"Be brave because this is the only way you can achieve change, both personally and professionally."
Working as an intern at Accenture was one of the best things I could have done in the summer of 2021. It was fulfilling, very educational and amazing, all at the same time. I learned how to develop an application from top to bottom and, because I was working alone (due to the pandemic), I knew my app inside out. I enjoyed every moment of the internship, because it was challenging both my technical skills – had to learn stuff I didn’t know or used before – and my soft skills as well – had to present my project in front of the whole company which was amazing and frightening at the same time. My mentor was kind, welcoming and very helpful, always coming to rescue whenever I got blocked. Accenture showed me why it is worth working in Industry X and I was thankful for having a chance to be a part of it.
My first and only project as an intern was to develop a web app using various technologies like AngularJS, .NET Core and SignalR. This WebApp had to be able to handle users with various access rights and it had to have the ability to send out alerts, in form of toast messages, to various clients or group of clients. After the internship ended, I got hired as a full-stack software developer and I am working on a project that is similar to what I developed during the internship but works on a much larger scale which helps to develop both personally and professionally. After some time, I became more familiar with the project, my team and I learned how a normal day of a web developer looks like.
A day in my life starts with, and I am sure this is true for a lot of other people, with a cup of coffee next to my computer. After that I start working on my tasks, which I enjoy a lot because I am working with people with similar interests, hobbies and who are passionate about what we do. Basically, I found another family. If I have some spare time, I enjoy playing video games and driving on country roads.
As I am still a student at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, I am only a part-time employee, but even like this, I feel like I have won the lottery by being part of my team: they are very helpful, and they always give great advice.
