Oh my. When I just checked my bank account I loved my life. First month over at HP in Germany and I have to say I love working here. I work a lot and the material is not easy but your work is rewarded big time. At the moment I really have to think if I want to make my own thing after finishing school next year. This question is posing some serious trouble in my head. On the one hand I love to be on my own and follow my own ideas. On the other hand I’m pretty young and nobody would take me seriously if I wanted to sell them something. But it’s an ongoing process and I can’t disappoint the people who are relying on me right now…
I really love this internship! Three weeks in the job and I had access to the datacenter of Vodafone D2 one of the Big Three in germany. THE datacenter where almost every call is routed, every SMS is processed. This was just impressive. Unfortunately I’m not allowed to tell otherwise they have to kill me
Last weekend I’ve been to Stuttgart to visit my godfather and family. I really enjoyed the weekend and I’m back to work now. My project is proceeding. Today we made a minor step to figure out which things we need and what the scope of our project is. Now we can discuss this with the colleagues and order the hardware we will need. It’s exciting to be here and to get to know the work in such a really big company.
Yeah, now I’m in my 4th day @ HP and I think I like it here much. We are in Germany. Usually everybody in germany is very formal and “steif”. But here it is company policy to be informal to each other which makes the working climate a lot better (even I’m working in a share environment).
The project I’m working on is very interesting. Unfortunatly I’m not allowed to disclose any information (oh my I had to sign a lot of papers to ensure that). But I can tell you this is really cool. The first few days I had to read a lot of technical documenation about standards and technical recommendations. But slowly I’m getting into the process and can work out some things.
Stay tuned. A lot more when I finally have internet at my place!
My first days @ HP in Ratingen are very interesting. The project I’m working on is so bleeding edge that I’ve to ready a lot of documentation. Today (my 2nd day) I already had a telephon conference with some tech guys from France.
It is just crazy. The systems and the workplaces. More very soon. No internet except my GPRS mobile until now in my new place…
