And now – we’re proud to present to you the women of Factory!

What made you choose Factory among all other IT companies?

I decided to complete my frontend development internship at Factory, partly because there’s already a huge amount of information available from students who already completed their internship at Factory.

No one had to say anything negative about any part of the internship, so it was a big plus for me when choosing which company to go to.

How difficult did you find the internship and how did you overcome the challenges you faced?

The most difficult part for me was when I got a client inquiry about game development.
I needed to ask for additional information that wasn’t previously cited in the documentation which will specify what developers and designers need to do.

Critical thinking was what helped me solve the problem. Logical and critical thinking are the key requirements for anyone aspiring to be a project manager.

What do you think about our application process?

The application process included solving specific problems and an interview with Marketing manager Ana and Mirna from HR.
Solving these problems was a bit difficult because I wasn’t previously met with some marketing tools and tactics, but now I understand them much better.

The best thing about the interview is that I got feedback from my mentor Ana on my application tasks, and she pointed me in the right direction.

The interview went great and based on that, my mentor customized my internship program and adjusted it to my interests.

And how was your mentor during the internship?

My mentor, Matija, gets the highest possible grade! He’s a mentor who gladly transfers his knowledge to his students. I find his approach to be just great.

First, he gives us a task to solve it and if we hit some kind of dead-end, he jumps in and helps us with whatever we’re dealing with. And if we succeed to solve the task, he shows us if there’s another, possibly simpler approach for solving it.

That way, both the problem and the solution are much easier to understand.

What’s your take on our organization of remote internships?

The remote internship is conceived great, with a good number of weekly tasks and everyday communication with my mentor.

During the internship, you can really learn a lot; both about the profession itself and about the wider business landscape.

I was really impressed by the clients, projects, and the whole business which completed my, already positive view on Factory.
