Three months ago, I was still a fresh graduate feeling very anxious about job hunting. In the face of uncertainty, I got a job opportunity here at Garage Society. At that time, I just had a vague idea of co-working spaces.
The experiences that I had so far were really out of my expectations. Besides doing administrative work, I'm able to meet a bunch of awesome people from all kinds of industries, every day. I still remember that I spent quite a long time figuring out the diverse community of Garage Society!
I really enjoy working at Garage Society! As a fresh grad, I'm very lucky to have the chance to get to know people in different industries, organise events from the very beginning, attend some chambers' events, and learn about sales and marketing strategies. Working here helps me learn more about myself. As they assign me different tasks, I can understand my strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, I can improve myself, enhance my self-confidence, and develop a clear career goal. :) I'm also grateful that I can work with a team that gives me loving care and support all the time. :D
As part of our #BeTheChange series, we sit down and discuss how work has evolved, with change-makers in our Garage Community.
This week we chat with Zev, an artist and lighting consultant. She uses The 33PRESS moniker for her artistic endeavors, and prefers to remain anonymous!
We chat about finding fulfillment, creating balance, and embracing discomfort in a cut-throat city like Hong Kong.

Most importantly, we need to search for it. If you’re lucky, you’ll find not just a job or career but a mission.
