Meet Veronika! She’ll be coordinating the talent experience as our Talent Success Manager.She brings generous experience in the community and events industry after previously working as a community lead WeWork. Let’s get to know her a little better!
Can you share two interesting facts about yourself?
Mother language is Hungarian - one of the most difficult languages in the world; I got married during the pandemic in a random chapel in Las Vegas (yep, the same one that Michael Jordan used!)
How do you like to spend your weekends?
I like to take time to connect with my friends and family, go out for a good meal, go for a walk, have a coffee, exercise, read, watch and listen. On weekends I pursue my secret passion (baking) and take a moment to plan ahead.
What is the most unconventional job you ever had?
Teaching assistant during my university years. While I was still studying, taking exams as a 3rd-year undergraduate student, I also held office hours for my classmates, tutorials, and corrected their exams. It was a great experience and I learned so much from my professor (who was also my boss), but it felt really weird to be teaching my classmates too!
Why did you choose to join Lawtrades?
I chose to join Lawtrades because what it stands for is really the future of work. Both in terms of what they offer to clients and talents as their product/service, as well as an employer to their employees. I used to work with Hannah (head of community) back at WeWork, and she spoke so highly of Lawtrades that I had to see what it was all about!
What are your primary responsibilities?
Making sure that our talents know how to best utilize the platform, to help them make the most, the best, and simply a success out of it. To help them grow professionally. I am always up and open for a good chat, to hear others' stories, and to find creative solutions. I like questions, and love finding answers to them. A smile is a curve that sets everything straight, so keeping talents happy and smiling is the goal.
What are you most looking forward to in this position?
That it's all about flexibility; things aren't set in stone and so I can be part of building things up. That we are in this together. That creative ideas are encouraged and welcome. That I can be part of something bigger.
Where do you think you help the most in this position?
I am hoping to build up real connections with talents and to "humanize" the system for them, to make sure they know: it isn't only a platform run by algorithms where they can find a job. It is more than that. And it is run by humans who listen, care, and support their growth.
