A career beyond borders

From São Paulo to Ho Chi Minh City, Silvia's career in recruitment has taken her around the world.

Previously working in the Robert Walters office in Brazil, Silvia Quirino sought new challenges and embraced opportunities in the Philippines and Vietnam. She decided to move and eventually found the experiences rewarding and eye-opening. Silvia recounts her journey below.


A few years ago, when I was still working for Robert Walters in Brazil, I was looking for ways to challenge myself in my recruitment career, and one of my managers in São Paulo recommended that I consider working at another Robert Walters office overseas. I loved the idea, since recruitment work changes based on the market, and I reasoned that going overseas would help me expand my perspectives.

An opportunity in the Philippines really caught my eye, as I had heard that the economy there was rapidly growing with an influx of multinationals and foreign companies, and I was excited by what I’d be able to learn there. I was even invited to visit with my husband so that we could decide together whether it was a move we wanted to make.

Although I’d planned to return to Brazil after three years, I found myself wanting to experience life in another new country, so when an opportunity came up at Robert Walters in Vietnam, it sparked my interest.

Once again, I visited and spoke to the team there, learning about the business as well as the local culture and environment — by the end of the trip, I knew it was going to be a great fit for me.

Working abroad has been a great challenge and has opened my eyes to a different side of recruitment.

Working abroad has been a great challenge and has opened my eyes to a different side of recruitment in the Philippines and Vietnam. By immersing myself in a new culture, I’ve been able to learn how to adapt the way I work with my clients and candidates, focusing on their professional and personal motivations in order to build strong, long-lasting relationships with them.
