How to approach a job search after a 2 year sabbatical?

Asked on August 22, 2018 by an applicant

kununu, kununu US

Answer #1 from November 2, 2018 by kununu

kununu US

Thanks for your question! That's quite a broad question and the answer really depends on: - what job role or career path you're trying to get into after that 2 year sabbatical - what was the reason behind the sabbatical. For instance, was it related to personal development / discovery, health, family emergency, family? - Did you do any professional or skills development during that time that might relate to the job or career path you're now pursuing? These are the things that you should ask yourself, and that you should also be prepared to explain to hiring managers and people you network with now as you pick up your job search. As for specific approach to the job search given your sabbatical, here are some tips: - be honest with yourself about the type of role you'd be interested in in doing right now and the skills you can currently offer to an employer - keep an open mind, as the job market for the career you're interested in might be a bit different than it was 2 years ago - use free job search sites like Google and LinkedIn to sort through different job openings and to explore the different types of opportunities that are available out there if you're not sure what direction to go - make sure to do research on any company that you apply to (such as right here on kununu) so that you understand who they are and whether the company would be a good fit for you.

Asked on May 16, 2018 by an applicant

kununu US, Director of Customer Success

Thank you for your interest in our Customer Success team. The Customer Success Associate role has been filled.

Answer as an employer

Cusromer Success is a highly valued sales and services role at my company. How do you at Kununu proactively engage customers, prospects and partners to engage customer success as a pivot to overall revenue growth? I work at a security company where we, as customer success managers, upsell and cross sell through our platform. If I were to work here at Kununu would I have that ability to sell to my customer base. If so I would be highly interested.

Jean Lethuillier, Director of Customer Success, kununu US

Answer #1 from March 21, 2018 by Jean Lethuillier

kununu US, Director of Customer Success

Thank you for your interest in our Customer Success team! The mission of the Customer Success team is to ensure high customer satisfaction, advocacy, and retention. We do this by driving product adoption, proactive engagement, and helping the customer realize the value of kununu. The reason we focus on those areas is because renewals, to us, is not a task, but a milestone. In other words, our Customer Success Managers are responsible for renewals, with the renewal journey starting the second a customer interacts with the team. In terms of upselling, our CSMs are encouraged to upsell based on the genuine need of a customer.

Answer #2 from May 11, 2018 by an applicant

Do you have an example of a current customer you work with and how you interact with them? What are you best practices? Also, has Customer Success successfully closed an upsell deal with a current customer? What and how did you sell to them?

Jean Lethuillier, Director of Customer Success, kununu US

Answer #3 from May 16, 2018 by Jean Lethuillier

kununu US, Director of Customer Success

What a great question! Every customer is a little different so we tailor our Customer Success approach for each customer by understanding what they want to achieve with kununu. For example, one of our current customers is looking to create a unique employer brand. We sat down with this customer to draw up an action plan and agreed on the milestones we will hit together in the next year. It has been a few months, and we are seeing progress already! In terms of upselling, our CSMs are encouraged to upsell based on the genuine need of a customer.

why is your database not current regarding Boston startups

Asked on March 9, 2018 by a freelancer

kununu, kununu US

Answer #1 from March 9, 2018 by kununu

kununu US

Thanks for your question! Our database includes any company that has at least 1 review from a former employee, current employee or applicant, so by that standard it is current. I do get the point of your question though, which is that it'd be great to have all companies you'd like to learn about on kununu. We are working on it! :) Please let me know if that doesn't answer your question.

kununu US, Sales

That is very true! You have a good source. The event was great. All 4 offices(Boston, Vienna, Porto, Berlin) of kununu were there. We talked about our core values, our strategies for growth, and how we are going to help people become HAPPIER in the Work-Life by providing "Workplace insights that matter."

Sounds nice!

What's working in the Boston office like? What do you do to collaborate with your counterparts in Austria?

Asked on January 23, 2018 by an applicant

Answer #1 from January 26, 2018 by a current employee

Working in Boston is awesome - it's even cooler that we get to integrate with our counterparts in Austria on a daily basis. We have an internal chat channel where we can share ideas and support each other! Sometimes European offices travel to Boston and vise versa!

Answer #2 from January 26, 2018 by a current employee

Working in the Boston office is great! Awesome location in an up-and-coming area, cool and cozy office space. We work and move fast like a small startup, but with the foundation and support of our Austria counterparts (and beyond). When it comes to collaborating, our Boston team connects with our Vienna team multiple times per month as a large group with video conferencing, and even more frequently in smaller groups on specific global projects. Individual team members from both locations fly out to visit each other on a regular basis and we also communicate with each other pretty much daily on Slack :)

How does kununu celebrate the Holiday season?

Asked on December 5, 2017 by a working student

Answer #1 from December 5, 2017 by a current employee

We have a number of people in the office who are Christmas junkies (but usually every holiday is well celebrated), so we've planned an awesome off-site party for the team and their significant others and will also be doing a secret santa at the office as well. We really exemplify the work hard, play hard spirit and I know I appreciate the opportunity to have some fun with my co-workers.

What's the company culture?

Asked on September 29, 2017 by an anonymous user

Lauren, Customer Success, kununu US

Answer #1 from October 3, 2017 by Lauren

kununu US, Customer Success

We work together to overcome obstacles and challenge ourselves to make ingenious improvements. Our team has a lot of fun along the way with awesome team events. The kununu office is above a Craft Beer Cellar... need I say more?

Answer #2 from October 4, 2017 by a current employee

The culture here has a 'start-up' feel to it - if someone has too much work on their plate, someone else usually jumps in to give a lending hand. I'm also a big fan of the Friday catered lunches and basketball on Tuesday nights.

Answer #3 from November 9, 2017 by a current employee

I really appreciate that I'm able to collaborate with my whole team. You're never alone and you're encouraged to speak up and ask for help if you really need it. The whole office really focuses on exemplifying our core goals and I love that we are all open minded and making ingenious improvements weekly.
