After accepting the job in Cakovec and turning down all the other positions, I got this email this morning.  Probably because there would be too much “paperwork” involved in hiring me.

Poštovani,

Ja sam ravnatelju prenijela informacije koje ste mi javili u vezi dobivanja radne dozvole, no s obzirom da je nama bilo hitno pronaći zamjenskog liječnika ravnatelj je u međuvremenu uspio naći liječnike za upražnjena radna mjesta koji su se javili na natječaj i koji će odmah početi s radom. S obzirom da su nam sada radna mjesta popunjena, nismo u mogućnosti ponuditi Vam ugovor o radu, ali ćemo Vas kontaktirati početkom sljedeće godine s obzirom da imamo naznake da će nam tada možda trebati novi liječnici.

Lijep pozdrav,

Nikolina Maksimović-Đukec dipl. iur.

Back to square one.  If there are potential employers who I have emailed and decide to look at the links (blog and website) in the signature of every one of my emails, how do you expect a person to get the minimal amount of experience when you are constantly denied a position based on your nationality?  In this case, the amount of paperwork the lawyer has to go through.

    Cao Yeop, da svakako bolno iskustvo, no smatram da nije obojeno nacionalnošču, već jednostavno nesretna okolnost,povečane birokracije pri postupku zapošljavanja, vjeruj mi da je tako ,jer sam se naputovao i ispunio brdo “potrebnih papira” za sebe i druge, kako bih negdje dobio mogućnost boravka i rada….jednostavno imaš “kvrgavi nos” koji naš birokratski aparat idealno detektira i traži još i još papira da bi ga “estetski izravnali” a pri tome je tvoj nos sasvim u redu i sličan je tisučama drugih….upornost je jedino oružje koje djeluje učinkovito na birokraciju, birokratski duh i pristup stvarima

  2. Awesome! I just got an offer in Sesvete! That is a 20 minute train ride from Zagreb and the job is in a PRIVATE polyclinic! Then just as happiness sets in, I get a letter in the mail from MUP. Will post everything in my new post to my family.
