From London to Holland: Invading Holland
20 June, 2011 10:07
My name is Stuart. I’m an Englishman from London and I’ve been living in Holland since 2001.
1. Why did you move abroad?
My move abroad was not exactly planned. In fact, in many ways it was quite by accident . I had no plans to move to Holland. I didn’t even have any plans to leave London but after a year of being out of college and still trying to find a job I came across a cryptic job advertisement that intrigued me. It had no address, no phone number. All it had was an email address. It was very mysterious but I thought I would apply anyway even though I was aware that it could lead to some kind of fake office interview/black market organ harvesting situation.
When I received a reply a few days later there were two surprises. (1) At no point did they enquire about the condition of my internal organs and (2) they were offering to pay for my flight to the interview location in Amsterdam… Holland. As you might have guessed until that point I had (maybe rather foolishly) not even considered that the job might be in another country.
