From The Hague to the Black Forest: Jordy Pronk’s Seamless Career Transition with Hittech Prontor
29-year-old Jordy Pronk needed a new challenge in his life, and he couldn’t find it in his hometown, The Hague. He asked his Hittech Prontor colleagues in Germany if he could make a career switch to their office in the beautiful Black Forest. ‘No problem,’ they said, so Jordy and his girlfriend packed their bags and moved into a little town near Bad Wildbad.
And the transition went very smoothly, as Jordy explains: ‘I was surprised that the culture at the German office was not much different from the one I knew from The Netherlands’, says Jordy. ‘The same open culture and not too hierarchical. The language was not an issue. As most Dutch people learn a bit of German in school and the languages are similar, changing over is not too difficult.
What I like the most about living here is the beautiful environment. The saying “living where other people go on holidays” feels true. Being able to hike/walk/cycle in nature every weekend is lovely. If we miss the city, we hop in the car and drive to Stuttgart or Karlsruhe, which are also not far away.”
