The team of AT BEST RECRUITERS LTD prepared a short interview with Hayri Karamutev in order to get at least a little touch on his life and work in the Netherlands.
How long have you been in the Netherlands and how do you feel?
I have been in the Netherlands for almost one year. Even though I am abroad, the environment and atmosphere in which I work and live predisposes me to feel great.
What is your job?
I work as an electrician in housing construction. The work is related to the overall implementation of an electrical project, from wiring to connection and the last luminaire. Despite the fact that I am a foreigner, I get the opportunity to deal with responsible tasks in various parts of the project, along with my colleagues from the Netherlands.
How do you evaluate your achievements so far? Are you happy with yourself?
Upon arrival in the Netherlands, each new electrician undergoes a one-week training, after which the candidate receives a certificate for successfully passing a practical exam. An exam for safe working conditions is also taken. In the beginning I had to make more efforts to acquire the necessary practical skills, but over time the results were obvious. In Bulgaria I also worked as a designer and electrician, but here in the Netherlands the way of performing the installations is completely different. The work is time consuming, but I am glad to be part of such a big project and the feeling of satisfaction is great when you see it realized.
Tell us the most ridiculous (funny, absurd) event you have encountered.
Our work required us to use special clothing and special safety shoes, but one of our colleagues had come to work with wooden shoes. You don’t see a person wearing wooden shoes every day.
And the most difficult?
The most difficult period was the onset of the corona-virus. I had taken a ticket for March 13th and was traveling to the airport when I was told that Bulgaria had declared a state of emergency and was closing its borders, then I was not sure if I would be able to return home. Fortunately, the flight was not postponed, but upon arrival in Bulgaria I was placed under a 14-day quarantine.
What lessons did you learn here? What did you learn here?
I came to the Netherlands all by myself, I didn’t know if I would be able to cope with the exams, if I would overcome the culture shock, if I would work with my colleagues, but I still took a risk and I am happy with the risk. There is nothing scary about getting out of your comfort zone. I met a lot of people, made some very good friendships and got a very good practical and life experience that I would hardly have had if I hadn’t taken the risk. One must always have a goal and strive for it. Despite the fact that I am already firmly on my feet in the Netherlands, I always feel nostalgia for Bulgaria and I am waiting for the moment when I will come back home again.
Do you feel more capable? Did you gain more confidence in yourself and at work?
With each new day I learn something new, something useful both at work and in life. I feel confident that I can pass on what I have learned to new colleagues after me, and why not show something from me to more experienced colleagues. With each new project I get more and more responsibilities and more freedom of action. My colleagues and I work like a well-oiled machine and I can say that we are a cohesive team.
What do you dream about?
I want one day to go back to a different Bulgaria, where human work is really appreciated, as well as the due respect and trust. Bulgaria, where I can feel calm and free from the tense everyday life.
What is the kindest thing a colleague has done for you?
Many colleagues and I became friends, and I am often invited to dinners or barbecues with their families. I am grateful to people for being so friendly with me, even though I am a foreigner.
Other if you want to share
I would like to thank Ms. Bozhkova and her entire team for the support and responsiveness they give me throughout my stay abroad.
