“Super procedure, extremely friendly and competent people – both the HR department and future supervisors were very friendly and accommodating.” (Kununu user on the recruiting process at b.telligent)
After studying business administration in Germany and The Netherlands, I started in 2007 at one of the largest European employment agencies. Here I learned the recruiting trade from the bottom up, and remained in this field through the summer of 2014, at which point I decided to switch to the corporate side. The decision was easy for me, since b.telligent was my client and I already knew the company very well. My gut feeling at the time was right: no bureaucracy, lots of room to make decisions, much responsibility, and very cordial colleagues!
Being responsible for recruiting new employees, it’s very important for me to look at more than just the candidate during the interview. I want to know why this is person interested in us. What hobbies does he/she have? Where would this person like to be in a few years? Generally, one or two colleagues from the relevant department also take part in the interview to pose technical questions.
Professional, authentic and cordial - my impression from the first conversation at b.telligent, which is corroborated newly each day. After my studies in business administration with specialization in the hotel sector and tourism in Freiburg and Helsinki, and three years in personnel consulting, I looked around purposefully for a position involving in-house recruitment.
Sought. Found. The expectations and gut feelings concurred on both sides, and everything else then happened very quickly. My responsibilities include supervision of the department and candidates in the entire recruitment process. An activity which brings lots of variety and which I enjoy greatly. Every day is different, giving me the opportunity to organize my time personally, and contribute and develop according to my own interests.
As concerns candidates, I am particularly interested in learning where they see their strengths and how they can get involved, not only in projects, but also as part of the enterprise and the team. Because as a "b.telligent family", we develop jointly.
Already during my training previously as an industrial clerk, I was able to gain initial experience in the field of human resources. From then on, I knew: That's something I'd like to do.
I went on to study business administration, specializing in personnel management, in Munich. The course had been set: All I needed now was to find the right vacancy. Beginning as a working student at btelligent, I subsequently found my career start here. And now - one and a half years later - I can only say: I was right on target!
As someone responsible for the areas of human resources & recruiting, I am excited by the diversity, in particular. Conducting interviews, discovering strengths and weaknesses, and motivating candidates is always very stimulating.
Most importantly, however, I have found a new (professional) family - one which grows with each new employee.
