I have been working as an IT tester for ERNI Slovakia for almost five months now. As I am studying IT, my job gives me a great opportunity to gain skills and work experience in this field for the future. Nowadays, work experience is one of the most important and valuable things considered at job interviews. That is why finding a suitable job already during your studies is important. And the sooner you do it, the better.

However, while finding a dream job, you may encounter some obstacles. It is hard for a student to find an understanding employer. Due to my studies and time schedule at school, I need to be flexible, but ERNI understands all the struggles and supports me. I am allowed to have flexible working hours that are easily adjusted to the time schedule at my school and also if some important exams are coming. Mostly, I work three days per week, but I have the opportunity to work more if I have free time between semesters, or less if I have too large of a workload at school.

Another important advantage for me as an IT student working at ERNI is that I can have better insight into the process how a program is created and understand what kind of tasks each job position at an IT company entails. I attend various meetings so I can see the whole process of creating a new piece of software and observe all the work that is hidden behind it, including some obstacles that can occur. Currently, I work in a team which is creating a web application for our Swiss customer, but I also have the possibility for personal development. Therefore, I can also switch between several job positions, which is a rare opportunity for students. It is a good way to learn how to work in different teams and to see what good collaboration looks like – how to communicate with each other and find a good compromise and solution for a project.

In conclusion, ERNI provides a good environment for its employees, including students. Interesting meetings allow us to learn more about new things like 3D printing, Big Data and a lot more. We have various events which are great for meeting co-workers and getting to know them better. Overall, ERNI gives us a space for our own dreams and supports any interesting ideas that we can come up with.
