Julia's Brilliant Journey to Belfast & her new German Customer Service Job
Why Work Abroad?
''I became more open and more self confident''
After my training as a foreign language correspondent, I started looking for Jobs on all of the German speaking Job Boards I could find. However, ''In Germany, for me the future didn't look too bright because I couldn't find a job.'' It was because of that that I started looking for a job abroad, ''after I gained perspective I found some interesting jobs''. I found Careertrotter and they found me a German customer service job in Belfast.
How did Careertrotter Help you?
Thanks to Careertrotter, I now have the chance to work abroad and work with people from around the globe, its prettty exciting. In my job you needa lot of patience and sensitivity and I like that because in the end you get to be in contact with thers. My colleagues are really nice and friendly, even the teamleader is very open. ''I really like working here in Belfast''.
I was at ease and comfortable when it came to the interview because the guys in Careertrotter prepared me really well with some amazing tips and where there for me whenever I needed. It went so fast, I applied on the website and after just 1 day of the recrutiers rang me. ''The whole process only took a week. Then I had my new job. Everything went perfectly''
Careertrotter you get 5 out of 5 stars: I love it here.
What do you think about Belfast?
I really like the people most of all, when they go to get off the bus everyone always says thank you to the bus driver and I love that. Everyone is so friendly and open and the city is so diverse, beutiful and full of friendly people.
Any Advice for future candidates?
I would strongly recommend that you trying go to work abroad at least once. I did and now I have friends from various countries, speaking different languages with their own culture and traditions and that great.
I havn't met one unfriendly face and I am more open minded and confident thanks to this experience. I am not sure how long I will stay in Belfast all I can say is that I love it now and there is no end in sight!
