Pitch club is a brilliant idea. Bringing developers and the companies closer. It bridges the traditional system of recruiting.
While being informal (most of the pitches are set up in a modern kind of bar/club) in the way of interaction, it eases up a lot of things. The companies have a platform to offer their job openings in a precise manner (pitches) followed by personal one to one conversations with developers. The developers have the advantage/opportunity of meeting the representatives up close and personal. The atmosphere is perfect! Chilled out 🙂
“Struggle brings out the character in a man”
What started as an invite from Benjamin Geng to a pitch club event in Frankfurt, went on to be a very important step in my career transition.
I was recruited by IDA Frankfurt as a Software Developer. At the same time PwC was also interested in me. I joined Intelligent Data Analytics (IDA) first, as it was quick to set up an interview and also give me an offer.
At IDA my colleagues were warm and supported me in every way. The work atmosphere was friendly, open and flexible.
I left IDA to join PwC later on as PwC was still interested in my profile. I started with them in March 2018. And I was lucky to find an amazing team with wonderful colleagues in PwC.
Moving from Marburg to Berlin was quite a transition for me. Also an emotional one as Marburg was beautiful and so were the people! I feel quite lucky that my hard work paid off and here I was pitching for PwC in Munich as a representative.
I believe that my journey has completed a circle. Though I have a lot to achieve in life ahead, for the moment this was a milestone that I reached.
And Pitch club made it possible! I would love to contribute more to such events. Meet new people, share ideas. Pitch club is an amazing platform to do that.
I wish everyone at Pitch club all the very best, loads of love & luck. Keep spreading the good work. They connect businesses with people. And they do it quite intuitively! Cheers to the team 😉
