A successful journey
From student consultant at Ants to Manager at Netsize:
”I first got in contact with Ants when I was studying in Uppsala University. A friend of mine got asked if she knew anyone who might be interested in working part time for a newly started IT support consultancy company (i.e. Ants). As a broke student this was highly interesting for me. I called the company my friend was approached by. That was a great introduction to the real work where I helped companies with many diverse set of tasks.
Before I left Uppsala and the world of studies I got an opportunity to get hired by a company where I would be part time hired by Ants. That time I turned down the offer. A few years went by and by chance I saw a newsletter from Ants in my inbox. They were looking for a developer for a large telecom company that I had previously been working with as a client. It started with one interview with Ants and after that there were two more interviews with the company. I was back as an Ants consultant.
Surviving the financial crisis I said farewell to Ants once again and got employed by the telecom company. This company turned out to be a fantastic company. I have been working among great people for many years and where I’ve learned a lot. In 2012 I excelled my career and was offered a Manager position in the company which I gladly accepted.
My relationship with Ants became full circle when I met one of the founders of Ants (Carl-Johan Hamilton) in the hallway just a few months ago. The same person who hired me as a student many years ago. We started talking and once again they have now helped me with consultancy, but this time from the other side of the table.”
