Read some awesome career stories!

Story 1 - Lucas Machado

1. What is the study program you graduated from?

I graduated from the Master’s Degree Program in Software Development at Tampere University.

2. Where are you currently working and what is your work position? How did you discover this position?

I am now working full time as a System Specialist for Demola Global, and part time as a Project Researcher for Tampere University.
I was an exchange student in University of Tampere during 2013-2014 and in that period I participated in a summer job for Demola for a Ministry of Education challenge which was very successful. That allowed me to build a good professional network in Tampere, and even though I had to come back to Brazil for a few years, I kept nourishing those connections. When they knew that I returned to Finland in 2017, they invited me to work with them.
The part time job as a Researcher at the University I got as a result of my Master’s thesis. The topic is interesting in the research community and my work got published, so my supervisor invited me to extend it.


3. What kind of skills and competence did you get from studies and/or exchange etc. that have benefited you in working life?

I would say the most important skills for every kind of work are working in teams, ability to multitask, committing to deadlines, giving presentations and being able to effectively find information on literature and internet.
More specifically to my current work, Big data is a hot topic and the courses I had at the university helped me to have several applicable insights, especially when together with Information Visualization.

4. How would you describe the significance that your past summer job experiences and your thesis work have had on your career?

They were very important and had direct influence in my career. I got my current job in Demola because of the networking I built during my summer job in 2014. The topic of my thesis – Recommender Systems for Team formation – was inspired by Demola and recently also got me this research position at the university, in which I’m extending my thesis work.




Story 2 - Józefina Karinen

1. What is the study program you graduated from?

I have graduated from Industrial Engineering and Management, majoring in International Sales and sourcing. My previous academic background is in Production Engineering.

2. Where are you currently working and what is your work position?

I am working as a Supply Chain Engineer at a nanotechnology company, Beneq Oy. We develop industrial coating equipment and technologies for the needs of industry.

3. How would you describe the significance that your past summer job experiences on your career?

I have conducted several internships without giving it much thought beforehand. Turns out, they really shaped my career. I started out as an intern performing various lean related activities, went on to assisting in export processes, after which I ended up in procurement (all in three different companies). Now I am responsible for procurement and logistic operations, and part of various innovation projects within the company.

4. What kind of skills and competence did you get from studies that have benefited you in working life?

For starters, studying in various international environments benefited me a lot. It taught me there are different ways to approach business problems and each view brings in value. I also found practicing agile thinking very valuable, and learnt it is important to always question current ways of doing things. Especially I would say the best thing I have gained during my studies is the confidence in myself and the value I bring to the company.
