"Intel's young, brilliant and enthusiastic workforce is a great source of inspiration for me."
What cool project have I had the opportunity to work on at Intel?
I'm working with the Intel Operational Decision Support Technology Group to build a simulation model for our next Assembly Test Manufacturing (ATM) factory in Vietnam. The model will provide insights into the future factory and help determine the optimum strategy to run the factory effectively.
This will be the first ATM factory to apply Lean manufacturing. Using simulation is an inexpensive and fast way for us to get an idea of how the new factory will look like, how it will behave and how different it is compared to traditional factories. From there we can determine the operational strategy. It's exciting to have an idea of the innovative factory in advance and help shape its operations and performance.
Do I participate in any Intel networks or volunteer events?
I belong to the RCG (Recent College Graduate) network. I also try to join Intel Involved activities as much as possible, including encouraging female students to pursue careers in engineering, walking for the education fund, delivering gifts to the poor, etc. All these add meaning to my life and help me balance my work/life better.
Why do I think Intel is a great place to work?
I appreciate the global aspect of the company as I work with people from all parts of the world, either face to face or via phone. Intel's young, brilliant and enthusiastic workforce is a great source of inspiration for me.
What do I do when I'm NOT at work?
I play with my baby and like to watch movies.
If I could live and work abroad for a year, where would I go?
The United States is the first thing that comes to mind. I went to graduate school there. I love the country and the people. And Intel's headquarters is there too. I definitely want to take this chance to go back to the US.
What's the coolest gadget that I've purchased lately?
An IPod* video. I never watch video on it though. I prefer a big screen!
