A suitable employee from abroad

There are some really complicated jobs nowadays. Not every job can be taught in every country. Therefore, it is natural that sometimes you have to look for representatives of a rare profession in another country. However, going to another country to work is not that easy. One may encounter many difficulties. 

Let’s see how Denis overcame these difficulties.

Denis is 43 years old. He was born and raised in Moldavia. Denis acquired a degree in civil engineering in Moldavia. He is particularly familiar with the art of building glass and metal façades. This is a very complex field that requires a lot of responsibility. Glass is a delicate material, after all. You have to know how to handle it.

Denis wants to put his skills to good use to build beautiful, modern houses. One day he sees an interesting job offer in a job portal. The offer has been made by an Estonian company. Denis applies for the job. He turns out to be the best applicant and is hired. So Denis comes to Estonia with his family. He has to obtain an Estonian residence permit for himself and his family. To do this, Denis has to communicate a lot with state authorities. His employer helps him. The employer calls the official and explains why Denis is the best employee for his company. The official understands that the Estonian company really needs Denis’ skills.

Then, a colleague of Denis starts putting him down. The colleague says that this job should be done by an Estonian. Denis’s manager defends him. He tells Denis’s colleagues that Denis was the best-qualified person to apply for the job. If their company wants to build the best and most beautiful houses, it needs builders with the best skills. Denis has studied more than the other applicants. He has successfully done some very complex work in the past. So he has more skills and knowledge than the other applicants. Moreover, Denis is kind enough to teach his colleagues here in Estonia. Thanks to Denis, the company can take on more complex jobs for which it gets paid more. This will also increase the salaries of other employees. Everyone is happy with that, right?

A person’s nationality or origin is irrelevant at work. The skills to do the job in question are the most important.
