HEAR IT FROM THE CURRENT GRADUATES
“For a recent graduate, swimming in the ocean of the job-hunting market can be intimidating and overwhelming and makes you face with questions like: “How do I want my career path to be? What are my skills and how can I put them to good use? How can I make my inspirations and ambitions match the reality?”. When I saw that Sofigate was hiring new graduates I was elated: finally, an opportunity to kick-start my career in a company that invests in new professionals, giving them the chance to learn both from high level trainings and very welcoming colleagues. We rotate around the Nordic company offices, exposed to different lines of business and different working styles. Sofigate takes great pride in focusing on a very specific and elite market of digital transformation enabled by business technology, and I am so eager to learn from and contribute to the life of this company in the following year.”
“After graduating with an engineering degree, I was looking for a place to go beyond purely technical solutions and found that in Sofigate. At Sofigate, we combine expertise in IT with business insight to generate value for clients and the graduate program teaches both hard and soft skills that are necessary in the consulting business. From the perspective of company culture, I was immediately attracted by the flat hierarchy and open and supportive work environment. It gives us graduates the opportunity to work closely with senior consultants at Sofigate and with clients. I am very much looking forward to developing myself both professionally and personally and I expect there to be a steep learning curve.”
“Since the beginning of my education, I have been passionate about finding solutions to complex problems and using various types of data to uncover new insights. At the same time, I think the future of business is inextricably linked to IT, and IT management will only become a more critical part of business strategy going forward. As a result, for me Sofigate offered the perfect fusion between traditional management consulting and business technology, and represents a modern, forward-thinking company. Furthermore, Sofigate has given me the chance to start my career in a place where I can continue my professional development in a dynamic environment, and where I get the opportunity to learn while working alongside many experienced colleagues from different backgrounds.”
