Nicole is Loving her new German Sales Job in the Netherlands
Why Work Abroad?
I am originally from Germany but the urge to go abroad was always there – I have spent a good chunk of my life working abroad and I love it, some places more than others. Nearly 10 years in Spain, a year in Miami to near 5 years in Ireland. I’m a doer – when something is in my mind, I just do it and I am so glad I did. All my experiences abroad have made me who I am today – they are experiences you take with you for life. In fact I have been abroad so much that when I go back to Germany I don’t feel German, it’s weird.
How did Careertrotter help you?
Anneloes was my recruiter – she was so lovely and really nice – after my application, she called me almost immediately to see what it was I was looking for.
When she told me about this German Sales job in the Netherlands, I wanted to go for it straight away. Anneloes helped me every step of the way. She helped me prepare for interviews and guided me through the process.
Each time I called (I call a lot) she was so lovely and always had an update for me. I haven’t had a lot of experience with recruiters but with Anneloes it was amazing – she really set the bar.
Careertrotter you get 5 out of 5 – I got the job, what more can you ask for – great preparation and support from Careertrotter. Whenever I rang I might not have gotten through to Anneloes straight away so I got to talk with the team and they were lovely as well. Anneloes I am very happy here thank you for your help.
What do you think of the Netherlands?
It’s really nice here I am really happy. Everything I could need is only minutes away, the people are lovely and the surroundings are beautiful. The Netherlands is a lovely place to live and to work.
Advice for Future Trotters?
I would really recommend being open minded – anywhere you go – be open minded. Try to learn the language and the culture because I think this is the best way to adapt.
If you can do this, you really will enjoy the ride – doesn’t matter where you go – you get to bring these experiences with you for life.
