“I’m making new friends, the shyness, the fear… everything is gone!”
Jyothsna is the latest Industry Connect recruit to start a new career, this time she found a job as a BI Developer!
Congratulations on your new job as a BI Developer Jyothsna! Tell us, how was your time with Industry Connect?
It was very engaging. I didn’t feel like I was just sitting at home reading a book. We had chats and meetings every day, so I felt like I was active and really working!
I had a long gap year and when I joined I had a lot of questions, but you guys were there to answer all my questions very patiently. If I didn’t know something, I asked and you explained it, so you gave me the opportunity to learn, so thank you.
It was a great experience for me and it was a great entry into the New Zealand IT sector. I have no regrets of anything. I really enjoyed working there.
I never felt that I was lost. If I was stuck on something, I’d put it in the group and the answer would be there the next day.
When I got this new job, I used what you taught me during the interview process. It was very helpful for me, the behaviour questions, the technical questions, talking about my experience with SQL… that’s why I got the job.
I’m making new friends, the shyness, the fear… everything is gone! Lots of good things came from MVP Studio and Industry Connect.
What would you suggest to others who are thinking of joining Industry Connect?
When I started I made a great decision. It’s not just like some people are teaching us and we’re learning, it’s more like we have to find the solutions ourselves. That teaches us more.
The IT sector is changing all the time, so you have to keep on top of it. Keep learning new things, doing new courses and discovering new techniques. There are lots of opportunities out there to gain new skills.
If you’re ready to be more active, ready to take a new step, then go for it. Don’t be lazy. Find yourself, find your way. Don’t be afraid of anything, just go for it.
Well thank you Jyothsna, and good luck in your new job as a BI Developer.
