"Make yourself visible" with Tamara Patera

Career Returners Podcast Series 2 – Episode #1

7 September 2022

Tamara Patera is an experienced Equity Market professional. Italian-born and raised in Zurich, Tamara spent her career travelling extensively across Europe, enjoying using her language skills and working across different cultures.

Based in Paris since 2007, Tamara continued to work in London and Paris for a number of years before taking a 7-year career break to raise her 2 children. She credits that time as one that she cherishes, as well as being one where she developed many transferable skills. 

In our conversation, Tamara talks about the power of networks and their contribution to her professional success throughout her career, and particularly their pivotal role in her successful return to work in 2020.  “Make yourself visible if you know you want to go back to work…I think it’s important to be quite strategic about it and tell people otherwise they won’t be thinking of you…for opportunities”

Hear how Tamara approached her return, developed a proactive and positive mindset, and set herself regular goals to keep moving forward in her search.
