    Hello. I’m a 38yrs old lady. Since I studied electrical engineering in 2005. I passed my N1-N3 with no practicals. I’ve been looking for opportunities but unfortunately no luck for me. I really love electrical engineering and I’m still looking for a company that can offer me the opportunity as I’ll be a good asset to that company. I have experience in sales and call center but I’m still looking forward to having my dream being true. Is there any company that is willing to help women out there regardless of experience they have? I’m a very fast learner and always looking forward for new challenges. Please advice if there is any help out there. Kind regards,
