For 32 years I had been working for the same employer. A construction company where my responsibilities as a mechanical carpenter included the creation of wooden window frames. Basically, I had my own ‘mini company’. I made a schedule and broadly determined my own working methods. Not thinking I would ever make such a big step again, I decided to do something completely different…
More than a resume
I remember it vividly. Hesitantly, I sat at the kitchen table wondering whether I would dare to take the step. I don’t share things like this easily, so I first tried to sort things out myself. Questions like ‘What am I leaving behind? And what ‘certainties’ am I losing?” shot through my mind.
Until I was suddenly invited to the ‘Ebusco Family day’. I was impressed by the factory and soon understood what the bus production process roughly looks like. After a nice conversation with a technical employee, I was convinced. I came home and immediately asked my daughter if she had some time to help me, as I hadn’t made a resume in over 30 years.
