The story of a student wishing to discover the world


Today I would like to share a little bit about my first professional experience abroad – since the beginning of June, I work as IT consultant at Devoteam Czech Republic.

This is my first step into IT Consulting world and my first “serious” work experience. There is some real hard work behind each project so foosball games and PS4 in the office proved as a good way to relax! I work in an open space side by side inspiring and dedicated professionals that are willing to help everytime I ask for advice. The atmosphere in the office and small challenges every day make me feel good. So far I’m looking forward to every single day in the office with my new colleagues and friends (however no worries, I enjoy my weekends in Prague as well).

What grabbed my attention the most is the GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance) ServiceNow module through which I discovered a universe of security. I work with Yann Bouvier and Devoteam Denmark to provide with a number of ready to deploy applications to rapidly advance the GDPR program. I truly have a feeling that I learned more in one month than I ever learned in one year. Also, my English is getting better every day!

I don’t like to think too much about the future since I can’t control it, so I live the moment with passion and I encourage young people to travel and discover what the world prepared for us. A world of responsibilities, actions, networking and big and small challenges. It’s definitely worth trying!

Thank you for taking time to read this, I’ll be back in one month to let you know about my next progress. I wish you good luck with your challenges or like we say here: hodně štěstí!
