Junior consultant, working for T&S since March 2019
Sylvain, what is your academic background?
After obtaining my scientific bachelor’s degree, I wondered whether I should do a STAPS (Science and techniques of sports activities) or a DUT GEII (Electrical engineering and industrial computing). I chose the second option because it offered more exciting opportunities.
I validated my M1 in Home Automation and my M2 was specialized on embedded systems.
I wanted to improve my knowledge of English and that’s why I took the opportunity to work at T&S in Germany. I started with a 4-month internship, followed by a VIE and today I have a permanent contract with the company.
How did your working life at T&S begin?
When I joined T&S, I had the choice between two projects. I chose to work on the DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) and I had to test a software for the LABCAR.
At the beginning, we were under pressure. We arrived on a critical project with a lot of expectations. During my 4 months internship, I was in the implementation part on the scripting part. Despite the pressure, we were accompanied, trained and supported by all T&S colleagues.
I have improved my English and I have become more independent. I also had the opportunity to travel to Berlin, Munich, Düsseldorf with other T&S colleagues.
Now, I work on commercial missions in addition to my usual tasks. That is one of my choices, because I like the commercial part too.
What do you like most in your job?
I enjoy working in an international environment and meeting multicultural people. It is enriching but you have to adapt the working methods.
I have been able to preview models that are not yet unveiled. That’s why I like the automotive field, we work on concrete things that can impact the daily lives of many people!
Finally, I also had the opportunity to participate in company events of the client. I took part in their internal karting championship but the level is very high.
