Even if someone has a degree, it is quite hard for that person to find a suitable job without having much work experience. When I finished my full-time bachelor’s degree, I knew that I wanted to continue studying while working at the same time.
Therefore, I joined ERNI in October 2017 as an intern. At the same time, I started my master’s studies at the Lucerne Business School. ERNI has accepted that I work 60 percent of full time, which allows me to attend all my classes. After one month at the office in Bern, I got a mandate as a Business Analyst which lasted until the end of 2017. Afterwards, I became a Junior Consultant by the beginning of this year.
My work at ERNI allows me to gain experience and gather knowledge about software engineering which is closely related to innovation – my background. Not only do I benefit from my mandate but also from my contribution in the innovation service team. Since my start at ERNI, I have been a member of this service and have been helping to bring this business area forward. Different services give the employees the possibility to fully engage in a topic not only in order to develop themselves but also to diversify the portfolio of ERNI’s offering.
Work in the innovation sphere gives me the chance to develop myself in my preferred direction, to learn many new things and to deepen my existing knowledge. This has been especially true since my customer had an innovation workshop with our company. The result of it was a new product which I have recently started to implement. Since then, I have worked as a Business Analyst and Innovation Manager for my customer. It gives me the opportunity to get even more job experience in the innovation field.
