Here she explains how she landed her first job at Philips and why she’s loving being surrounded by great people and taking on exciting challenges:
My journey to Philips…
“I studied Business and Marketing Management at the University of Ghent followed by a Masters in Journalism at the University of Brussels. I write a fashion and lifestyle blog called the rewind mag in my spare time. It’s something I really enjoy but I wanted to use my economic background, so I applied to a recruitment company and they put me forward for the role at Philips in the Brand, Communications and Digital team.”
I had a great click with the person who interviewed me. It was like talking to a friend and I remember thinking, “if I can work for this woman, then it will really be great."
“My interviews went really well. It’s funny, you often hear from people working here that there is often a ‘click’ and I really felt that. I was offered another contract while I was interviewing at Philips and I turned it down because I just knew I really wanted to work here. From start to finish, the process took 2 weeks and everyone was so nice and efficient. I joined and there was a desk ready with my team and a great welcome. I’d heard friends say that starting work could be really difficult and hard to fit in, but this was so different – everyone was really nice from Day 1.”
