A postcard from Austria

We like to make sure our colleagues are doing great, that is why we are always happy to receive a postcard from them!

Our colleague Marija Trifkovic, Project Coordinator in RNC Solutions Austria is going to share with us her impressions of working in Austria.

Q: What are the challenges and the advantages of working in Austria?

A: One of the challenges of office work, but I would say field work too, in a country like Austria is certainly mastering the German language. If you have decided to live in Austria, start learning the language as soon as possible because it will be much easier for you in the long run. Of course, true knowledge of a foreign language requires a certain amount of time and effort, but it definitely pays off. Advantages that knowledge of any foreign language brings, especially one of the dominant world languages, are immeasurable both in business and in private life.

Q: How does a working day of our team in Austria differ from a working day in the Balkan countries?

A: I wouldn’t say that there are any crucial differences, especially not in the way the work is done or in the amount of effort invested. But certainly, one of the things that our Austrian teams really appreciate is that they have the opportunity to visit the most beautiful places in this country far and wide.

I can candidly say that they were in locations that even persistent tourists could not reach. The photos that are forwarded from the field are often stunning and that is an experience that will stay with them for a lifetime.

Q: Three of Austria’s most stunning natural beauties, in your opinion?

A: Out of so many spectacular and interesting things in Austria, I could not single out only three, but if I had to, I would pick, before all else, the entire province of Tyrol – a mountainous region in the heart of the Alps.

Most tourists opt for Tyrol in winter, because it is considered one of the best ski destinations, but I would recommend visiting Tyrol in the summer, even in autumn. It is impossible not to fall in love with the mighty mountain peaks, rivers and green pastures, and wildlife that can be seen along the way.

In the second and third place on my list is, of course, Vienna :). It is said that no country combines urban and rural with such ease – one moment you are captivated by the Alpine peaks, and the next, by the capital city and its architecture.
