Why I came back to Bulgaria and chose B EYE – Magi

“Starting as a Junior HR Specialist, I had the task to understand all the dos and don’ts in a professional environment while simultaneously learning on the spot for the first time what it means to be a human resources representative. Now, 3 years and 3 positions later, I am a senior in my field and the point of contact for all Human Capital matters at B EYE.”

Have you ever wondered why so many students decide to return to our homeland after graduation given a career abroad has been so highly advertised in the past decades? Well then, let us tell you one of our colleagues’ story.

So, Magi, why did you choose to come back to Bulgaria?

Having the opportunity to study in an international environment and then bringing this new perspective back, while being reunited with your closest people is an undeniable perk. Completing a degree in the Netherlands is something I never regretted doing and so is coming back to Bulgaria afterwards. Bulgaria combined all my key priorities – an opportunity for professional development in the desired field, beautiful nature, and of course – the undeniable feeling of ‘home’.

And why B EYE of all places?

B EYE took a leap of faith in me and allowed me to start my career and prove my potential. Having no previous experience in this field was a big concern as we have all stumbled upon the disheartening “entry level” positions creeping around the internet with required 3-5 years of relevant experience. However, when the ad showed up it immediately piqued my interest as it never once mentioned required employment record. Surely enough I applied and successfully passed the recruitment process before graduation date had even arrived.

How do you feel about your choice now? What can you tell us about your time here?

Starting as a Junior HR Specialist, I had the task to understand all the dos and don’ts in a professional environment while simultaneously learning on the spot for the first time what it means to be a human resources representative. Now, 3 years and 3 positions later, I am a senior in my field and the point of contact for all Human Capital matters at B EYE. It has been a steep learning curve but one I would not change. It showed me what determination and hard work can do in an environment that supports learning and constant development.

I am glad we had this small chat. What is your advice for the next “Magi” that will have to take on this journey?

While sometimes it may feel like a fool’s errand to find your first job and start your path, it is not impossible. Companies such as B EYE where talent is spotted in its infancy exist and it is once you find them that the real challenge begins. So, buckle up for the ride.
