Xián Simón Varandas, DataCenter office.

1. Why did you choose Altia for your internship?
I studied the FP in Network Information Systems Administration in Vigo, and Altia is a benchmark company. In addition, the Datacenter is very close to my house, and it seemed like a good opportunity to get involved and continue learning in the systems area.

2. How were your first days?
Good! One of the best things about the Datacenter is teamwork: all colleagues are available to help and support you in whatever you need. The first days they explained to me how they worked, with which clients, what their day-to-day was like… I had a very good adaptation and in a short time I was already familiarizing myself with the different systems that they use and managing some tasks autonomously.

3. How was your experience in the AltiaDigitalHub program?
There really is a difference between being focused on your studies and getting to a professional environment, and the experience has been very positive. Little by little I deepened and learned more technologies and tools, and encompassing more complex tasks, working hand in hand with fellow experts who guided and supported me.

4. Did you imagine it like this?
The truth is that I did not know very well what to think before starting the internship. Getting in touch with the world of work was very good because the whole team helped me and I was able to see how this sector works. In addition, the Datacenter is very complete and has many professional possibilities.

5. What do you think you've evolved into?
I think I have evolved in everything, but I would emphasize that I learned to face professional challenges and approach problems from different angles, go further.

6. If you had to define your experience in 3 words, what would they be?
Learn to move!
