Cristina came from Spain

My name is Cristina Lahuerta, I am 23 years old, and I am the International sales specialist for the Spanish market in Provet Cloud. I just finished my studies in International marketing and sales. I move first to Finland 3 years ago due to my exchange year in my degree studies. I was studying International tourism and event management. I moved to Porvoo to study for 9 months in Haaga-Helia UAS Porvoo campus where I experienced the best year of my life.

In Finland I’ve met incredibly awesome people, I have lived really good adventures, and of course, I’ve fallen in love with this awesome country. That’s why a year after I decided to move back and start a new life.

In 2017 I started my studies in International Sales and marketing what allowed me to have a student job in Helsinki, which already showed me how is the workflow in Finland and how different is from the Spanish one. I really like the idea that here in Finland everything is much more relaxed and there’s no hierarchy and is really awesome see the CEO of the company walking to your table to ask you something. In general, I think Spain needs to learn from Finland in this sense.

About Finnish, English, and Spanish I have to say that right now isn’t an Issue. Of course, I’m still learning Finnish, and I have to admit it feels rude to make everybody change the language, but I promise I’m working on it. Actually at the office right now the main language is English and is really nice to hear everybody talking one common language that allowed everybody to communicate with each other.

In my days off I love to go out to walk around and take some pictures of the lovely Finnish nature in the sunny days. Winter -22 and sun that’s one of my passions, travel and read.

Since I started, I’m really falling in love with this company.
