Yoanna Popova, Talent Acquisition & Recruitment
"God will never give you more than you can handle."
As I have always had passion for foreign languages, I chose to learn French at the French High school in Varna. The decision that made most sense for me after my graduation was to move to France but I did not want to study there. After a lot of research, I found a great program at the New Bulgarian University giving the students the opportunity to study and work abroad at the same time.
I was at the hospitality sector and I describe myself as a friendly and hard-working person. I have worked in different hotels in Southern France for 7 years – from family ones to Château – at the front desk as a receptionist at first and then as a Front Office Manager. Even if I was having fun, the years were passing by, and I knew that one day I would come back to Bulgaria.
In the very beginning of 2020 this time came, and I returned to my home. This was one of the best decisions in my life. I gave myself a long break and took the time I needed to adapt again to my own country.My destiny led me to Pontica Solutions, and I started my new professional challenge in the Recruitment team.
As a recruiter, I help other professionals find fulfilling jobs, and I help clients find the talent they need to power their innovative businesses. The most rewarding part of the job is when you find the perfect position for your candidate, and it changes their life in a good way.
In my free time I travel with a good book and I like spending time with my family and friends. I love being in the nature as well as taking care of my little garden at home.
