With an Honours Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Ms. Chong Yit Cheng, Rachel, has over 8-years of Electronics Manufacturing Industry experience. Rachel was retrenched from her previous role due to the economic downturn and wanted to pursue a career within the Biomedical Manufacturing Industry in Singapore which she felt was a more stable Industry and also that her strong background in Quality Assurance would be applicable and transferable to this Industry. Rachel has since been successfully offered a role as a QA Engineer in the Medical Device Industry, Baxter Healthcare SA.
“The medical device company which I interviewed with recognised this training program. They were convinced that my commitment in the course will help me to contribute to the job which I applied for. As a matter of fact, before I attended this programme, I applied for their Supplier Quality Engineer post (which was very relevant to my previous job), I was not even shortlisted for an interview. I think this is one of the main reasons why I was shortlisted this time around for the QA Engineer job interview which resulted in being offered the job so smoothly was due to this programme”.
In Rachel’s new role in Baxter Healthcare, she will be responsible for product quality improvement through failure analysis, risk assessments and quality engineering. Perform/ support process capability, engineering changes, validation and design transfer.
“I would definitely recommend the program to my ex-colleagues – knowing and experiencing the benefit upon attending the program myself”.
