My biggest success

During my internship I came into contact with one of our biggest customers. I gained interesting insights into the cloud infrastructure of that company and soon after was given the opportunity to implement projects on my own.

How I found my current job

I found my current job through a former fellow student, who came across the company during a meetup event. He told me about the presentation and said that this might be the right company for me and that I should apply.

What I learned for this job during my studies

Analytical thinking: identifying and solving problems is a skill I have acquired during my studies and which I need for my job every day.

Job prospects in my field

The prospects of finding a job in this sector are very good for graduates of this programme. A Bachelor's degree in Information Management is excellent preparation for the IT consulting sector.

I am:

  • inventive

Who always does what he is already able to do, always remains what he already is.

I am currently studying

After completing my Bachelor's I decided to study for a Master's degree in Information Management at FH JOANNEUM to expand and consolidate my knowledge. I hope that this will give me the opportunity to specialise in a subject area of interest.

How I make studying compatible with my job

I work ten hours a week during my Master's studies. The company is very helpful and allows me to make up for hours lost whenever I need to spend more time studying.
