I joined Agilent in April 2012 and I could not have imagined just how good of an opportunity I was walking into. My job here has helped me excel both personally and professionally. It has made me realize the potential I have to grow and provided the opportunities to do so. I am empowered to perform at my best and deliver excellent service every day.
I joined Agilent in January 2014 as a Process Mechanical Engineer straight from University. Since day one, people around me have been very helpful in guiding me as a fresh graduate, and they always encourage me to explore my skills and talent. In a short period of time, I have been given a lot of opportunities to develop as an engineer. Agilent applies innovation as one of the company’s values, and over time it has nurtured me to always think out of the box and beyond.
I joined Agilent just after finishing my PhD in neurobiology in 2012, and was hired in as a specialist for a scientific support function. Relatively quickly I found myself interested in getting to know additional business areas such as R&D, operations, QA and sales.
I started my career at Agilent as a spectroscopy sales intern as part of my co-operative program at Concordia University. The majority of the students in my department (biochemistry) elected to pursue laboratory-based positions for their internships; however I knew that I wanted something more dynamic for my last two internship sessions having completed my first two work-terms locked inside window-less lab rooms with an LC-MS as my best friend at work.
I am Sophia Teh, and I graduated from INTI International College Penang with a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting from the University of Wollongong, Australia. I have been with Agilent for a year and it is wonderful. Since the first day at work, my seniors have been very helpful and caring. They are willing to teach me even though they were extremely busy when I came in. They accepted me to the team and soon became good friends.
I moved from Texas to Little Falls Delaware to take an intern position on Melanie Fitzgerald’s instrument online sales team. After 5 months I was offered a permanent position as a transactional generalist. By continuing to make connections and develop relationships through team bonding events, field day, on-site volleyball, etc. I learned about a variety of processes that allowed me to excel at my TG job.
