In our “Careers at KiKxxl” series, we introduce you to Demet today. She has been part of our team for half her life. Her journey at KiKxxl began as a customer advisor and eventually led her to applicant management. Find out more about her story in the interview:
How did you come to work for KiKxxl?
After my training as a lawyer and notary’s assistant, I was looking for a job when I heard that a new company called KiKtel was opening (KiKxxl was still called that back then!). I initially completed a three-month internship there, which was actually only intended as a temporary solution. However, after just a few weeks, our Managing Director Andreas offered me a permanent position. That was in 1999 – and now I’ve been here half my life!
What was your career like?
I started out as a customer advisor and then worked as a team assistant for a short time. When the idea of setting up an applicant management system came up, I joined it. I was the second member of the team and there are now eight of us. Today, I’m the longest-standing member of the applicant team!
What are your tasks?
I look through the applications and conduct the initial interviews with the applicants. I record all the important data and check whether the person is suitable for our team and, if so, for which project. After so many years in this role, I have developed a good sense of whether someone is a good fit for us. I really enjoy this work because I can approach applicants on a personal level and offer them a chance by inviting them to interviews.
What do you enjoy most and what makes KiKxxl special for you?
Simply everything, I feel completely at ease. The working atmosphere is great and I also get on really well with my colleagues. I’m such a crazy person and everyone knows what makes me tick and picks me up when I’m in a bad mood. It really is a great team with great team spirit. I’ve been here for almost 25 years and KiKxxl is just like my family. I love coming here every day, everyone here is very special. When you enter the KiKxxl premises, something happens to you, there’s a very special energy here.
