Talking about work-life balance in an interview isn't taboo anymore. Or at least, it shouldn't be.
Just take it from Julia Kimmel, VP of People at RocketReach. We chatted all about work-life balance in our latest episode of Finding Balance, a video series in which I sit down with startup leaders across the region to see different perspectives on work-life balance and how people achieve it. This month, we're partnering with our friends at Boon to make these episodes come to life.
Julia knows firsthand how important work-life balance is for employees. As a recruiter, it's something she's always prepared to talk about with candidates. As an employee herself, Julia makes sure she finds time to do the things that give her energy — like surfing in New York City. Yep. That's right.
"It directly impacts how much energy I have and how happy I am in my day at work. And if I don't prioritize it, I feel way more burnt out, and I haven't had the amount of play and relaxing and letting go that I need to show up to work as my best self," she says.
