Sure, we go deeper in some initiatives that in others because we relate to them more, but it is the wealth of opportunities that motivates us to do different things and that challenges us every single day.
As Visa cardholders and millennials, we want our card to be another convenience in our daily lives but more than that, we want it to solve problems – and working here allows us to contribute and execute ideas that overcome barriers in a way that was unimaginable five years ago. For instance, who would have thought we could request a card using an app, without having to call the bank or go to a branch? Who would have thought we could make a purchase and have customer service provided by a robot on a social network? Or even donate money to causes we believe in and want to support, without actually paying anything for this, but simply by using our card? We were able to see these and other projects unfold firsthand, and make suggestions, make them happen and, above all, celebrate their results!
Also, one has to be bold to take a big idea from the drawing board to reality – and Visa knows how to do it. Last year, the company launched the first startup acceleration program in Brazil (which we think is very cool!). Now, in the second year of the program, we not only have the chance to work for a company that supports innovative dreams but can also be a part of them! Supporting and participating in Demodays, nominating projects we believe in, following their progress closely and mentoring them are possibilities that are within our reach at the company and only increase our desire to make things happen and see the market become more and more disruptive.
Lastly, working for Visa is not limited to our Monday to Friday hours. When we get off work, we meet our friends and pay attention to how they pay a check – if they don’t use Visa, we have many arguments to convince them that they are missing out on several advantages! With this continued habit of advocating for, we end up making most of our friends want to work for Visa, engage with our partners’ offers and the benefits associated with our company’s cards and, above all, choose Visa as the most loved brand by millennials.
