My name is Uğur. I started my career at Teklas as an intern in 2019. During the previous three years, I have built my career in different fields, such as logistics, supply chain management, purchasing, production, business analytics and IT.
Currently, I have been a Software Engineer at Teklas, and I am also proud of being one of the IT Graduate Intern. In this blog post, I would like to express my experiences and opinions as an IT graduate software engineer.
The advantages and opportunities of the Teklas IT Graduate Program
The IT Graduate Program opens all the doors to the graduates. The mentors and the managers supports the graduates to take the right steps in their career path. Therefore, there is no need for the graduates to decide on a certain and particular career path in advance. To clarify, the program offers you the opportunity to get a taste of different IT areas. First, to discover whether you want to pursue a more technical or business-oriented path. On the other side, if you know exactly where you want to go and what kind of expert you want to become, the program also enables the opportunity to deep-dive into a certain function, in a variety of countries and in different business areas. Moreover, Teklas is a very diverse manufacturing and technology company; therefore, there are always new issues, struggles and advantages for you. In addition to all these advantages and opportunities, we have been using the latest technologies in order to improve our products, streamline our business processes, and provide the ideal solutions to our customers and employees. We offer our people the “Freedom To Act” to learn, to explore, and to participate in technology. “Freedom To Act” is also built into this program, as the graduates choose their assignments for themselves. If you enjoy learning new things, I am pretty sure that this program is a great fit for you.
