Coding Factory is a yearly organized recruiting event by aTalent Recruiting. In 2017, there were 50 pre-selected participants (mostly software developers) and five Finnish IT-companies: F-Secure, Futurice, Qvik, Relex and Solita. My task was to host a 30-minute panel discussion and warm up the atmosphere. During the discussion, the panelists revealed some rare facts about their company cultures.

EVENT HOST & ORGANIZER

During my years as a student, I was involved in organizing for more than 30+ big student events with hundreds of attendees. I had a great chance to practise my public speaking skills as a host for 15+ events.

One of my favourite happenings was Sales Night 2014,  when I co-hosted and co-organized a sales-oriented evening for 200+ business students in Helsinki on 29th of October 2014. I took care of the partnerships with Google and small product sponsors.

It was an exciting journey accompanied by amazing people from KY - Aalto University Business Students.

ACTOR IN A MUSICAL THEATRE

I was an acting in a musical theatre production with 1900+ viewers. For the actors, the project lasted from October 2014 to March 2015. Our production crew of over 60 people consisted mainly of students in Aalto University School of Business. We held the premiere in Helsinki on 7th of February 2015. Altogether, we had six shows in Helsinki and a tour of three shows in other cities in Finland (Mikkeli, Lappeenranta & Turku). I was voted as "The Talent of the Year" by our crew.

Graduate speech

I graduated from upper secondary school (high school) with excellent grades and I was thus asked to give the speech in our graduation party on 4th of June, 2011.

I remember that I was horrified - it was the scariest thing I had done so far.
