Why it is important to work during your studies

Interns at ERNI series: Nikoleta Žišková

A university student searching for a job is mainly looking for these things: valuable job which will impart new skills and experience, flexible working time and a good environment. ERNI gives me all of the above and much, much more. When I was applying for a job here, I was not really sure what awaited me.

Now it is exactly one year since I started to work here part time as a marketing assistant at our site in Slovakia. It flew so quickly, but at the same time I have learned so much new stuff. It is impossible to compare studying something at school and doing it in practice. I would say that during a half year working for a good company, you will learn more than during three years attending lectures. It not only teaches you knowledge, skills and experience but also self-discipline and good time management. My job has given me a much better insight into marketing, mainly in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) – the core of my work. Moreover, I have learned a lot of useful things from the colleagues in my team in the sphere of event marketing, campaigns, corporate identity, re-branding and using social media for business. This year I will also have an opportunity to write my master’s thesis in connection to our company.

Besides all the experience and new knowledge, there are many more perks of working at ERNI. For students, it is sometimes quite hard to find a good part-time job with flexible working hours. At ERNI, I can adapt my working time according to my timetable at school, which is a big advantage. Therefore, I usually work three days per week. And what is the best thing about it? No-one in my team, or even in the whole company, differentiates between interns, part-timers or full-time employees, even though we are students with less experience. They treat us as equals and ERNI always shows its employees that they are valuable for the company, including us.

Another important thing for our company is employee self-development. Thanks to our international activity, I use English on a regular basis, so I can continually develop my English skills. As a journalism enthusiast, I also have an opportunity to write articles for our intranet or the company website whenever I find some additional time for it. Moreover, we have a lot of workshops on a regular basis, ranging from soft skills training or programming for beginners to workshops for our software engineers. Everyone can choose a subject in which they are interested. It also includes many community events, which contribute to building a better working environment.

And last but not least – when you work while studying, you can better figure out in what sphere you want to devote yourself when you finish university. Maybe it sounds a bit cliché, but I also found myself. As a journalism student, I always liked writing and creative things but I was also interested in marketing itself, as I have some classes dedicated to it. Before, I was not really sure what I would like to do when I finish my degree. Now I definitely know that I want to connect journalism and marketing together – thanks to ERNI.
