Career challenge

For Iwona the biggest challenge is to keep candidates motivated to stay in the process, even though chances might be little for the current assignment. But sometimes the tiniest chances become the biggest wins. And that is what Iwona inspires at the same time – creating a network of candidates you built great and long-lasting relationships with.


In her professional life, Ilona lives by the motto: “You must first find your limits, before you can exceed them.”
