Get to Know InLoox: Annalena - Working Student Marketing at InLoox Headquarters in MunichKathrin Jungwirth, Monday 30 August 2021 | Reading time: 5 min.
Annalena joined InLoox in early 2020 as a working student for content & cocial media management. In the marketing team, she is responsible for our InLoox blog. Here she researches and creates interesting content for our readers every week. Additionally, she supports the team on social media and SEO matters. In this article, you will find out what it is like to work as a working student at InLoox and which home office trick has proven successful for her.
1. What motivated you to apply at InLoox?
Towards the end of my studies, I was looking for a suitable working student job that I could do alongside my bachelor writing phase. Having gained experience in both small start-ups and large companies, I was now looking for the best of both worlds. InLoox immediately appealed to me because of the familiar atmosphere and the opportunity to learn a lot in small teams and to quickly get involved with independent tasks. Finally, I was convinced by the testimonial of my predecessor, who wrote about her exciting workday as a working student in the InLoox marketing team.
2. What is your favorite InLoox feature?
My favorite feature is the InLoox Kanban board. Here I keep a good track of my personal tasks or I can collect new topic ideas for the blog in a nice view and sort them thematically. The InLoox Kanban is very clear, intuitive and therefore super easy to handle.
3. Which project would you like to see accelerated?
The project I would like to see accelerated is the completion of the new multifunctional arena in the Olympic Park in Munich. From a young age, I regularly go to the games of the Munich ice hockey team with my family. The old arena (still from the 1972 Olympics) is slowly becoming obsolete and I'm already looking forward to the first game in the new and state-of-the-art SAP Garden.
4. What profession did you want to pursue as a child?
When I was a kid, I wanted to become an actress or work as an animal trainer for the movies, teaching dogs, horses or other animals tricks for cool movie stunts. In general, animals fascinate me to this day, only the low salary prospects in this field made me change my mind.
5. Who or what would you like to be for a day?
I would love to swap places with one of my cats for a day. Do nothing all day, be lazy, play, cuddle, eat and be loved unconditionally for it.
6. What is your life motto?
Don’t be upsetti just eat some spaghetti!
7. What is your favorite personal project?
About two years ago I developed a small passion for houseplants. During the Corona period, this trend became one of the popular hobbies of 2020, and I also developed a small urban jungle over time. It's a lot of fun to learn about the different types of plants and how to care for them. But the most beautiful moment is when you discover a new leaf on a plant.
8. What do you like to do most when you are not writing the InLoox blog?
In my free time you can probably meet me in a nice café in Munich, at the dog lake with our family dog, on my bike, in the thrift store or with a book in the park. At home I cook a lot and with pleasure or take care of all my plants.
10. What's your work from home life hack?
Every now and then, the boundaries between work and private life become blurred, so that I sometimes find it difficult to adjust to the new workday, especially in the morning. So I sometimes try to outsmart myself in the morning. Instead of sleepily eating breakfast at my desk after getting up, I start the day with a walk to the bakery and fake my way to work. This way I get my head clear in the morning, just like I do on the ride to the office, and can then rush into work with a clear head.
11. Three things you love about working from home.
- freshly cooked lunch
- sleeping in longer
- that the end of work begins as soon as the laptop is closed
12. What do you miss most about office life?
Of course, the personal conversations you have with colleagues. The daily meeting via Teams does not provide the right space for the many little anecdotes from personal and everyday life and the casual conversations.
