Hanka's Misson You Experience
I had entered a competition on the MyKindaCrowd website, which asked challenged me to create a new IT system that would help people overcome a challenge they are facing. I was pleased to hear that I entered a winning submission and gained place on the Mission You programme.
TCS is one of biggest tech companies in the world, I was excited to be part of the work environment of such a great name.
I was quite nervous on my first day as I did not know what to expect. We had an induction where Rahul at TCS, who talked about the company. Everyone was very friendly and nice.
Over the next few days, we had the chance to shadow different people and explore a range of positions at TCS.
We participated in Q&A sessions and small challenges and I realised that you do not have to have an IT background or qualifications to work at a company like TCS as there are many sectors such as finance, law and administration to get involved in.
On our last day, we separated into two groups. We had a last challenge to create and present a PowerPoint, we were judged by seniors and our group won!
Overall, I enjoyed the experience, it was very interesting and I learnt many things about employment and life as an employee.
I am grateful to MyKindaCrowd as well as TCS for the opportunity!
