French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
Now that I am diving into the job search again, I need an answer to THE question every recruiter will ask me: What about the last 3 years in the Philippines?
How will I ever impress a potential hiring manager? I need to come up with Something!
“Something” with numbers.
“Something” with action verbs and a track record of successes.
“Something” measurable and highly tangible.

2014-present: Domestic CEO of the Attilas Company.
Fair enough, don’t you think?
Parenting is the best MBA for continuous learning. My children are relentlessly teaching me to inspire leadership through emotional intelligence. I have worked on letting go of micromanaging to keep it interesting, went back to school to become the best Chief Happiness Officer I can. And it is still work in progress .
Talk about transferrable skills! Do you think I forgot any? 🙂
