Introducing our first star…
Alex Maxwell is up in our new Client Spotlight Series. This series was inspired by the many amazing people our team has had the privilege of working with over the years – it is my absolute pleasure to have Dr. Alex Maxwell as the first!
Wow, where do I even start sharing this amazing human with you? Though her accent will fool you into thinking she’s from the U.S. (yes, I am a U.S. native and saying this with absolutely no pause), Alex is from Russia. After doing some cultural exchange programs in the states, Alex decided at around 20 that she wanted to emigrate.
Alex’s personal experiences are what drew her to her current position in Berlin at CIEE (Council On International Education Exchange). Alex’s mission is to make connections and place eager U.S. university students into internships here in Berlin. And though she hasn’t even been here that long, she’s already placed 100+ students since late winter/early spring 2022.
This is exactly where we want to come in and help. Our clientele is precisely the kind of people Alex looks to connect with for her job. So, are you someone who:
- is a not-so-recent newcomer to Berlin?
- knows what it’s like to try and establish a business or a life or a social network here?
- is an entrepreneur?
- has a startup or works for a startup or medium-sized company?
- could use help on innovative projects?
- could be interested in a cost-free and eager intern for a short-term project?
I’m trying to reach folks that are looking for cost-free reliable intern help on short-term projects…
“That range spans anything from… a student who has literally worked on rockets before and can help you test your medical devices – because they study materials/material engineering – all the way to someone who… has been doing dance and poetry performances in various contexts, has run a theater for 40 years, and now decided to… to switch into a new sphere and… I don’t know, pursue a photography degree and they’re looking to gain hands-on experience.”
Dinging a few bells? Then have a chat with Alex!
“What I’m looking to do is… help establish those symbiotic relationships between relatively established people in industries, sometimes very established, sometimes just starting out, and folks that are just coming out of the classroom and are looking for a real-world world experience.”
If you want to get in touch with Alex, you can connect with her here on Linkedin.
Let’s get to the good stuff
Ok, now that we did our due diligence to connect you for professional reasons, Alex has some insight for others immigrating or thinking about immigrating to Berlin… stay tuned for part 2!
