"I wanted to work for a company with an excellent corporate culture. They quickly found a match for me: Xylos."
“I became part of Xylos last year thanks to the Young Graduates Program. It’s an intense three-month training that prepares freshly-graduated people for a smooth transition to corporate life."
“I was looking for a new challenge. I’d worked with several Xylos employees at my former workplace and from my experience with them, Xylos seemed a fun company with a friendly atmosphere."
“I’ve always had a soft spot for technology. After my previous job as a communication manager, I was looking forward to starting a new career in IT."
“No two days at work are the same, but I do have some standard tasks that make up my work routine. One of these tasks is looking for new candidates through different methods and channels."
“I studied Languages and Communication, but starter jobs in the field of communication are rare. If a job opening does pop up somewhere, it immediately gets swarmed by applicants. As a result, I had trouble finding work. But Xylos offered me a chance, and I took it."
It’s 2006. My partner and I are off to visit friends in Australia. At that moment, we had only just moved in together and both of us had just started working. These circumstances being what they were, our budget was rather limited. Luckily, thanks to our experience with the aviation industry, we were familiar with the concept of ‘standby flights’. The total cost for a return ticket from Amsterdam to Sydney: € 185 per person. Not bad, right? But the catch is the ‘standby’ part.
When I was in my twenties, my husband and I loved to go on cruises. During one cruise, I was pregnant with Alexis, so I ravaged every buffet on board… and believe me, there were many. Ten years ago, the kids were old enough to join us, so we booked a family cruise. They absolutely loved it, so ever since then, family cruises have become a yearly tradition.
