Hi! I'm Heidi, nice to meet you!
I'm a career nerd. I love analysing what makes people successful, what makes people happy at work and how our careers change over time.
I've been hiring, helping and coaching job seekers for well over a decade across various industries in Finland and in Germany.
I'm essentially what you would call "a generalist" or "a multipassionate": I have 10+ years of experience working in different People roles and in addition I've been digging into Marketing, Growth, Content, UX research and Operations topics during the recent years.
I can talk for days about best practises in Talent Acquisition and how People function is the essential driver for Growth, especially in tech start-ups. I believe strongly in the power of open, inclusive and data-informed company culture that enables people to take responsibility and work together toward shared goals. Feedback and psychological safety are the keys to team success!
I have two Master's degrees, I post regularly on Linkedin and my goal in life is to eventually accept that I don't have enough time to read all the books I want. My core values are learning, curiosity, clarity and kindness.
My personal vision is pretty wild:
i want to help 1000 people to get a good job.
