“This meant I got valuable insights into how the different business units in such a dynamic IT business would work together – from pre-sales quoting and internal operations projects to high level financial and sales analytics.”
What has been the most valuable part of the Graduate Programme?
I was given the opportunity to develop different cross-functional skills across the different teams and learn how business units collaborate to reach our goals and drive partner success.
I was also able to put the skills I learned in university into practice in a real commercial environment. Not just technical or commercial skills – soft skills such as problem solving and interpersonal skills you can only get from a real work environment.
What have been your highlights so far?
The biggest highlight by far was being offered the Business Analyst position which is my current role. It was a personal goal for me. What I love most about this role is working collaboratively with subject matter experts to solve problems and learn new skills.
Another highlight for me, was working on a project for a vendor’s renewal business, spanning numerous countries across the APAC region. I am continuously challenged and always learning new things; understanding the commercial complexities and stakeholder engagement involved in such a project was instrumental in my development.
