She enjoys the challenge of matching a company with a suitable candidate and vice versa. With her extensive knowledge of the legal sector, she is looking forward to helping people take the next steps in their careers.
Pauline about YouConnect: "I initially came to YouConnect as a candidate for another job. After a few conversations, I was amazed by their genuinely personal, active-listener approach and professionalism. Because I was a candidate myself, I quickly noticed that YouConnect was dedicated to creating long-lasting professional relations. These first impressions convinced me to join YouConnect's team as a recruitment consultant. I already had a very exciting month, and I am looking forward to the future.”
YouConnect about Pauline: “Pauline left her adventure in the international music city of Vienna behind and enthusiastically started at YouConnect in early September. As a new colleague in the legal interim management team, she was drawn to the fast pace and the broad network of legal interim managers right from the start. As she was a lawyer before, her precision, strong communication and language skills are a real asset. Her entertaining personality, with a touch of dry humor, make it a pleasure to work with her every day.”
