Can being a Tennis-“star” make me a good Talent Sourcer?

As many of you know by now, I have happily started my dream job as Talent Sourcer with what I believe to be the best talent searching company in Norway- AvantGarde Search.

Here we deliver the best management and specialist talent to start-ups, small and medium size tech-companies. In other words; I am now officially a proud AvantGarder! 😊

Why AvantGarde Search you may ask? First of all it was the people, but then also the idea or concept if you like. While more or less all of the business and technology community becomes “agile”, why doesn’t the recruitment industry or headhunting industry? Well, in AvantGarde Search we do things DIFFERENT than the norm. At AvantGarde we dare to use an agile method of recruiting. We dare to strip down outdated processes and tools to the bone and rebuild using agile values & principles.

Another thing that triggered me was the opportunity to become a recruitment specialist within my own field. Like my colleagues, Fathia and Ann Hege who only work with sales, marketing and design roles, my colleague Lotte who only works with SW Developers or my colleagues Jonas and Patrick who only recruit for IoT companies and so on. Well, my area isn’t 100% decided yet as we will tailor it to best fit my skills, personality and competencies. In other words; we will use an agile method to find my areas of specialization. Pretty cool right?

I am confident that my Economics degree from University of Central Florida as well as International Business studies from Modul University Vienna have prepared me for this opportunity, but also hope my passion for business and technology will go a long way in making me support my clients with sourcing the best talent. And my true passion now that I am an AvantGarder? Finding the perfect “missing piece” of a puzzle for my clients.

Outside of work I am married to my amazing husband. Before coming to Norway I lived in Florida for 18 years with my parents, siblings, and later on 3 beautiful nieces. I am an avid tennis player and competed in many tournaments growing up, eventually becoming a tennis instructor. Speaking of tennis, did you see my header? Well perhaps, I will write a more detailed article answering this question in the not too distant future.

If you would like to learn more about me and the company, feel free to contact me or any of my colleagues. We love meeting new technology companies 😊
