Max grew up in Arnhem, a city with a population of around 160.000 in the East of The Netherlands. Curiously, it is also the city where FourVision’s head office is located. Right after finishing high school, he moved south to Nijmegen, a similar sized city, where he went to college.
Max graduated from Communication studies in 2020. And, according to him, Marketing was always the most interesting subject of the whole degree. A sign of what’s to come?
In his spare time, Max likes to listen to music, meet with friends, go out, listen to podcasts, hit the gym, reading books and spend time with his family. “I can’t wait for the barbecue season to start again so I can go to the beach with friends and a pocket sized BBQ!”, he says.
Max started his professional career as an intern at a digital marketing agency. There, he got a sneak peek of the world of Digital Marketing which got him very excited. So much so, that after his internship, he kept working there as a part time job next to his studies! After almost two years at that agency, he moved to an Online Marketing Specialist position at FourVision while finishing his studies. A role that he still partly holds to this day.
From his experiences, Max especially liked the variety of tasks assigned to him. Working for an agency meant a large amount of customers, with different Online Marketing needs to fulfil, on a monthly basis. Besides, the personal contact with different customers and colleagues counts as something valuable for him within a job. “Meeting new people and interact with them still excites me.”, Max adds.
Position at FourVision
At FourVision, Max holds two roles. As Online Marketing Specialist he works together with the marketing team, helping with the daily content creation and periodic campaigns. In his role as Implementation Consultant for the Talent Experience Platform of Phenom, Max helps customers with their transition to the Phenom Recruitment Platform. This is a personalized career site based on artificial intelligence. It helps organizations attract the best fitting candidate for their vacancies.
Max believes that his marketing and communications experience helps with clear and straightforward communication with customers in numerous projects. In addition to this, the technical knowledge that he acquired about websites and systems as Online Marketing Specialist is a great added value to his role of Implementation Consultant.
Looking ahead, Max is most eager to work in new and exciting projects with the Phenom platform. In addition to this, he looks forward to go back to the office again.
“I like the international culture within FourVision because it brings a lot of different people together from all around the world. I cannot wait meet the new FourVision employees in person and get everyone together again!”
