I have a Master’s Degree in Geology. After graduating in university, I moved to China to work in Chinese for a Chinese oil company while taking an advanced degree in Mandarin. After a couple of years working in China, I came back to Denmark where I then worked in the public sector in doing environmental protection work. I worked there for seven years, protecting the groundwater from the pollutants.
Onboarding a Geologist in the Public Sector
The Onboarding process when I was hired was great. As they are a really big organisation within the capital region of Denmark, you can really see that they have done it so many times.
So what they did was, we wouldn’t start work right away. They started by providing us a two week programme of training, where they told us basically everything we needed to know – the workflow and the software. We even had a group session with the top director of the capital region, where he would answer our questions. We also had regarding the political leadership and the practical work. And in the coming months, we would have more group sessions with, for example, the top director.
The top director was was in charge of a workforce of around 50,000 people, and you could sit and ask him questions. So that was really cool!
