How did you search for a job after graduating?
During the extended master Organization Studies I worked as an intern at Mondriaan Management and Consultancy. After graduating I decided to continue to look for job as a consultant, but this time more focused on the IT side. I applied for various IT related traineeships and found a job at Strict Academy. For one of my first assignments I was detached at The Rent company for several months. The fit with the function and the organization was perfect, so I decided to continue to work directly for The Rent Company.
How does your job relate to OS?
As Information Manager I am responsible for software, information and application landscape of The Rent Company. In my role I focus on the coordination of different projects between different business units, our development and ICT-team and various partners. The different project management, organizational behavior and network and relation courses really fit the work I do nowadays. Not only the study itself, but also the committee work and board year experience really help in my daily work.
What is your favorite POLIS memory?
I have many good memories about my time at study association POLIS. It was really nice to experience all the different activities during my board year as chairman of POLIS. The most exciting activities were the study trips to Kuala Lumpur & Singapore, Istanbul and Cape Town. Also being part of the Lustrum V committee and the lustrum itself are definitely one of my favorite memories.
