Hi, I’m Xupo Zhang, R&D Manager of the Surface and Exploration Drilling division at Epiroc (Nanjing) Construction & Mining Equipment Co., Ltd. According to Chinese tradition, I was born in the Year of the Dog. So 2018 is my animal year. Can you guess my age now?
The Internal Job Market provides a good career development platform to apply position which I like and suits me. During my 11 years at Atlas Copco and now Epiroc Nanjing, I have had a number of positions within the R&D department, from R&D Engineer, Project Manager, Mechanical Group Manager, Global Modularization Manager, and my current position as R&D Manager.
In this journey, step by step, I have attended some leadership development programs, e.g. LDP program and Leadership Plus program. The Epiroc training system has assisted me in quickly completing the transfer to different roles, especially from an engineer to a team leader, and my experience and confidence was built up for the new challenge. Now I will attend the Aspire program this year.
