Requested for Uber one morning, I got into the car, the uncle asked me for direction which gave me the impression the uncle is new and doesn’t seem to know the way so I started a conversation with him.
He’s in his 50s and it was just his second day with Uber. He was telling me that he was actually in housing agent for many many years and he just came back from China after being posted for more than a decade. Learning where I work at he offered to help if my boss wanted to invest in China market.
This is not the first time I met people driving Uber has a professional background. I enjoyed my conversation with him and I got to learn something from another person. Thanks to Uber who gave an opportunity to some people to have a job and a flexibility that they can juggle with both work and personal life.
