I am a mechanical engineer of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and have worked for the Athens Metro, as well as an international group that undertook a project on the city’s highways. As all activity came to a halt due to the fiscal crisis, I had to seek employment abroad. An important opportunity in the Copenhagen Subway arose, and during the interviews, I applied everything I had learned in ROIEDU Global Skills. As both sessions were held via Skype, I had to present my digital portfolio online. Among three other candidates, I won the position when we were all asked for comments or questions; mine was: “as a cost-centre, what percentage do I occupy from the turnover that I will produce for your company?” Everyone was left deep in thought. I was in Copenhagen in a fortnight, in a colourful, multilingual environment and my own company-funded apartment. I already feel like a citizen of the world.”
