An Interview with Aruna Mandulapalli, Climate People's New Senior Recruiter
Please provide a brief summary of your professional background:
I am a passionate recruiter and love narrating stories of my clients and candidates. I have recruited for several industries such as Technology, Utilities, Biotechnology, Medical Diagnostics, Healthcare, Research, and Financial Services.
Why do you want to work in climate tech?
I care deeply about the Climate. My Climate journey started close to 13 years ago when I was introduced to biodegradable cleaning products made of corn and coconut. I have since tried to do my share to keep my home and surroundings climate-friendly. Thanks to Climate People I now have this opportunity to use my professional skills to go beyond my personal life and make a greater impact.
Why did you choose to work for Climate People? What excites you about the role?:
I have known about Climate People since its inception. The question was never about “why” but “when” I would join. I believe that Climate People is at a place where I could not consciously delay this any longer. I am extremely proud of what Brendan has built so far and excited about combining my passion for climate and recruiting and executing the vision of the company.
