Giselle: Do It As If It’s Your Last
Giselle (Nirodey KONG, 20) is a senior student majoring in International Relations at Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia (PUC). She works as a Public Relations Officer at Lodosha. Giselle is primarily responsible for maintaining a positive public image while developing promotions for services of Lodosha. Her works involve planning PR strategies, writing blog articles, scripting for advertising or promotional videos to be produced, designing posters, responding to the inquiries of the candidates on social media as well as making phone calls with candidates.
Talking to different candidates and writing new blog articles everyday at Lodosha make Giselle consider herself as a great communicator, very responsive and sensitive listeners, and a decent writer who enjoys uncovering and telling fascinating stories. At the same time, she believes working at Lodosha can improve her problem-solving skills as well as increasing business awareness and a good knowledge of current affairs.
Giselle finds working as a team at Lodosha is very rewarding. “ I really appreciate it when everyone feels comfortable to make suggestions and ideas.”, she expressed her delight. “We all make mistakes, you know, but here (Lodosha), we have a very supportive team who always helps improve each other's performance”, she added. She believes that a respectful and trustworthy team environment will not only enable them to think more creatively, but will lead them to more productive and collaborative brainstorming sessions. That’s what makes her like most about Lodosha.
In the next five years, Giselle wants to see Lodosha as a strong and successful dispatching company sending both qualitative and quantitative Cambodian workers to Japan. If she gets to describe Lodosha in three words, it would be “Transparent-Quality-Innovative”.

We all have the same goals in mind, and we're working together to achieve them,” she continued.
