WHAT THE PEOPLE WE HELPED TO MOVE SAY
My story with Transparent Hiring started when I applied for one of the open positions on their website. At that time, my English level was not high enough. After a couple of months of hard work, when I improved my language skills, this position had already been filled, and I requested a career consultation. Inessa gave me some interview insights (what I need to say, and what is a no-go), helped me correct my resume, and explained where and how to search for positions. When I was applying for jobs myself, there were very few responses, but after Inessa’s corrections, the situation became much better, and the initiative came from the recruiters, and I only responded. When I received an offer, I had no doubts about contacting Transparent Hiring again – this time for a relocation package. They provided me with comprehensive assistance in preparing documents for both me and my children: everything was thoroughly checked, additional letters were requested from the employer, and they told me about the approximate deadlines so that I could inform the company about them. There was also an additional consultation on the first steps in Germany, which was very helpful. Thank you very much for your work and professional approach!
I wanted to find a job with Transparent Hiring from the moment I learned about this company. I submitted an application, and as soon as a suitable position appeared, the company wrote to me. The specialists helped me prepare my CV and motivation letter. I was also warmly supported during the interview process. They made me feel really special: I was “the boy who made it,” since no one got beyond the first stage of the interview for this position. This gave me confidence both in the next stages and in general.
Then there was an amazing job of the relocation specialists. Here I would like to express my gratitude for their patience and understanding, as well as for an excellent expertise in my atypical case. They cheered for me and kept their fingers crossed, and with their help, support and valuable instructions, I received a visa. I am absolutely sure that I would never have managed it on my own.
I would like to thank the entire Transparent Hiring company and Inessa personally for helping me make my dream come true (there is no exaggeration here – I have wanted to move to Germany since 2018). We are settling in, there are still many difficulties ahead, but thanks to Transparent Hiring, my wife and I can make plans for the future again, and this is such a nice feeling!
My wife and I recently moved to Germany, and I would like to thank Transparent Hiring for their help! The agency’s specialists helped with my resume and gave useful tips on how to successfully pass interviews at their partner company. And thanks to them I received an offer in Dusseldorf! Then Transparent Hiring also assisted me in gathering documents for my work visa, and then my wife with her visa. And even after we moved, they helped us more than once with advice on various bureaucratic issues! It’s also very convenient that they created a chat for relocated specialists on Telegram, where you can ask any questions about moving and living in Germany.
I want to say a huge thank you to Transparent Hiring. With their help, my entire relocation process was incredibly smooth and comfortable! From the moment we began working together, I was impressed by the professionalism and attentiveness of the agency’s staff. They turned out to be not only experts in the field of relocation but also reliable partners, ready to answer all my questions and solve any problems that arose. The preparation of the necessary documents was carried out at the highest level. Transparent Hiring provided me with a clear plan of action for each step of the relocation, which greatly reduced the stress associated with the relocation. I especially want to highlight the efficiency in solving problems. Every point requiring attention was immediately addressed and effective solutions were proposed. This gave me a feeling of confidence and confirmed that I made the right choice in choosing this agency.
Hereby I want to confirm that Transparent Hiring is the best HR company I ever dealt with 🙂 Here is my story. In April 2022 I found a link to their website and left my CV and cover letter. In two days I got an email from Inessa Tikonov with an invitation for a quick review meeting where we discussed the Transparent Hiring working policy, I told them about myself and my expectations from the tech stack. Inessa helped me a lot with my CV and gave me valuable advice regarding interviews, and after several interviews, two companies made a job offer to me! Transparent Hiring not only accompanies you during the interviews and job search but also provides full help with the relocation process. Transparent Hiring, I wish you all the best!
Transparent Hiring accompanied me from searching for a job until registration and solving basic issues on-site. The nuances of an interview, communication with the employer, visa issues, and much more – all this in one place. Transparent Hiring does not follow a template but takes into account your specific situation. Even if problems arise, they will not leave you alone and will provide everything you need to obtain visas for you and your family. Moreover, they help with additional steps. Be sure that not a single question of yours will be left unanswered (in my case, the correspondence already exceeds 100 letters). I was amazed at how thoroughly and clearly they answered me, every nuance was covered, and I learned a lot of new things. The company also posts a lot of useful videos on YouTube channel and develops a community on Telegram, which greatly helps to find answers to any questions and find new friends.
