The last time she applied for a job, she got invited to 20 job interviews, which led to three job offers. Cathelijn van Haaren does a lot of great work for the The Talent Institute (one of the schools BSSA teamed up with): teaching, recruitment of students, all sorts of digital marketing and sales activities. She has sunken her teeth in many things before, such as operating as junior marketer and PR manager and fulfilling the position as community events manager at large companies. An impressive resume, which makes it hard to believe she is only 26, and finished her masters so little time ago. How did she get all these great jobs? Well: she knows how to stand out – she knows how to present herself – she knows what sh*t work – she knows how to apply for a job and get hired. As her current boss, Roderik Hageman says: ‘I did not even meet her, but by receiving her email, I knew that I wanted her to work for me no matter what.’
So pay attention all you jobseekers out there!
