Alicja studied Sociology and Human Resources, and for over 12 years worked as an international recruiter, matching multilingual professionals with suitable jobs across Europe. She continues to do so in her role with Learn International – she tirelessly sources exceptional host companies and secures exciting internships for the students on our programmes.
She is the most sociable introvert you’ll ever meet. Who would guess that despite her (slightly overwhelming) talkativeness and (at times challenging) witty sense of humour, her favourite free time activity is sitting at the top of a mountain somewhere in Italy or Spain and listening to the wind … or lying on a sofa, alone (i.e. with her cats), with a bucket of Ben & Jerry’s and watching Netflix … same thing, right?
Even though she has to recharge from time to time from social interactions, people in all shapes, forms and states are her favourite thing. She loves to observe, interact, exchange and learn. Whether it’s supporting people with disabilities in their everyday challenges (when she worked as an assistant in a non-profit), helping professionals secure a life-changing job (in her past life as a recruiter), or accompanying students on their educational path and discovering their professional strengths – what gives her the biggest satisfaction is knowing that what she does has the positive influence on someone else’s here and now.
