How did you end up with us?

It was during my studies; we had a mandatory internship. My uni colleague, Magde, (now my co-worker) had mentioned that she started an internship at IT Labs, so I decided to apply for the summer program as well, and I got in!

What was your experience in the internship program? With the mentors?

Quite the rollercoaster. I applied for QA internship, however during the interview and the assessment, the recruitment people told me that my skills are more suitable for BA. At the time I didn’t know exactly what a BA was, but I decided to shoot my shot and accepted the offer. I learned a great deal from my mentors, as they supported me every step of the way, and helped me immensely during the internship, and also later on.

What do you see yourself doing in the future? The only way is up, so where exactly is that?

Lately, my focus has been on product management activities, so I see my future self: climbing the product manager/product owner ladder. I’m interested in this field and at IT Labs, we’re encouraged to keep learning and developing, so I’ll go for it!

What does your average day look like?

Facilitating meetings with both the team and the clients, lots of emails, documenting requirements, doing analysis and research, brainstorming, preparing mockups, and the list goes on. No day is the same, and that’s the one thing I really love about this job.

Anything personal to add?

When I first came to IT Labs, my goal was to learn more about software quality and become an experienced QA engineer. But I walked out of the internship interview as a BA intern. You might ask yourself how and why this has happened, but remember this – people here can see potential in you, to develop in ways you’re not even aware are possible.
