I recently completed a consulting engagement in New York and was on some well earned R&R in the Orient. I happened to be perusing through a popular job placement website when I came across an Ad for a job opening in Bermuda.
The pay was very competitive with jobs in Manhattan and featured a comprehensive benefits package inclusive moving expenses on and off the Island. Not that Bermuda is really that far away from the United States at all. In fact, Bermuda is literally a hop away from New York by plane. At 770 miles or a little over a two hours journey from JFK, Bermuda is the closest thing to a tropical paradise that boasts the northernmost coral reefs in the world.
I was certainly interested in the prospects of working in one of the most desirable parts of the world and decided to do some reading on the bermudajobs.com website. The site was well designed and very informative about work and living in Bermuda. I was even able to apply for a job directly on the website.
I was contacted soon after by Greg, an employment consultant at BermudaJOBS. Greg was excited to mention that there were quite a few job vacancies available in Bermuda due to the recent growth of Bermuda as a major center in the global insurance and reinsurance industries.
Greg was extremely patient and forthcoming with all the questions I had about relocating to Bermuda as well as the hiring process. I later learned that BermudaJOBS has offices in the U.K., Ireland, Canada and Bermuda and actively seeks to hire talented people to fill the growing needs of employers on the Island.
In the following weeks, I was suitably impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of the team at bermudaJOBS. They were very concerned that I find a company of my liking and ensure that the matching of skills and requirements went both ways between the job seeker and employer.
Greg and his counterparts were quick to update me on job offers and the general progress of my placement. They guided me through the process of looking through prospective employers and when I finally made a decision, I didn't feel pressured or hesitant in the least.
I'm very excited about my upcoming stay in Bermuda. I have an exciting career waiting for me with great financial rewards. The best thing, however, is the crystal clear waters and enticing, pink coral beaches of Bermuda.
