Ever since a young age, I’ve always found an interest in maths and science based subjects. Despite there being times when I felt like wanting to pull my hair out of frustration, there was that great feeling of pride and accomplishment at the end of it all when I’d solve an equation or when I’d conduct an experiment.
However, during my GCSEs, I also developed an interest for Business and this further developed during my A-levels when I participated in the “Young Enterprise Challenge”. From this, I picked A-levels based on my interests at the time: Business Studies, Chemistry, Maths and ICT. When looking into university courses, I was keen on further exploring options that would tie in my interest in both Business and Computer Science which naturally then led me to completing a degree in Business Computing. I was eager to start my career in an industry where I could help others and I knew that technology played a vital part in this.
Technology itself intrigued me and I was keen to learn more about the various ways that businesses use technology to provide to their consumers e.g. by using some of the current “buzzwords”; Big Data, Machine Learning and Blockchain, to name a few.
Unlike some of the other sectors, I knew that the opportunities in the IT sector would be limitless and the career prospects were strong therefore it was obvious to me that it was a promising place to begin my career.
