Senior Project Coordinator, Junior Executive, Admin & Central European Business Unit

I started my journey at Cognizant Hungary just over 2 years ago. I had just come back from France where I finished my Erasmus semester, and my friend mentioned that Cognizant could make use of my French language skills. He recommended me and that’s where it all began. It’s incredible, really, as I did not have any previous experience, but Cognizant offered me the position of a service desk agent anyway. In terms of the labour market in Hungary, this is a huge selling point to those who are just starting their careers.

I don’t regret joining one bit. I enjoy the multicultural environment; you hear great stories from colleagues of other cultures and that makes your day a lot more colourful, even though the job itself is not dull at all. Constant challenges and the ever-changing technical environment push you to adapt and improve. Contrary to popular misconception, working on the service desk is not just about answering call after call. You improve your IT knowledge a lot and your language skills can see a huge improvement too. And as no day’s the same, it’s never boring.

You also have the possibility to advance your career. I myself worked up to the position of project coordinator which involves communications, marketing, business planning and a wide range of other responsibilities which allow me to learn, improve and get tons of experience I can make use of later.
