Pascal Loves His Dutch IT Support Job in Kharismatic Krakow
Why Work Abroad?
Well after having worked in South Africa for nearly a year, I wanted to work abroad somewhere new, but this time I wanted something a little closer to home. The reason being that travelling the world is cool and all but not so easy to handle especially if you have family and friends that you love and miss.
I had heard that Krakow in Poland is a beautiful place so obviously, I had to check it out. I love to travel and Poland is a big country so I am sure there will be enough for me to do there. Also, working for an international company really stands out on my CV, that's truly a plus.
How did Careertrotter help you?
Careertrotter helped me a lot, after registering and uploading my CV I got a call just 2 hours later - Celine was my recruiter in Careertrotter and she helped me out a lot, she was clear and covered everything you could think of to help me get prepared.
Most of the work you do yourself, but without Celine, it would have been nearly impossible to find a Dutch-speaking job abroad.
Careertrotter you get 5 out of 5: I want to give you a 10 but I can only go to 5.
You guys are so helpful, and you knew exactly what I needed and you always kept in contact with me to let me know what was going on.
I have been in Krakow for a while now and Celine still pops me a call or an email every now and then to see how I am getting on, I have never had this with any other company so well done guys.
What do you think about Krakow?
Krakow is so beautiful! (and I am not just talking about the girls, they are also very beautiful). In the city, all you need is there and they are all close together so you don't need to walk far for anything. I have actually found a girlfriend here and I am really enjoying life. The architecture, the people, the culture - Poland is truly a beautiful place to be.
Pascal has a great Flickr account where he has allowed us to share some of the gorgeous images he has taken of Krakow
Advice for future Trotters:
If you are thinking of working abroad: Just do it! there are nothing to lose, only amazing things to gain. I did and now I am in Poland and have already learned some of basic Polish for everyday living like Piwo = beer, they do speak English here, well the younger generations do.
Finally, just enjoy your time abroad, you will have a great time for sure.
