When I started at Talented, my expectation was that Talented was doing groundbreaking work for recruitment, particularly in the Talent side, and not just in Finland but in the global market too. I can now say that it’s very much so.
Talented looked down-to-earth, uncomplicated, fair, and approachable. When I saw that Teemu’s Google Meet wallpaper was the fire of “This is fine” meme, I knew I was in the right place with the right people.
I think that it’s important to try to see your work as mindful work. That means seeing how each task educates or nurtures you. I think this is the best way to find pleasure in work.
Working at Talented has given me an exponential professional growth. From the day one I’ve felt that I’m highly appreciated and my work has a big impact to the success story of Talented.
Working at Talented is inspiring for me! I get to work with helping people while learning new things all the time. The support from my colleagues is one of a kind and something I never dared to dream of.
People always ask me how do I do it, combine career and family life. Our flexible working hours at Talented ables me to work from early mornings so I can be at home when my kids come from school.
