Let's hear what Gülsah has to say about her time at the GDF
While being busy with those tasks, I grasped the opportunity to have a little peak into another area of my interest: User Experience Research. I put the theoretical knowledge I had learned at university to the practice.
My colleagues, especialle Micha, showed me how to create a survey considering customer pain points and analyze the results with respective reporting methods. Those learning opportunities opened me some closed doors, giving me insights into tasks and topics not mentioned in my initial job advertisement. This shows that you as a working student are not limited to your initial role, but are able to follow your interests.
Besides, I was given much responsibility through my supervisors, which allowed me to broaden my horizon and develop new skills. I always felt their confidence in me (thanks Dorothee, Daniela and Anian!), which really boosted my self-confidence as well. They gave me the chance to work on new ideas, present those to large groups of colleagues, and complete the tasks the way I initially planned them.
I felt honored that they placed so much trust in me, considering I am "only" a working student - this is definitely not an opportunity you get in every working student job.