I would like to express my gratitude to the recruiter company that helped me prepare for an important job interview and ultimately enabled me to receive a job offer. This company provided invaluable assistance in both preparing for the initial interview and navigating through the subsequent relocation process.
The recruitment team was extremely helpful throughout every step of my relocation process; they provided guidance on what documents were needed for my visa application as well as advice on how best to prepare myself for interviews overseas. Overall it was truly a great experience working with them!
This summer I received an offer from one of the IT companies in Berlin and, accordingly, I needed a visa to Germany. After reading a lot of instructions on how to submit papers for a visa application, I decided to turn to professionals and made the right decision. Transparent Hiring and personally Inessa helped me with all the necessary documents, filled out a huge pile of necessary forms in German, and also checked those that I filled out on my own. I was accompanied throughout the entire process of moving – from signing a contract with the employer to registering at the place of residence in Berlin. Top quality service from professionals who know their job, I recommend them.
I would like to express my gratitude to Inessa, she offered me a great job in a large German company. After going through several stages of interviews, I received an offer from them. At the same time, Inessa accompanied the whole process, helped in the choice (at that moment I had another offer from another company), was always in touch, gave practical advice and told me a lot not only about work, but also about life in Germany: about insurance, tax classes, and other details. It’s priceless to feel such support in a new country! Thank you!
I am very glad that I stumbled upon Transparent Hiring, and Inessa in particular. The company accompanied me in everything from preparing my resume to helping me choose a SIM card. I felt how many problems the company helped me avoid, without this company I would have drawn up documents several times longer.
I am grateful to Inessa and Transparent Hiring for helping me find a job in Germany and accompanying me through the entire relocation process. Firstly, I was lucky that through Inessa my resume got into the company of my dreams, I am extremely glad that I got into this team! And secondly, thanks to detailed consultations, the preparation of documents and obtaining a visa for my husband and I passed without unnecessary difficulties. In addition, Inessa helped to translate and understand the details of the employment contract, gave recommendations on finding housing and very clear instructions on the first steps after the move. I am very glad that I went all this way, accompanied by a professional with great practical experience!
Inessa is a great professional. Thanks to her, I managed to get an offer from a large IT company in Munich. Moreover, the amount in the contract turned out to be much higher than expected 🙂
Inessa assists at all stages. From useful tips on how to behave and what to look for in technical interviews, to useful links and life hacks for finding accommodation.
And this was surprising for me, because earlier I thought that the work of recruiters ends after the offer is signed.
I think that I was very lucky that I met Inessa at one time. I recommend everyone who is looking for a job in Germany to contact her. You will receive invaluable help and knowledge from a person who is well-versed in this.
I consider it a great success that my relocation journey to Germany began with Transparent Hiring. Thank you for preparing for the interview and selecting interesting vacancies, as well as for advice on preparing documents for a visa and detailed instructions on what to do upon arrival in Germany. Thank you for your work, it was a pleasure to cooperate!
I don’t know how to write reviews and never wrote them, but here it is.
Documents for visa/insurance 10 out of 10.
Job search support 10 out of 10.
Responsiveness and friendliness 10 out of 10.
I moved with my wife to Germany a little over a year ago. I learned about Transparent Hiring on the recommendation of friends. We were both looking for a job in the same city and wanted to find a job at the same time. Actually, everything turned out in the best way, Inessa immediately suggested an option that interested us. We successfully passed the interviews and got an offer. Further, the whole process of issuing a blue card was led by Inessa, we didn’t really know anything, all the work with the documents was done for us and we just had to sign. It was a very simple process. The housing issue was also resolved by Inessa. When people ask me how difficult the relocation was, I tell my story, and everyone says that we were very lucky. Every luck has a name, and in our case its name is Inessa Tikonov.
