Ilya has found a Great Russian IT Job - Cork
Ilya is a Russian native speaker who grew up in Latvia. After a long time of living and working there, he felt it was time for a change and decided Ireland is where he'll look. This is his story.
Why Work abroad?
I am originally from Latvia and I was looking for a new multilingual job for about 6 months. I was in contact with many different recruitment agencies in my country but I was not interested in the jobs that they had on offer.
I was really interested to work abroad and to experience a new culture somewhere else. Additionally, I worked at my previous job for 8 years and I needed a change, I also wanted to earn more money.
Now I am working as Russian IT Support Representative in Cork, and I am really happy about it! When working and in my free time, I usually speak either English or Russian; it depends on the people you are with and hanging out with.
How did Careertrotter help you?
I posted my CV on one of the international job boards, and then later on my Careertrotter got in touch with me. He gave me a great advice and was always there for me during the entire recruitment process.
What do you think about Cork, Ireland?
Irish people are extremely friendly, and the landscape is just breath-taking. Ireland is a lovely country to work and live in.
My advice to other Trotters before they go to work abroad:
When moving abroad don’t be afraid to open up to new people! I know it is hard but it is the only way you will meet new people in the area you are moving too.
I would recommend Careertrotter to any one of my multilingual friends or family. They helped me to get this job abroad and I would refer to Careertrotter again when I want to move abroad in the future.
