During my placement year at Microsoft, I realised that it is important to learn and surpass your limits. I am now more confident in my technical and soft skills, and I am more certain that independent of the task, I will be able to deliver the end results for a project.
I am honoured to have experienced a wide range of work placements whilst studying. These experiences have facilitated my road to success. The challenges I mostly faced, were financial and cultural, but having the chance to earn some money whilst a student definitely helped a lot! I evolved from a simple volunteer in my first year to the unique Frontrunners scheme at Essex, which offered me the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience in event and project management, and develop confidence in communication, working alongside and being trained by experienced staff in a busy office environment. Liaising with a wide range of people, internal and external to the University, I also worked as Student Ambassador and Employability Ambassador, while being involved in various extra-curricular activities, such as being a volunteering project leader with vTeam or Secretary for Romanian Society.
I am now a third year student and during my second year I decided to get involved with Essex Startups. Based in the Innovation Centre, Essex Startups is not only about innovation or professional progress; it is also about the people you meet, the network you build, and about life experiences. Working with Essex Startups is also a great chance to discover both yourself and other likeminded people. Since I have joined this community I could not stop getting involved in its various challenges and bootcamps. I enjoyed them a lot, but besides having fun, I have also learnt so many new aspects about life and business. Some of the most important aspects that I would hardly forget were related to resilience, and to the importance of a strong and supportive network of people. I highly recommend other students explore more of what Essex Startups has to offer them.
