Over the course of my degree, I acquired many diverse tools that have helped me ever since, including in finding employment. Above all, I learned how to learn, which is one of the most important tools I could be given. Today, I feel confident that I can learn any subject by myself, however challenging. This is extremely useful in my work, in which I have to learn new subjects every day.
Before I started at the Technion, I was worried about the social life; I had heard rumors that students have no time for extracurricular activities, and certainly not for social events and parties. Once I entered the faculty, I realized that this isn’t the case. I made many new friends at the Technion, and volunteered for the faculty student council, serving as a semestrial representative, deputy chair, and eventually chair of the council. This allowed me to make my own impact on social life in the faculty and to improve it for the benefit of my fellow students. During my studies at the faculty, I attended countless parties and both social and academic events, and had a hand in organizing many of them.
Today I am employed at Microsoft, where I am training to become a systems architect for Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform. I can safely say that my studies at the faculty and at the Technion gave me a running start when it came to looking for work. It was immediately obvious to me that I had multiple advantages as a candidate, and had acquired qualities and tools that not every institution bestows. I had the privilege to be accepted into a highly unique program and position in Microsoft, and received conditions and remuneration that I hadn’t expected. I fly to training programs abroad and travel to meet all kinds of interesting clients, and work at the cutting edge of technology.
The tools I received here, and the friends I made, will stay with me for life.
