Quite a lot foreigners have found love and business opportunities in the city of Chengdu, including Norbert Antosik from the Netherlands, who is now operating his own company in the city with his wife Fiona, a Sichuan girl.
Norbert and Fiona graduated from the same university―the Saxion University of Applied Sciences―and they met for the first time when on a school trip to Belgium.
And they fell in love with each other afterwards.
After graduation in 2012, Norbert found a job as a business analyst in IBM in Poland. Fiona, on the other hand, had to go back to Sichuan because of reasons of visa registration. Fiona eventually landed a job at the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) in Amsterdam.
In 2014, Norbert came to Sichuan University to learn the Chinese language. After a semester, Norbert tried seeking employment but found he had few options other than teaching English in Chengdu. It was hard time for Norbert, and at the hopeless moment an inspiration burst upon him.
He had an idea to set up a platform between job seekers and employers. In June 2017, Norbert and Fiona co-founded eChinaCareers.
"In the very beginning, we had difficulties due to the lack of experience and interpersonal network. We started to do business in our living room, where we often worked till very late," said Norbert, "But we've gone through the hard times, sharing happiness and sufferings all the way."
In the same year they got married. After years of development, eChinaCareers, with more than 5,000 cooperative companies and a data pool of over 100,000 international talents, has grown into a top company in the field and its business has expanded to work visa application service for foreigners.
"We want to be the largest job-hunting platform for international job seekers in China," said Fiona.
"How time flies,"she continued, "Having known each other for over ten years, we have accompanied each other to make progress together."
Their declaration of love:
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
What place they recommend in Chengdu to make an appointment:
