Embarking on your first job journey can be a mix of excitement and nerves. Transitioning from the University to the professional world can be a shaping moment in your future career. At Atlantbh, we understand these feelings all too well. That’s why our internship program isn’t just a learning experience – it’s a transformative stepping stone towards your career. We asked five of our ex-interns, now Atlanters, what lessons they took from Internship to the real (work) world. 

Working on a (real) project

Internship projects at Atlantbh are based on the projects our engineers work on daily – without the added stress of meeting client deadlines. That makes working with other interns fun and dynamic, but also lets you in on how it is to work in a team. Amar was our Product Manager intern, and he says this, together with mentorship, were the most helpful experiences for starting his career. His mentor taught him the whens, hows and whys in the decision-making during the development of the new feature. After every month of the Atlantbh Internship, together with other Interns, he had a feedback session, where he got advice on what to improve in the next month. 

Being a part of a productive team

Dženeta found her Atlantbh internship valuable because she learned how to work effectively in a team. The difference between her studies and the Internship is that interns at Atlantbh collaborate on their projects. Each team member has a specific role in building complex applications. This experience taught her the importance of teamwork and working in a productive, Scrum-based environment.

Never forget the edge case

Before she became a Junior Software Engineer at Atlantbh, Nađa’s biggest lesson as an intern was that having functional code is not enough. Always think about how to make it as simple as possible, format it, and never forget the edge cases. She worked hard to implement these steps in her work process. Her biggest help was her mentor – who showed her how to achieve these goals. Nađa says that her University projects would have been much easier if she knew more about GitHub branches then. 

What is important (and what is not)

Ferid faced a challenge as a Data Analytics Intern: separating important data from unimportant data after conducting analyses. Learning to view data results professionally was an eye-opener for him. This skill continues to benefit him as he works as a Data Analyst today.

That one thing that stands out

During the Internship, you’ll gain knowledge and experience in various areas. However, there’s often one skill that stands out because you use it every day when you start your career. For Jasmina, a UI/UX designer, that standout skill was her research on designing tables. Her knowledge of design practices and how to plan and create concepts in the design system remains crucial in her real projects at Atlantbh today.

If you are ready for new experiences and knowledge, apply here until 11.9.2023. and become the next Atlantbh Intern!
