Valerija Maluhina, VisionID’s recent graduate gives an overview of our graduate programme.
Since starting my professional journey on the graduate programme with VisionID in 2017, I have come a long way in developing my professional skills and career path. I have joined a team of true professionals who have supported me at every step to integrate into the business and team.
The interview process for the graduate programme consisted of three phrases, but, the 2nd phase which was a group-based activity with all graduates, really stood out for me. It was a fun and relaxed environment which allowed us to be more creative and showcase our ability to work effectively in a team. As interviews go, this experience was the best one I ever had as, it was easy-flowing and was graduate-friendly.
My induction and training period included a comprehensive training programme spanning over two weeks. This consisted of product training, group tasks, and an introduction to partners and colleagues from all departments.
Great support was provided throughout the induction and training period, which provided me with a great knowledge base to start my new role.
As a Graduate, I’ve started with VisionID as a Business Development Executive, which was a great opportunity for me to directly contribute to the company’s revenue and business growth. As a Business Development Executive, my role involves identifying new business opportunities through lead generation and developing relationships with existing and potential clients, but, as my role deals with clients directly it has also helped me gain valuable industry knowledge.
Not long into my role, I had the opportunity to support a company organised event which was run in collaboration with Google and Zebra Technologies, hosted in Google’s HQ in Dublin. This was a great experience for me and a fantastic networking opportunity.
From a personal perspective, as a recent graduate it’s important to me that I continue to develop my skills and develop professionally. This role has delivered on that as it has enabled me to further develop my skills, particularly around the areas of communication, time management, data analysis, database management and lead management.
Professional development is also integral to the company culture, and as a graduate this is a real benefit to know the company will support me in developing my career.
