Blanca De La Rosa

About the Author

Blanca De La Rosa was born in the Dominican Republic. She grew up in the projects of the upper west side of Manhattan in New York, during the time before the Hispanic population developed the supportive Latino community that exists today. Although she struggled without support in her cultural and linguistic transition, De La Rosa was able to graduate from Pace University with a bachelor’s degree in international business management and to establish a successful thirty-four-year career rising through the ranks of Mobil Oil then ExxonMobil Oil Corporation. During her career, she held numerous positions, both domestic and international, in nature with increasing responsibility. These assignments took her around the United States, Europe, Central and South America, and Nigeria. De La Rosa retired from ExxonMobil after thirty-four years of service. As a business development manager and president of the company’s employee resource group, she represented her company as lead presenter at the Regional and National Scholarship Awards hosted by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. Also, she represented her company as host, keynote speaker, and panelist of various events with organizations supported by the company’s charity foundation. After thirty-four years in the industry, she says her most rewarding role was serving as a mentor to the young employees in her company-guiding them through the corporate maze. De La Rosa is the author of Empower Yourself for an Amazing Career, published by Balboa Press, a Division of Hay House, in which she shares career advice, drawing heavily from her successes. She offers a fresh approach and insight on climbing the corporate ladder, combining practical, common-sense advice with inner wisdom and spirituality, providing strategies to increase the chances of success in the workplace. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
