The Tailorminds Family
Now that my contract ends at Tailorminds, I’ve been requested to share my experience with Tailorminds. It was as followed:
However for the people who know Tailorminds and stepped in my footsteps before me will say that this is not giving a complete picture of what Tailorminds is about. My story was as followed:
I applied to a job and was asked for an interview at the office of Tailorminds. When I was friendly welcomed at the front door, guided to the (excellent) coffee and was asked to take place in the break-out room. Then to my surprise, Arjan and Dexter, joined me in the break-out room for the conversation! This was perfect for me, because I already felt at ease in the break-out room as I was in there for a few minutes. Because I did not need time to adapt to a new damp and gray office the conversation started straight away to the point. After enjoying the conversation (more than 1 hour) I left feeling strangely satisfied. I’ve had a personal screening conversation without the feeling of being observed. This combination of feelings made me energized to see where things might end up.
After a few more introduction rounds, I ended up at Agidens. An amazing fit for me. Everything was handled for me. The only thing that was needed from my side was some personal information and a signature. All negotiations were taken care of and done excellently.
During my first year at Agidens, I was stunned by the fact that they kept on track with me. They where really eager to find out how I was doing and if I was liking the position I was put in. In my previous experiences I was just being a number. However, TailorMinds experience was a warm feeling of security during this year. The start was not easy with working remotely from home (with a 2/3 year old son) and wherever they could, they helped, partially just by being there.
Now after my year finished at Tailorminds, I’m actually sad to go! I was welcomed into a very nice warm family and it is always sad to leave those. But knowing Tailorminds, we will keep in touch.
If you ever have the change to work with/for Tailorminds, take the opportunity. They will help you in your best interest, not theirs. Thank you, Arjan, Dexter, Sander, Peter and Corrie, for making it a year to never forget, and not just for Corona.
To finish this off, I’ll give just one piece of advise for the future of Tailorminds: keep doing what you do. And for the people who are easy and have limited problems at work, stay in touch with them (like you do now). Just by giving them a phone call, it’s appreciated even though it sometimes feels like it is of no help.
