Nathalie Lovinsky started at Indeed in April 2015. She was the Stamford Black Inclusion Group (BIG) Secretary/Historian from January 2017, until she took over as site lead in July 2019. She currently works on the Employee Development team as a Learning Experience Facilitator.
How do you help people get jobs?
The Employee Development team sits under Human Resources and we like to say “we help people, who help people get jobs” through employee engagement and professional development. In my role, I facilitate the growth and development of Indeedians inside and outside the training room.
What do you love about your office?
The people! I will celebrate my 5-year Indeediversary in April, and it is amazing to see the growth of the Stamford office in size and also the growth of the people. Having the opportunity to see Indeedians grow in their careers is amazing to see.
What was your first job?
My first paid job was a babysitter at the age of 12. I have always loved children, and I babysat and nannied from high school through grad school.
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
People would be surprised to know that as a child I used to dance in a Haitian folklore dance group called “The Ebo Dancers”. We performed for years and I was the youngest member in the group.
Why is BIG important to you?
BIG is important to me because this is the first time I have ever been part of a large organized group where the majority of people look like me. BIG has provided a space where I can share and learn from others’ experiences, discuss diversity and cultural issues and share moments where we embrace our culture unapologetically.
Where was your favorite vacation?
South Africa! Thanks to our open PTO policy I was able to spend two weeks in South Africa last Spring. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience!
What’s the best thing about your Indeed team?
The passion we all share for helping Indeedians. We all play a small part in this large organization but we strive to make a big impact.
Are there any causes you’re particularly passionate about?
The Lupus Foundation of America is an organization I have been supporting since 2009. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect any major organ in the body. Anyone can develop Lupus but 9 out of 10 people with Lupus are women, and people of color are at higher risk for developing the disease. Next month, I will be going to the National Lupus Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C., to lobby and support the efforts of the organization.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
Words from my father, “if you are going to do something, do it right”. This is advice that I have carried with me throughout my life and career.
What do you consider your greatest Indeed achievement to date?
My greatest accomplishment was not only getting a job at Indeed but finding a career! I appreciate the opportunities I have had through internal mobility to work my way into a field where I truly love what I do and know that I will continue to do as a career for many years to come.
