For this edition of our candidate interviews we spoke with Nicole Prinz, a freelance journalist in Berlin. She was previously matched & hired as a Content Manager through MoBerries and still holds this freelance position up until today. Nicole told us about her future job expectations, personal idols and how she feels about rejections.
Please describe yourself
I am a 26-year-old freelance journalist from Berlin. I would describe myself as a very open minded person – always ready to face new challenges with the overall goal to get better in what I am doing and to expand my skillset.
What challenges are you looking for in your next job?
In my new job I am looking for a good working environment, an interesting and hard-working team to become a part of and a challenging work environment to thrive in.
What do you think of MoBerries’ mission of killing the rejection?
Nobody likes to be rejected for a job they wanted to get into. Thus, seeing a referral with which I get the opportunity to find a new job, is such a nice gesture. Killing the rejection transforms a bad thing into something positive.
What is the thing you value most about MoBerries?
MoBerries gives you the opportunity to apply for a number of jobs at the same time in an incredibly short time frame. It spares you the time of creating numerous pages for your application and gives you more time to actually prepare for potential interviews and get to know the company you might be working for in the future. Furthermore, MoBerries might get you in touch with companies you haven’t had on your radar before so you are way more open towards new industries and opportunities.
Name 3 people you idolize and why?
Although I do not have three people I idolise, I do have one certain person from my family that I have always admired: My father. He is probably the most hard-working and dedicated person I have ever met. His work ethics and attitude is inspiring and has always motivated me to do my best to make him proud.
Would you rather give up shopping for six months or give up emoji for six months?
That is a very tough question. I think I would rather give up emojis for six months, although I do think that all message without emojis sound angry and way too serious.
What sets you apart as freelancer ?
I have worked for a variety of different companies for the last couple of years. That means that I have produced content for different industries, which makes me very flexible and versatile. I am also able to work under high pressure to meet deadlines and to finish my work as fast as possible to satisfy my clients.
