Be open for opportunities ...

I have seen several opportunities today.

  • The interview with an Intern in the morning, who is bringing the skills we are looking for to help out with an urgent need
  • Extending the contract duration of another Intern, to give some more time for learning from colleagues
  • Reading the Master Thesis of a student and providing feedback to show some improvement potential
  • Writing an article about our Data & Analytics Meetup in alignment with the expectation of the department head, then asking a new joiner for feedback and getting a totally new and fresh perspective

Being open for opportunities expected/unexpected or obvious/hidden does help, add value and makes you happier 🤩👍.
