Meet Administrative Assistant, Vicky Cabrera. A talented singer and the first face that greets you at the office, Vicky is no stranger to the spotlight. We all know her for her great voice, permanent smile, and can-do attitude, but here are 3 things you might not know about her:
1. What’s the soundtrack to your life?
Any track sung by a diva is what I would consider my life’s soundtrack. From Celine Dion’s “The power of love” to Whitney Houston’s “I have nothing”. To me, powerful voices echo the intense moments life sometimes brings you.
2. What would you say to your first-day-at-Newlink self?
Don’t get overwhelmed and don't do everything yourself. Team work is the key to this company’s success. You are never alone.
3. Describe your job in 3 words.
Hands-on, detail- oriented , encouraging.
#DeskPersonalities is back! And not by lack of personality. This time the lens falls on Ofelia Barber, Executive Assistant to our CEO and our in-house problem solver. This is her desk interview, where we ask only the tough questions.
1. Describe your work ethic with a fictional character?
Princess Merida from Brave. Feisty, strong, independent and spunky. She brakes the mold and doesn’t conform to stereotypes. Clearly, a Type A personality.
2. If chaos is 10 and control is 1, where does your work-self lie?
As a good Libra, I’m always trying to find balance… As much as I would love to be in total control, that’s not how life works. Plus, a little chaos adds spice to life and I love a challenge.
3. What is your favorite object in this picture and why? I should say the picture of my son, who’s always looking at me… but, to be honest, it’s the wood square. Love the sarcasm.
Collaboration and a purpose can solve anything.
In today’s world, we must continuously adapt and evolve.
At times it seems overwhelming. But we’re not alone.
Technology has created unprecedented levels of interconnection. Organizations, employees, customers, suppliers, competitors, journalists, government, citizens: we’re all part of the same network. We can feel exposed and vulnerable in this transparent, interconnected world. But technology has also proved empowering, enabling us to reach out to others and to come together in new and radically different ways.
At Newlink we identify a greater purpose – one that can be shared across a network and that will inspire collaboration – knowing that it will trigger transformative change.
That defines our purpose. To Ignite transformation.
Newlink has a dynamic, high-energy culture of ongoing evolution, which dares our professionals to leap outside of their comfort zone. Our growth comes as a result of innovative work and remarkable client collaboration. With a network of offices throughout the region Newlink offers big resources and talent with the spirit, values and passion of a tight-knit family. We invite you to embark on an amazing journey.
At the core of our culture is making great things happen. We are relentless in our pursuit of transformative results. Because the world is in constant change we are constantly reinventing ourselves.
Today there is no place for absolute truths.
Because of this, we have developed a new model that we call collaborative consulting.
A method that involves the client in the entire strategic process, because today, reaching objectives depends on complex factors and the first recommendation of any consultancy should be to leverage the talent already within an organization. A model that continues to believe in specialized skills, but only when working together as part of a holistic vision, geared toward results.
In an era dominated by velocity, transparency, collaboration and social conscience, it is imperative to go beyond mere theory. We think that a consulting firm in today’s world needs to not only oversee execution, but be committed to results.
At Newlink, we have developed proprietary programs designed to help our clients create a more effective world. And we implement the programs from beginning to end, through concerted efforts and collaborative methods.

Close contact to Senior Management
Workload might create stress on employees
I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newlink (Miami, FL) in June 2016.
-Very interesting, hands-on tests
-First interviews where through Skype with 3 different team members on separate dates
-Then got to do several tests (social media knowledge and also some sample FB and Twitter posts)
-Finally got invited to the office (Since I was previously not in Miami)
-Got the offer right there!
