I completed the Bachelor’s degree studies in Information Systems programme at the Faculty of Informatics, and later, the Master’s degree studies in Information Systems Engineering programme. I found my first job during the fourth year of the Bachelor’s degree studies. It was not difficult to find a job. Employers do pay attention at where you finished you studies. The KTU Faculty of Informatics is one of the best in Lithuania and this fact contributes greatly to your job search.
Personal characteristics are also important. In my case, the diligence and analytical thinking helped me to earn trust of the company’s top managers and allowed me to work with information systems where no mistakes are acceptable, because this would stop all the company’s activities in the world.
