Let’s follow the interview and learn more about her curious personality:
Starting with the easiest question, you’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?
I am going to call the elephant Peanut. Then I will buy a large piece of field to accommodate her and make it pleasant for her to live there – I’ll create a jungle with a lovely pond for Peanut to enjoy. Elephants are social creatures, right? They live in herds. So I’ll find Peanut a few friends. I’m not saying other elephants because they would dry the nut shops in Sofia, but a few dogs, maybe a capibara (they are so friendly)… and then Peanut will have a nice, cute herd where she will feel happy and at home. Also, elephants need to keep themselves busy, and as big as these fields will be, I don’t think it would be enough for Peanut. So I’ll take her for walks, go shopping, etc. I’ve always wondered what it’s like to put an elephant in a glass shop…
What is the biggest assumption people tend to make about you — be it wrong or right?
Based on my easy-going and goofy personality, many people think that I am naïve. And it always brings me great pleasure to see their faces when they realize I am not.
What do you love most about working in agency recruitment?
The ability to talk to many different people daily, experience their energy, hear their thoughts, and maybe learn something new.
What do you like least about working in agency recruitment?
Honestly, I think it’s the sourcing. It’s too repetitive and not creative enough for me.
What do you most value in team members?
Open and honest communication. My understanding of a team is that we are one-for-all and all-for-one. It’s not a one-man show.
What is the most overused or overrated thing that recruiting pros believe about themselves?
As a recruiter, you must understand the positions you are recruiting for. However, many recruiters often believe they know more about the positions than those working in that industry/in that position. As much as you can learn, you can’t have better expertise than someone who has worked this professionally.
What is your current state of mind as it relates to the current state of recruiting?
As an IT recruiter and given the current shift away from IT positions in the recruitment world, I am trying to change my mindset and focus. So, I am trying to be flexible and adjust to the changes.
If you could have dinner with any two famous people, dead or alive, who would you choose?
David Attenborough & Emperor Augustus – I can learn a lot from both of them in terms of perseverance, fighting for a cause, the difficulties they’ve encountered, and how to keep the balance of different aspects of their lives.
Most important question: What’s your go-to karaoke song?
Pink – let’s get the party started.
