    E23 – 8 Productivity Hacks Startup-Life Has Taught Me

    E23 – 8 Productivity Hacks Startup-Life Has Taught Me

    And here I was, thinking that I was pretty good at productivity, and that my work experience of 10 years had allowed me to establish some stellar ways of working... But then (plot twist!), when I joined the startup life 4 months ago, I realized that there were still plenty of opportunities to take my productivity skills up a notch.

    Whether it had to do with making it a habit to challenge status quo, finding more elaborate ways to manage my time and projects, or even learning my way around new tools like Notion and Slack, I went through a great learning period and came out feeling much more comfortable about my ways of working in a fast-moving, hyper-agile startup like Pitch.

    I’m sure I still have a huge learning curve ahead of me in my new role, but I’d love to fill you in on some of the hacks I learned so far!

    E22 – 5 Top Mistakes to Avoid During an Interview

    E22 – 5 Top Mistakes to Avoid During an Interview

    As a practical follow-up to my very first episode on how to answer Behavioural Interview Questions (and nail pretty much any interview), I thought I’d bring up some additional “Interview Prep 101” pointers. Because preparing for your interview from a content perspective is extremely important, but understanding interview etiquette and avoiding some blatant faux-pas is just as crucial.

    Listen in to find out what top mistakes you’ll definitely want to avoid when going into any kind of interview, and of course I’ll also dish out some tips on what you can do to shine. Zoom-Interview type advice included, of course!

    E21 - Feedback 101: 5 Tips around Receiving Feedback

    E21 - Feedback 101: 5 Tips around Receiving Feedback

    Feedback - feedback everywhere! Most companies these days are all about the fast feedback culture. There’s many reasons why - mostly because instant, situational and well-delivered feedback is helping individuals to grow, develop and learn from their mistakes.

    In order to foster this feedback culture, many organizations make a point to teach employees the art of giving feedback. However, we’re not putting enough emphasis on how to actually receive feedback! So in this episode, I want to help you understand what good (and bad) feedback looks like, and also give you 5 tips on how to receive feedback properly.

    And one thing I’d like to emphasize is that even though feedback is a gift (and many these days feel encouraged to “gift away” whenever possible) - you don’t always have to accept it!

    E20 – Recruiter Pre-Screens 101

    E20 – Recruiter Pre-Screens 101

    Pre-Screens (also known as Screening Calls or Introductory Conversations) are the first touch-point between a candidate and a recruiter, and they are a crucial step to select the best candidates for any given role. The more efficient your pre-screen technique, the more efficient your filtering is. And the better you filter, the better your funnel ratios become - which saves your hiring manager a lot of time on the interviewing front!

    In today’s episode, we’ll dive a little bit deeper into the art of pre-screening candidates. Calling it an art is no understatement: recruiters and sourcers have to check many different things within a very limited amount of time, while simultaneously selling the candidate on the opportunity at hand.

    I’d therefore like to share some of my personal tips to help you conduct a pre-screen that helps you tick off the most important boxes whilst remaining engaging and personable!

    E19 – The truth behind the chase for Promotions, Big Titles and People Management

    E19 – The truth behind the chase for Promotions, Big Titles and People Management

    Whenever there’s a talk about professional growth and development, there’s almost always a talk about wanting to get that next-level promotion, the fancy title and/or becoming a manager. And according to where one stands in their career path, those are absolutely fair aspirations.

    However, while we’re always hustling to climb that career ladder, we sometimes forget to check ourselves and to evaluate if those targets are actually compatible with who we are, how we’re doing and which environment we’re in.

    If promotion, bigger title, and/or people management are on your radar, then let this episode be your reality check. Are you set on those goals for the right reasons, and are you approaching them the right way?

    Let’s explore some unfiltered truths around those themes - from the potential trap of acting too entitled, to the reality of being trapped in an environment that doesn’t actually allow you to shine and grow - and of course, we’ll touch on how to best get to whatever goal you set yourself!

    E18 – The journey of a "Swiss-Army Knife" Recruiter (with Anna Stimamiglio)

    E18 – The journey of a "Swiss-Army Knife" Recruiter (with Anna Stimamiglio)

    This week’s podcast guest, Anna Stimamiglio, is – like many other previous guests – a friend and former colleague I met at Amazon. She is a young recruiting professional who – to date – has worked in no less than 3 countries, and is about to conquer her 4th country, after having recently moved from Canada to Switzerland for a Recruiting role with Deloitte. In less than 5 years, Anna has had a taste of many working environments from start-up to big corporates, and also given many different forms of recruiting a try.

    However, Anna’s story doesn’t only surprise by her curiosity to seek out diverse experiences and finding her sweet spot. It also surprises by Anna’s truly remarkable ability to deal with professional setbacks, such as having to go through the unnerving motions of a layoff in what seemed like a sure-as-rock role. Or having to question the sustainability of working for a company that isn’t doing so well financially. And finally: having to conquer your inner critical voice in order to gain back the courage to tell your professional story with confidence.

    So if you can relate to the fact that (work-)life is not just rainbows and butterflies but oftentimes includes challenges and personal growth, have a listen to Anna’s unfiltered and super inspiring recount of her career path to date. One that’s certainly not like the others!
