The people from Rainbow Resources Group did something that seemed impossible to me, so I’m taking here the initiative to explain it a little bit, and perhaps someone else’s life could be completely changed (in a good way) after being motivated to reach out to them for help.
During the Summer of 2016, I found myself in an extremely difficult situation, I was desperate and I didn’t know from where to start. I had to find a job as quickly as possible, but at the same time I didn’t have the time to completely dedicate myself to this task. Being Bulgarian, I wanted to use the fact that I’m still in Brussels for a couple of months to try to find a job.
After being advised by a friend to do so, one of the first things I did was to write to Rainbow – I wrote a long and desperate e-mail. Literally 10 minutes after sending it (just the time to read what I wrote), I received a phone call from Marie from Rainbow and she presented me right away the different job offers that could fit my profile. I also tried to reach out to all the other “famous” recruitment agencies, but Rainbow was the only one to respond to my cry for help.
Later, Alison called me to offer me a temporary job – a company needed urgently an additional person for three weeks and I accepted. I think it is important to clarify that this company is related somehow with my studies, even if the job by itself wasn’t. So, Rainbow managed to find not only a job for me, but a job in a company I’ll be interested in working for. From the other side, they managed to find an adequate person for a company which needed an extra pair of hands right away, for the very same day.
And all the people I met from Rainbow couldn’t have been nicer. For instance, during this temporary job, Alison and Laura came to say hi and to see how I’m doing. Clearly, I was not only a statistic for them.
A month and a half after I left this temporary position, Alison called me again for a lovely surprise – the company I worked for was interested in offering me a perment position. I accepted it of course and in this very moment, I have a permanent job. And to get it, the only concrete thing I did was to contact and meet the people from Rainbow.
In short, Rainbow Resources Group managed to find a permanent job in Brussels for a guy who didn’t do enough in his job search, who has a lot of holes in his CV, who doesn’t speak Flemish and whose English is far from perfect.
I could not be more grateful and honest while writing this. If you are a person looking for a job, or a company willing to hire people, I highly recommend Rainbow Resources Group. In the end, it’s all about people, and of all the recruitment agencies I’ve contacted, Rainbow is the most human one.
