Details about the speaker Erica Burett
Vita: Erica Burett came to Germany 10 years ago to work as an Au Pair. A country she didn't know anybody and barely spoke the language. She financed her studies with cleaning jobs, and the first time she heard the word "Werkstudent" was from fellow students at the university. Without any connections, she worked her way up, bit by bit. Her first career breakthrough was at an investment bank, and today she works as a consultant at one of the world's largest consulting firms. Driven by the hardships she went through finding a job after university, she founded the first mentoring platform for international students and graduates in Germany, which has seen tremendous growth. Her posts on social media attract hundreds of thousands of views and her story has been featured in podcasts and newspapers such as Handelsblatt. She attributes her professional success to one thing: Authentically sharing her story on social media.
