Mistakes, Challenges, and Curiosity: Kamilla Dvorakovskaya from Joom #BreaksTheBias

In this post, we interview Kamilla Dvorakovskaya from Joom shares abut her learnings, challenges that one needs to go through, and how one should adapt themselves at work.

What’s the best work-related advice you’ve ever received?

I think the best advice that I received at Joom was to change my point of view regarding mistakes. We, at Joom, see mistakes as an opportunity to start all over again with the knowledge about what was done wrong.

The second tip I would highlight is to ask questions. This is absolutely normal not to know something. My colleagues at Joom are always very open and ready to help. The more I ask the more I learn.

And last but not least, listen to your colleagues, even if you think you are 100% right.

What do you wish you had known before entering the mobile industry?

A lot of things. Firstly, I will talk about the challenges related to writing a code, understanding development languages, and other IT specifics. As I started working as a Joom marketing manager, I had to adapt myself to this new vocabulary as well. I made a notebook of words where I was writing down everything unfamiliar, that I could hear or read in this new environment.

I would also advise myself to be ready to be in the position, which is always looking for information, conducting tests, refuting, or confirming hypotheses.

Do you have a specific book, podcast, publication, quote, or else you could recommend that we women in mobile & tech could learn from?

It’s hard to name just one book or a podcast, which can be the key to success. We should always develop ourselves according to time and not be ignorant towards modern achievements and information, regardless of being women or men. I believe that ignorance keeps people to be left behind.

I could say that listening to conferences and reading articles on various platforms related to marketing is very useful for me. For example, the last book I have read is  Ogilvy’s book on advertising.


When you make mistakes, you learn better. As Kamilla points out, it should be an opportunity to reflect upon what went wrong and improvise all over again. Adapting yourself quickly to the environment helps you build yourself professionally and fosters a curious mindset.
