How to take the first steps in the IT sector?
“Accenture” developer of robotics process automation in the Baltics countries
I studied economics and business, so after graduation I started working in finance, providing administrative support services. While working at a bank I had the opportunity to touch on a business process automation project. The experience gained in the project made me think about the development of technology and future career opportunities in finance. I was 23 years old at the time, so I thought I would either decide to change professions now or never. I have decided to take this step, so after working in the bank, I started studying business process automation in the evenings. I got a certificate proving my knowledge and I started working on company “Accenture” which at the time was running a new automation project in the financial field. The start wasn’t easy, there were not only good but also bad days, which were helped to overcome by helpful colleagues and inner determination, which encourage not to stop but to move forward. It’ll soon be three years since I decided to change professions. Seeing how fast business process automation is evolving I’m convinced of the viability of this area and that I have made the right decision.
