Success stories: Dr. Leela Monti
Mrs. Leela Monti applied for a job in Germany in November 2007. In December 2007 we invited her to an interview where we were impressed by her qualities and her strong desire to get a job in Germany.
We encouraged her to improve her German language knowledge in order she can obtain a job in Germany, because that was the only criteria which had to be still accomplished. In February and April we met again to reevaluate her German knowledge and in May she had an interview in Germany with her actual employer.
Below you can read the testimony of Mrs. Monti:
The confidence that the decision to take over has a sense for me is what is inspiring me to succeed in the new life here.
Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. (Vaclav Havel)
My choice is to begin a new life in Germany, taking over actually everything: I study German of which I had only basic knowledge and had prepared for during some months with a teacher, I study medicine in German and try to accommodate myself every day to a new country, to a new community, that of H-M Clinic from Thüringen, to a culture in which integrity, work ethics and team work are present both in professional and personal relations.
Why Germany? That’s what my colleagues asked me too, taking into account that I speak fluently both English and French, and as a consequence it would have been easier to accommodate myself to other countries like U.S.A, Canada, The United Kingdom or France.
My answer is simple. Because Germany accomplishes several of my wishes: proximity to my home, more sunny days per year and a landscape similar to that of the hill-mountain region where I was born, and as well a culture giving much importance to honesty, good organization and team work so that each person is respected and supported in the common effort to accomplish well the assumed duties.
The United Kingdom and France are closer, in Europe, but in the United Kingdom there is much fog and rain, and France, as any Latin country, with all respect for its qualities and remarkable realizations, has a specific culture, very charming and with much talk, characterized of less seriousness and consideration for the person near you, no matter whether it is a colleague, patient or a fellow citizen.
From my experience up to now (July-October) working as a doctor in H-M Clinic, Neurology department, I can say that it is an interesting work implying both the consultation of the patient and the weekly visit and the dictation of the patient’s main documents: the internment, the extension of the internment period in the hospital and the discharge from hospital.
The main challenge is learning simultaneously both the German language which requires much patience and perseverance and the procedures and medical treatment that the medical profession involves. If the grammar of a foreign language can be and were taught to me for two months while an intensive course of four hours a day, three days a week, the fluent speaking of the language requires much more time and daily communication practice in that language.
Now, after three months since the beginning of this new life, I can say that I am satisfied because I know that this step is completely according to what I needed, that is to prove myself that a human being can accomplish everything he wants and that enjoying life day by day, no matter how hard was the past, is as well natural as useful for each of us.
For those who dare to take it over, just like me, I wish them from all my heart to be patient and confident, because many accomplishments are waiting for them according to their courage and decision.
