Anchie Huang, Level 2 Industrial Engineer at The Boeing Company, was recently promoted to a Level 3 Industrial Engineer. According to Anchie, an increase on skill level is based on the knowledge and skills someone acquires, along with the number of years they've been with the company. However, feeling super driven and wanting to get ahead of the curve, Anchie reached Level 3 in two years, instead of the minimum of five years it takes. Two years ago, he set forth to reach Level 2, but now he has exceeded his target by achieving this success in the past four years working for The Boeing Company. For Anchie, he realizes it's a great accomplishment, but he knows there are more challenges ahead. After recently graduating from the Asian Discovery Program, Anchie reflects on his promotion and time with EDI, "From the Personal Branding workshop, I learned you need to put yourself out there and prove your capabilities whether you’re interested in getting promoted, participating in EDI's Leadership Discovery Program, or looking for another position. If you don’t speak up or communicate, then people won’t know what your interests are."
