Looking for your own path
There are times when even qualifications and experience will not help you find a job. A slip? A failure? Or maybe just bad luck? It’s not always worth analyzing the cause. One thing is certain: it’s up to you whether a difficult experience pushes you into action or cuts you down. The story of Rafał Dragon from Tarnowskie Góry shows that one must not give up.
After graduating from technical school, I took a variety of jobs, gaining knowledge and skills primarily through practice. I usually worked as a warehouseman, including at an electronics store. One day I got an interesting job offer which I really wanted to take. So I gave my notice. It quickly became apparent that the new proposal didn’t work out, and my old position was already taken. This left me with nothing. Searching for a new job, all I c ould find were positions with a contract of mandate or task-specific contract. I needed stability and financial security, so I didn’t want any of these contracts.
After several months, I finally found the perfect offer. Dental Tree company needed a person responsible for organizing the warehouse and online store support. I didn’t have any second thoughts. I turned to the employment office in Tarnowskie Góry for help. Thanks to participation in the project, I got employed on an intervention basis.
Today, I am primarily involved in operating forklifts, receiving deliveries, transporting products and keeping the entire facility running smoothly. The commitment of the team, and my bosses, makes the company grow fast, which makes the prognosis for the future optimistic. I have gained stable employment and I can use my knowledge and experience in my job. I feel like I’ve found my place for the long haul.
So if someone is in doub t, unable to find their own path, then they should definitely use help offered by such projects. This is a huge convenience that often determines how quickly we find a job that meets our expectations.
