Why did you choose CSC?
When being a student, I took part in a study project in collaboration with CSC and was nicely impressed by their warm welcome as well as the open and friendly corporate environment that CSC creates. I was also surprised to hear that CSC has wide representation worldwide, employing more than 80,000 people around the globe. Having one of the key priorities to acquire an international experience, my choice was undoubtedly CSC, as one of the attractive potential employers here in Denmark.
What’s it like to be a graduate in CSC?
I started in CSC with a main goal to enhance my managerial skills and I was glad that CSC trusted me to manage one of the company’s projects from my first day. When we, all graduates, just started in the CSC we received a warm welcome in the company and certainly got all needed support from our managers when dealing with day-to-day challenges.
Being a newly employed in such a large company like CSC, you would have difficulties to navigate, however with our managers’ assistance and CSC’s introductory sessions we could easily find a way out in any situation.
What do you work with on a daily basis?
As part of a global team, I perform project management tasks on application modernization project that seeks to transform legacy applications, moving them to the Cloud. In a team of 7 we are developing a proof of concept and business case for transforming a customer application. Our collaboration with the team members, located outside Denmark, is mostly held via telephone conferences and is one of the greatest challenges, in my opinion, due to the significant time and work culture differences.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I am open to new opportunities in creating IT solutions that could benefit customers and society. I see myself in a manager role in the nearest future; however, I never exclude a possibility that my ambitions might change dramatically, when I try doing new things that could interest me.
Being extremely enthusiastic to improve my communication skills in Danish, I certainly expect myself to become fluent in Danish.
