"More than the perfect match”
Working via a mediator agency was not initially favored by our engineer Joep van de Laarschot. But after a preliminary discussion with MCA, he became convinced of the advantages of working through a committed engineering and consultancy agency. "I'm here in my place. I get the trust and the right support to shape my career in the direction I would like to and that feels very nice!"
"I started my career 12 years ago with a degree in Mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU / e). Because of my great interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency, I then decided to specialize in a Master Energy Technology. At the end of my studies I was approached by a company for a challenging job at Cortexon. Here I worked with great pleasure almost 3.5 years. Until I noticed that I was ready for a new challenge. At that time I was accidentally contacted by MCA asking if I was interested in working for them. Since I already had some other plans in action and would have preferred a permanent job, I wasn’t too sure about MCA. Gradually, however, I was still interested and I started to talk with the team. During the conversations, I became very excited about MCA and the benefits they can offer me in terms of self-development and shaping my career. Then I went on a number of conversations with clients, but this didn’t turn to be a right match at that momnet. Until I went to talk to a client of MCA and discuss a cool project on the development of a new generation of dosing that I could start on and I felt it right away: “This is my next step!”
"As a Mechanical Engineer I mainly think in concepts, analyzing and making calculations. That’s something I missed in my previous job. To increase my knowledge and skills in a new software, MCA offered me a course in preparation for this project. Here I have much pleasure in my work. I am also extremely pleased that MCA listens to my story. MCA looks beyond making the right match and just focuses on how engineers can best support in achieving their goals. In the future, I hope to develop myself in the direction of system architecture and project management, so I can shift the emphasis of details to the overview of the project and the management of a team. Along with MCA I regularly discuss my goals and the way to it. They advise me to follow certain courses and develop skills to achieve my goal through tailor-made career plan Engineer Your Own Career. Perhaps even the most important thing for me is that they give me the confidence to continue to build my career in MCA. You also have a real connected team around you within MCA. That’s why “you stand there as an engineer never alone and that feels very nice!”
