Did you know that you can also start at Cegeka as a non-IT professional?

Valerie has a master's degree in Modern History and Law. That is not a major you spontaneously associate with IT. However, it is a field that requires important skills that match those of a good analyst. So no, you don't have to be an IT specialist to make a serious impact at Cegeka.


I was miles away from "the IT sector", both in terms of studies and in previous job experiences

I had the business knowledge but I knew nothing about IT. During my first week, IT terms like deploys, corrupt aggregates and feature toggle were completely unfamiliat to me. I was sometimes thinking, "How am I ever going to be able to do all this?".
But in the second week I noticed how quickly I picked things up and if I had any questions, I could always contact my team. The training Cegeka organizes internally for starting employees is fantastic! In such a short time, you get to know Cegeka as a company but you also learn different techniques that make you a better analyst. You become part of an incredibly supportive team and nobody expects you to do everything perfectly from day one. The team spirit that reigns at Cegeka and everyone wanting to help each other is a unique experience for me.
