Arpine Hakobjanyan has been working at the “Elola” milk processing factory since 2016. She started her professional career as a dairy lab technician, then in a short period of time she registered professional growth, occupying the position of the laboratory manager.

Years ago, when I was still 27 years old, I accidentally found a job at the “Elola” milk processing factory. While studying at Goris State University, I acquired the qualification of a specialist in biochemistry, and after several years of non-professional work, I was looking for a job related to my qualification.

I saw the announcement of “Elola” company about the vacant position of a dairy laboratory technician and decided to try my hand at it.

The profession of milk and dairy technologist and laboratory technician is very interesting. You just have to try. I am sure that as soon as you go to a workshop and apply gained knowledge in practice, you will immediately fall in love with the profession and your work.

I got hired very easily, and after two-month probation period, my success story and professional growth began. My love for work and determination to excel did not go unnoticed by my employer, and within a short period of time I was offered the position of the quality control officer, and after 4 years I became the manager of the laboratory. Currently, I am entrusted to coordinate the process of obtaining ISO 22000 food safety management system (FSMS) certification.

While working at “Elola” LLC I received an offer to teach at the Goris State Agricultural Collage after professor Kh. Yeritsyan, in the faculty of milk and dairy technology.

I consider myself a lucky person because, even small, but I have my own investment in creating quality dairy products, I am happy that I am doing what I love and enjoy.

I am glad that I have the opportunity not only to apply my knowledge at work, but also to transfer it to my students.

I have been working in the field of dairy production for 7 years and I have never regreted my choice of career path.

Every single day I go to work with great pleasure and I strive to make more efforts to have my own contribution in safe food and quality products creation.
