About Challenge Accepted Europe

About the initiative: we – Career Angels – have been providing a safe space for experienced managers and executives in this successful formula since April 2018. Due to CV-19, we adapted the format for the experience to be as effective and productive online, as it has been proven to be offline.

The underlying idea is to create a community for managers throughout Europe who have accepted the challenge of looking for a job (actively or passively), so that they can exchange their experiences, support each other through listening, words of encouragement, information and inspire each other.

The free online meetings are dedicated to specific career & job search topics and provide networking opportunities. Coming up:

Bias against *certain* candidates – advice on how to deal with it!

In the age of globalization, the melting pot of cultures brings a lot of unique opportunities but also reveals one unsettling fact about ourselves – we all have our (un)conscious biases.
