Are you a woman interested in pursuing a career in a male-dominated field?
Look no further than Mandy Neo, a female mechanic with years of experience in the automotive industry.
In the latest episode of Work It, Mandy shares her journey and the challenges she faced in a typically male environment.
From her mother’s discouragement to the lack of female mechanics in her cohort, Mandy persevered through sexism and stereotypes to become a trusted technical service advisor at Motor EDGEvantage Pte Ltd
But it’s not just about breaking barriers and defying expectations. Mandy’s passion for cars and technical skills have allowed her to troubleshoot common car issues and build customer relationships.
She even took courses to learn about electrical vehicles, becoming one of the first few women to do so.
So if you’re a young woman interested in pursuing a technical career, don’t let external and internal stereotypes hold you back.
As Mandy advises, be confident and persistent in pursuing your passions, and remember that enjoying your work is just as important as the job itself.
And who knows, you might find your dream car along the way!
