Learn about her story in this article.
Our Relocation Consultant Martin was recently promoted to the position of a PRO(fessional) at Foreigners. We caught up with him at the Brno office over a cup of coffee to discuss his career growth, how he’s survived and thrived during the pandemic, his favorite part of working with people, and what he enjoys doing in his free time.
Life throws us many challenges to the point where living can sometimes feel like a Sysiphian boulder we are rolling up a hill for eternity. But the truth is different. Often, all that’s staying in our way is ourselves. What’s important is that we don’t back down from a challenge and that we don’t give up. If you persevere and focus on finding new ways of succeeding, you will, ultimately, find your way up. And that’s exactly what we did last spring when COVID-19 hit Czechia.
