Working and Living in ireland
Ireland is technically the biggest IT hub in Europe. Some of the major players include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Paypal, AirBnB, Ericsson. Ireland is also a great start-up hub. You get to choose the type of company you want to be part of as the offer is quite varied.
My experience of moving from Bucharest to Ireland came in 2006, my husband received a job offer and we decided to go for it. Our son was only 2 years old at the time. The decision to relocate is never an easy one.
Some abandon the idea, and this is understandable as there are so many things to consider. Some can miss out on these opportunities through lack of information and help along the way.
The Fear of the Unknown
Moving abroad is a new unknown experience that brings you out of your comfort zone. You would like to have all the answers but it’s not always possible. You do all the research just to make sure you’re making the best decision and yet only by living there you actually get all the answers. It is the biggest exam we take in our lives because you get to put in practice everything you learnt and everything that your parents, the school and the system taught you. And somehow, you grow and you become wiser, you understand the power that you have. Being able to relocate to a whole new country shows you that you can adapt everywhere and that you can overcome the fear.
