During the 2020 pandemic, many people faced unprecedented challenges, finding opportunities to reinvent themselves professionally. A clear example of this resilient adaptation is the story of Yaira Muñoz, whose time at Castor marked a before and after in her career.
Before the pandemic, Yaira managed her video game store, a business she ran with success and dedication. However, the arrival of COVID-19 led to the closure of her business, forcing her to seek new horizons. Despite being in the final stages of her training as a systems engineer, she faced an uncertain and challenging future.
The opportunity arose at Castor, where Yaira joined the team with no previous experience in software development. This shift represented a significant challenge for her, accustomed to a different sector. Despite this, her determination and technical skills led her to excel. At Castor, Yaira demonstrated her ability to adapt and learn quickly and her skill in making significant contributions to the team.
During her time at the company, Yaira experienced notable professional growth. She got involved in various projects, facing and overcoming challenges that initially seemed beyond her reach. This experience strengthened her professionally and brought a new balance to her personal life. Working from home allowed her to spend more time with her son, a positive change that deeply impacted her family life.
Although Yaira is no longer part of the Castor team, her story shows how resilience and a willingness to learn can transform adversities into opportunities. Her journey is a clear reminder that, even in the most challenging moments, there is a possibility to grow, innovate, and succeed. At Castor, Yaira found a job and a platform to reinvent herself and reach new heights in her professional career.
