I Am a Freelancer

Living in a foreign country is not really that easy, especially if you don't know the language very well. Getting a job takes some time since you need first to hurdle the language barrier. While trying to improve my German, I am currently doing some online freelance jobs, most of them in the field of administrative assistance. Little did I know that an opportunity to improve my German and work in a realy technical environment at the same time will come way.

October 2010. It was initially an invitation to propose for a job, letting the client know what I could do and what my qualifications were. Since I didn't hear from them since then, I thought the job is no longer available.

January 2012. I got an email from the client, asking me if I was still interested. I called them up and got an appointment for an interview.

February 2012. I got the job and would only need to secure my work permit so I can start working with them as soon as possible.

I will not reveal yet which company it is since I didn't get my work permit yet but the business is basically all about pumps and dosing systems. I guess I will be learning more about many different kinds of pumps, coolant pumps included, when I begin working.

Who would have thought that it is possible to get such a job while doing freelance work? It really is not bad being a freelancer. You can decide how long you want to work and when you want to work. The pay may not be so big and not so stable compared to a full-time job but it is perfect for my situation. And who knows? Other good opportunities are yet to come. It just takes patience and diligence. Maybe I just got lucky? Still, I am very thankful!
