Your role at Comtrade
- When did you join Comtrade and what is your current role?
I joined Comtrade in August 2016 and I currently work as Android Developer.
- What’s the best part about working at Comtrade?
You don’t really understand how a real business environment works until you start your first job. As a university student, you gain theoretical knowledge but the lack of practical experience leaves you unprepared for the real world. At Comtrade, I had the opportunity to take part in real projects and work in teams with people of different backgrounds. It was my first taste of workplace life.
Your experience at EDIT
- Why did you apply for EDIT?
I discovered EDIT via the edit.world website, where I looked up all necessary information and submitted my application. I decided to apply because I wanted to get a glimpse into what it’s like to solve real business challenges.
- What was your experience at EDIT like? What project did you work on?
My team and I worked on developing an Android application, which was great because it involved the skills and expertise I was eager to develop. Our project was centered on augmented reality and encompassed teamwork, plenty of challenges and knowledge transfer, all of which I found extremely useful.
- What is your favorite memory from EDIT?
Even though the school only lasted for two weeks, we have experienced so much: forming new connections and friendships, teamwork, bonding, learning through real projects, creating presentations…
- How did EDIT help prepare you for a career in IT?
EDIT was a great learning curve. At university, you don’t get much exposure to the real-life business environment. That’s why practical experience is extremely valuable – it gives you a unique insight into the professional workplace.
Your future at Comtrade
- How do you see your future at Comtrade?
I’d like to continue working as Android developer, constantly honing new skills and pursuing further career growth.
- What would you like to accomplish?
I believe every programmer aims to become a recognized expert in his field. That’s exactly my goal – gain as much experience as I can, work on as many projects as possible and expand my network of contacts. I see Comtrade as an excellent career development platform that will enable me to accomplish these goals.
