From Europe to Nakhodka - for development, mountains and sea

How Sergey Novikov fulfilled his dream and moved from the European Union to the Far East

Many Russian experts would not refuse to move to live and work in Europe - beckon prospects, infrastructure development, wages. However, there are enthusiasts who do not mind leaving the European Union for Russia, and not anywhere, but to the Far East: to friendly people, mountains, the sea and new opportunities for development and travel. On such a step once decided Sergei Novikov. Having lived in Denmark and Latvia, he decided to move to Nakhodka, and did not regret his choice.

From Europe to Nakhodka - for development, mountains and sea
Now Sergey works as a project manager at a municipal enterprise. Such specialists in Russia, and even more so in the Primorye Territory, are in short supply, since the work is creative, but responsible. Sergey comes up with new forms of interaction with customers and brings these projects to life.

- Work implies a lot of creativity, but, of course, unconventional thinking and taking into account customer needs. I have been working in Nakhodka since mid-September. Before that, it was difficult to get a job, since I was a “visa” - employers offered jobs, but only after obtaining citizenship, - explains Sergey Novikov.



In Europe, a specialist held various positions, mainly in the field of management. At the same time he was a hired employee, and worked for himself. Sergey admits that the main reason for moving from Europe was that he always wanted to live in Russia. Prior to this, I had only been in Moscow and St. Petersburg, so I had to carry out an analysis before choosing a job.

- First of all, people: I was told that the farther to the East, the more good-natured people. The second is the presence of the sea within walking distance and the mountains. The third is the size of the city. Therefore, despite the fact that at that time there were zero acquaintances in the Far East, this region was chosen, then Primorye and Nakhodka, - says Sergey Novikov.

Another reason for the move was the love of travel: if Sergei knows Europe well, he has not yet been to Asian countries. Now ready to learn new states, cultures, customs. There were more advantages from relocation than disadvantages - even the seaside climate was more to the specialist's liking than the Baltic one. Moreover, in Nakhodka there are more sunny days, the sea is warmer and more normal, snowy winter.



- I like Primorye very much, first of all by nice people, although I need to get used to some local peculiarities and words. I like the nature - here it is so beautiful that there are not enough words to describe. We were on the Gamow Peninsula and, for example, saw from the hill a lonely cloud hanging above Kecura (pillar-shaped rocks in the sea or on the shore - EastRussia), but I generally keep quiet about the Sister hill - I try to choose my routes so that I can see her every day, - Sergey admits.

So far, a temporary contract has been concluded with a specialist, but he intends to continue to work on the same specialty: he plans to develop the social direction in the city - he has a ready project, which he is now working closely on.

- I also plan to increase my competencies - I participated in the “Leaders of Russia” competition. For the passage to the third stage of the competition I did not have enough 5,5%, mainly in matters related to Russia. Therefore, we must learn to show decent results next year. In addition, I plan to continue my academic education, but this is in the medium term. And to develop professionally, to increase the efficiency of their work - I have always supported, in my opinion, a very correct tendency for lifelong education, - said Sergey Novikov.
