2010 Cheryl joined Austrian Airlines and worked there as a Passenger Agent. During her studies, she was able to participate in a course called “Personalmanagement”. This is when her Human Resource journey began.
She started to increase great interest in people management, especially recruiting. “I liked the idea of getting together with the department head/manager to scout the best candidates for the particular position – there are various ways to find the most potential candidates and these different ways awoke my attention”. From there on, she knew she will pursue a Master’s Degree in HR, which she did. After her Bachelor’s degree, she decided to change department and pursue her dream gaining experience in HR. As an HR Assistant, she gained insight into the HR world. However, her biggest dream was to become a Recruiter one day but this dream couldn’t be fulfilled therefore she decided to leave Austrian Airlines after almost 8 years. She came across Speedinvest-Heroes and found the combination of startup and HR promising, especially the startup part as she has never worked for a startup company before.
As an HR Assistant Cheryl supports the Heroes team in day-to-day operations as well as in all administrative matters which includes support regarding research and recruiting processes, coordinating job interviews, conducting pre-screening interviews as well as handling small projects in self-responsibility.
“I consider Speedinvest-Heroes as a great school. If you are really interested in Human Resource that is the place to go. Within almost 6 months working for Speedinvest-Heroes, I have obtained rich know-how in terms of Recruiting.”
In her free time, Cheryl enjoys doing sport, especially sprints and running 5.1K. However, Sport isn’t her only excitement, she also ensures spending quality time with her family and friends. After her graduation, she has started to dedicate herself to reading and playing guitar again.
