For students at Chalmers participating at CHARM 2018, we have interviewed two of our consultants that can give you some advice when you are looking for your future employer. Our second interview is with Erik Nilsson.
Name: Erik Nilsson
What did you study?
Chemical engineering & Physics, Chalmers
What advice would you give to someone who is now looking for their first job after finishing their education?
Do not focus all your energy on finding a job with a perfect match to your education. There are so many options out there that are just as fun but was never mentioned in school. Do not be afraid to explore them.
With a good employer it is often possible to adapt your assignment at work to your specific skills and interests.
Many companies rely on reports and other documentation in Excel, learn to master it and enjoy an easier life when you finally get your first assignment.
How come you chose to start working at Certaincy?
I got in contact with Certaincy by coincident. I wanted to work at Volvo Cars as a consultant and applied for an opening at another company that forwarded me to Certaincy. I decided to join their team as they seemed to be a good company. They yet have to prove me wrong.
I got the assignment at Volvo Cars. After some time I wanted to change assignment and see something different. Today I work as a component engineer at CEVT at the electrical engineering department.
What would you say is the best about Certaincy?
Certaincy have a very friendly atmosphere and it is always fun to meet the colleagues on company activities.
I like that there are an equal amount of male and females at Certaincy, something that I have not experienced on my assignments.
This year Certaincy will not have a stand at CHARM 2018, but we will be around during both days. If you wish to meet us at Chalmers, please contact:
