Conversation with Gustavo Higuera, Jr., CRP, GMS What is the one app that you cannot live without? “WhatsApp allows me to have connectivity with all types of relevant audiences: from clients to colleagues, to good friends and family members from around the world.” Regional Vice President, Latin America Weichert Workforce Mobility Inc. Miami, Florida USA How did you become involved with Worldwide ERC ® ? “I was invited to participate in a global summit by the company I was working with at the time. Since then, I have found that the best way to grow in this industry is to stay involved with and take part in Worldwide ERC ® certification programs and events. Active participation really makes a difference.” How do you describe your work to those outside of the industry? “Some of my friends still think I am a ‘head hunter,’ but when I explain to them what we do, they find it quite fascinating. I get a lot of questions about what looks like a magical and very advanced process to them. We have so many interesting, real-world, human stories to share that demonstrate what an amazing field this is in which to learn and find opportunities to help people.” What’s the best advice you’ve received? “The Scottie Waves quote: ‘Stay open minded. Things aren’t always what they seem to be.’ The lesson is that we should see the perspective of others before making a judgment, and learn more by listening. This has been instrumental in making my journey in life better and more enjoyable.” If you weren’t in your current job, what would you be doing? “I’d be 100% dedicated to being THE BEST Grandpa! Our family recently welcomed our first granddaughter -the most beautiful baby in the world!” The ability to connect with other mobility professionals — digitally and in person — is one of your most valuable assets as a member of Worldwide ERC ® .
