Welcome Michaela to Digital Source



Welcome to Michaela, new recruitment consultant at Digital Source!

We are glad to count her in our team. We wanted to know more about her. 


1- What is your role and how did you get there?

My role is rookie recruitment consultant, working and specializing with JavaScript and Ruby on Rails Developers. I applied for the role as  I was looking to move back to Amsterdam, and I had previously interned with a recruitment company in Dubai. I was intrigued by it so I applied with Digital Source and here I am!


2- Who are you on a Monday morning?

I like to think I’m not so bad on a Monday morning after a couple of cups of coffee but I’m probably not as cheery as I think I am. (laughs)

I think it depends on the night before but I think that I’m an okay person on a Monday morning.


3- What makes you get up in the morning?

That’s the alarm clock that wakes me up in the morning. (laughs)

In terms of motivation, I think it is knowing that I’ll be able to learn new things that day that I didn't know the day before.


4- What company values match with you?

I think the main thing is transparency that matches with my personal values. If everything is transparent from the beginning, I think it’ll run a lot smoother.


5- What’s the best advice you would give to someone starting in recruitment?

Ask questions all the time and act confident, even if you might not be. Fake it till you make it.

If you act like you are confident, you’ll probably gain confidence over time. So ask questions whenever you’re unsure and act confident would be my main two pieces of advice.


6- When you’re not at work, what do you like to do?

I  would say I watch a lot of Netflix and enjoy cooking.

I usually do the two at the same time with the laptop on the counter while cooking something tasty.
