Since then I found a role at Potentialpark that fit both Worlds

What is your story and how did you end up at Potentialpark?

I was always fascinated by other countries, people and everything foreign. That’s why I decided to visit as many places in the world as I can. During my Masters in International Cultural and Business Studies I spent 6 months in Sweden to study at Stockholm University. That was in 2015. I loved the Nordics and kept coming back until in Spring 2017, I decided to stay. Potentialpark and I found each other shortly after. Working around communication and data, with people from all over the globe was exactly what I wanted to do.  

What is your main task at Potentialpark?

In 2017 I started as a Key Account Manager, taking care of our German & Austrian clients, developing the DACH market further, preparing events & delivering our studies. 

I’ve just transitioned into Brand Strategy Management, working on the story our data tells us and while also strengthening the Potentialpark brand globally.

Potentialpark is a place with very inspiring and driven people. The high standards and commitment to quality everyone displays, motivates me daily. What I also really love is the fun we have together in and outside the office.

Just love it!

As a Brand Strategy Manager, what advice do you have for companies looking to improve their employer branding strategies?

Have a sense for the developments in the market and don’t embrace changes too slowly. The gaps between a fruitful and an outdated Talent Acquisition strategy will widen, and the tight talent market will lead to longer vacancies and a lack of qualitative hires. A strong, authentic, and targeted communication is key and you need to make sure you are visible for your target group.

What is your favorite song?
