You don’t necessarily need to have prior experience in IT to begin a career as a Test Consultant. You can also learn on the job, and Aaron is the perfect example of that! After his studies in Communications Management, he started working in the IT sector, and he hasn’t regretted that for a second.

Hi Aaron. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. From communications to IT, that sounds exciting. Tell us all about that! 😊
With great pleasure! After studying Communications Management, which I still have fond memories of, I started working for a market research firm. That’s when I realized that my career aspirations lay elsewhere. The field of IT sparked my interest, leading me to start working at the Technical Helpdesk of a telecom operator. Although I enjoyed the work itself, I missed the interaction with other colleagues. It was a very large company, with little room for personal contacts. As a result, after a year, I started exploring other options.
And that’s how you ended up at Itineris.
That’s right. I came across the Test Consultant vacancy through an IT recruitment agency. What stood out to me, was the comprehensive onboarding program that Itineris offered, including training to become a Test Consultant. Additionally, the prospect of becoming a permanent employee after a year of working with the company was very appealing to me, so I decided to go for it.
Were there any other factors that made you take the leap?
Yes, even though Itineris is no longer a small company with more than 450 employees, the work environment remains cozy and familiar. I also liked the job content: ensuring that our UMAX software solutions are delivered with high quality and meet the needs and expectations of our customers. That’s something I wanted to sink my teeth into!
