Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Simona Atanasova, Recruitment Specialist

My Story

I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations in one of the top universities in Bulgaria. My career started with an internship in one of the biggest private national televisions in Bulgaria, where I spent a little more than a year. That was the time when I realized that communicating with people from different backgrounds was my pleasure at work. That’s how I made the decision to choose recruitment as a career. Firstly, I started working as a recruiter in a recruitment agency. After gaining experience for nearly a year, I wanted to be part of a company where I will have the opportunity to improve my skills. Now, I can say that this was the best career decision I have ever made. The founders, the colleagues, the start-up spirit… that’s all I was looking for. I can say that I’m happy to be part of such a colorful and cheerful team of outstanding professionals.

My Motivation

Working here at Pontica has not only immersed me in a friendly international environment, where the managers are supportive and encouraging but most importantly I met colleagues who have fast become my friends outside of the office.

Simona after work

My time after work is mostly spent at the gym or relaxing with a pen and paper in hand. I can say that one of my biggest passions is writing and some of my essays have even received international awards.
