Christina Zehnder
Recruiting Consultant

I joined Burda in Munich back in 2005 and am still experiencing new things all the time. The company’s versatility and innovative strength are truly impressive. I am given the freedom to focus my recruiting work as I wish and to pursue my personal development. At the moment, I am responsible for the entire trainee selection process and support candidates as they attend the Assessment Center, where authenticity and variety prove particularly valuable.
