Andreas in India
"Be Willing to Learn and Try"
Andreas Roupé from Sweden had long wanted to take advantage of Volvo's international job opportunities, but until his manager asked if he was interested in moving to Bangalore he had never considered India.
“After discussing it with my wife and two kids, we decided to take on the challenge,” says Andreas. “So far, the experience has been really good and the whole family is enjoying it. There are cultural differences and I find myself in situations I’ve never been in before, but overall it has been easier than expected.” His current role in Bangalore is to establish a section to oversee global responsibility for the Telematics Gateway software.
Andreas believes that the key to personal growth is having a willingness to learn and try new things. “Don’t focus too much on the next step in your career, focus instead on the assignment you have today. I don’t know where my career will lead me after Bangalore, but as long as I keep learning new things and do my best in my current position, I know that new and interesting assignments will come.”
