It’s been raining for 6 straight days already! How wet can we be?
Anyway, I am just so happy that I got to do this interview waaaay before the whole metro is dripping wet from the constant downpour.
Let me share something about work on this post since I rarely really write about the behind-the-scenes of the brands and people I work with.
I am just really excited about this one, and quite challenged too, that is why I came prepared. I wrote my own questions and reviewed some interview tips on the web to guide me in my first ever interview blog and vlog.
So one afternoon, with my pregnant belly, and hardly-fitting corporate dress, I went out to meet Mr. Edward Rimmington, the Founder, and CEO of Gogozing.
About the Company
The term “Gogozing” means ‘Let’s go!’ or ‘Let’s do it. This is a popular expression in South Korea with “Go” coming from English word “go” and “Zing” being the sound of someone heading fast towards their target.
The “Zing” word actually reminds me of the movie Hotel Transylvania. I quite remember that it was part of the script of the lead characters, for it has such a positive ring to it.
The “Gogozing Migration” brand is built for people who want to go to Australia therefore “Let’s go” or “Let’s do it” provides that warm cheer and encouragement.
Gogozing Migration is an independent Australian immigration agency based in Melbourne, Australia, and Seoul, South Korea. They focus on providing high-quality immigration services to businesses, families, and individuals worldwide.
The company focuses on being trustworthy, reliable and 100% consumer-centered while selecting the most effective yet practical strategy in achieving client’s migration goals. They provide tourist and migration visas to Australia and are also very keen in helping Filipinos kickstart their Australian dream.
I was extremely impressed on how Mr. Rimmington was able to set up his company in such a young age, and how he was able to utilize his past working opportunities to recognize the need for Filipino migration assistance.
First thing is that I learned that he is a registered Australian migration agent (MARN: 1688177) who prior to establishing Gogozing Migration, worked and lived in South Korea in the field of international business. He was primarily involved in the consultancy and aiding enterprises from all around the world to enter the South Korean Market.
Inspiration to Start
While living in South Korea, Edward had his own share of experiences dealing with migration matters. It gave him a whole new perspective about people wanting to do business and starting a new life in a different country. He found that there were a lot of people who needed extra assistance and guidance about what they should do so their visas could be approved, and how can they adjust their lifestyle in a foreign land.
It was during this time that Edward got inspired to start Gogozing Migration. He thought that with his in-depth knowledge of international business and Australian Migration Law, he would be able to help others regarding their migration concerns. He thought that with a friendly and forthright approach, Gogozing Migration will be able to effectively help those who would want to explore their future in Australia.
And did I say he also speaks Korean? It was a shocker, but I still managed to keep my cool.
Honestly, I do not know much about migration, but this one definitely opened up a whole new world for me. I learned many things and at the same time, I gained friends! 😀
Mr. Edward Rimmington is such an inspiration, especially for startup founders. This only makes me believe that it only takes an eye and a deeper understanding to recognize a problem and provide a solution.
I was actually surprised that we got to finish sooner than I expected because I thought it would be too tedious and difficult. But apparently, Mr. Rimmington was a natural, and I was too! Haha Or I became comfortable later on since I got to shoot some scenes at the end part of the interview.
I am thrilled to show you guys how this interview will turn out, so watch out for my vlog very soon!
Till then merfriends! 😀
