GDS International is one company which is known to offer the best working atmosphere for its employees. The company is one that sees to it that employees who work with it are satisfied with the working conditions, the pay and the way they are treated. And hence it is no wonder that the company is one of the most sought-after ones by top talents who have passed out of college.
Says Anna Ashby, 25 “Coming out of university, I had clear goals: wipe out my debts and begin a career by the time I was 25. I have always been an ambitious person but, realistically, at 23 I knew it was a tall order. Then I came across GDS.
I had never worked in sales, but the advert said ‘no experience necessary’, and the lure of exceptional commission, promotional opportunities and the possibility to travel abroad led me to apply.
Thankfully, I got the job. I started on March 5th 2007 on a relatively new project for GDS – a luxury lifestyle title: 100Thousand Club.” Anna who is working in the publishing division of GDS International added “I was delighted to be working on a publication that I was interested in and excited to develop. This challenge made me more determined to succeed and to meet my personal targets.”
GDS International is also known for offering their employees enough support and training all throughout their career. “The great thing about GDS is that the support and training does not end after the first week. Continuous sessions on personal development and guidance on cultivating sales techniques from the very best in the company reach across the Atlantic! And the company is extremely generous with its incentives to keep staff motivated, which range from cash prizes to exclusive five-star, all-inclusive holidays! I’m glad that GDS has afforded me such a wonderful opportunity to grow professionally and personally”, Adds Anna.
Anna who has been working with the company since she passed out of university has been promoted twice to full manager running a team of six in the past 14 months.
