Curious about Arjan Smit ‘s internship experience? Read Arjan’s findings here.
1: How did you experience the internship at Convident (general)?
Very good! From the first day I was immediately welcomed and taken on as a full member of the team. I had the opportunity to work on a nice project during my graduation internship. During this period I have been able to experience what they are involved in from different departments and I have also been able to learn something from this.
2: Have you been well received by our colleagues (working atmosphere)?
Yes, the atmosphere within the group of colleagues is very pleasant. In addition to the work, there is also time for fun. The drinks on Friday afternoon or the outings to Boel or through the canals are always fun. It could just happen that after a Friday afternoon drink you are still in the pub until 4:30 in the morning to turn off the lights.
3: Would you recommend future interns to do an internship at Convident?
Sure! Within Convident there is a high degree of expertise in all kinds of areas. The open working atmosphere in which everyone is ready for you is an added value for future interns. You are expected to be able to perform a lot independently as an intern, but it is no problem to ask someone with experience for feedback. This allows you to develop yourself in a way that you do not experience from your studies.
4: What grade do you give your internship at Convident and why?
At least an 8.5. I have been able to use my accumulated knowledge to apply it in a challenging project in which I have been able to make use of different expertise available within Convident. In addition, I was able to further develop myself in the field of UX design, including concepting and user research.
5: What will you take with you from Convident to the rest of your career?
I have had the opportunity to continue my career within Convident which I am very happy and satisfied with. Developing within the Convident team and executing cool projects is what I look forward to in the coming period.
