My name is Mohammad Bashar Wattar and I am from Syria. I completed my bachelor’s degree in computer science and I worked as a software developer in Syria for more than 8 years.
I was very actively looking for a job and yet I did not find anything in IT, so I looked for other sectors and worked as an administrative assistant for 10 months.
Time is running fast and never going back, so I enjoy my life and start again when something does not work. I go on and that is also my tip for everyone.
I tried to apply for an internships, part-time and full-time jobs in my field and only got rejections. After receiving more and more regectiones, I decided to focus on three things: learning German, studying new programming languages by myself and building a new network group.
Despair can affect us when we lose things, but life deserves adventure and optimism!
So I tried to visit language cafés on a regular basis to improve my communication language and meet new people. On the other hand, I applied for several mentoring programs to have more networking opportunities and get advice to improve my job opportunities.
You deserve a better life. Strive for it.
Then I heard about MTOP. MTOP supported me in finding my first job in Austria as a software developer. After one and a half months I had a job with an unlimited contract. Now I am very happy to work with a cooperative team and it is also a great opportunity to learn more about Austrian traditions and values!
