Tips

  1. Feel free to ask HR for help, if your team requires specific skills and you don’t know who might have them. They will try to refer you to the right person(s).
  2. Feel free to ask your Country Manager or Regional Manager for consultancy, whether your idea makes business sense. Refer to them as mentors as well!
  3. If something is unclear, don’t suffer, ask Paul or Caterina for explanations (paul@creditinfo.com , c.ponsicchi@creditinfo.com)
