Initieel solliciteerde ik voor de vacature van loodgieter, maar kreeg uiteindelijk een veel betere job voorgesteld.
Werken in een fijne werkomgeving was mijn belangrijkste criteria. Job Talent wist deze met succes in te vullen.
Wat startte als een tijdelijke vervanging, groeide uit tot een vast contract. Wie had dat gedacht, bedankt Job Talent!
Job Talent zorgde voor een aangename onboarding waardoor ik me meteen ‘part of the team’ voelde. Daar ben ik hun nog steeds dankbaar voor.
