Who I am

YoungCapital over GiGi:

“Wij hebben Gigi leren kennen als een enthousiaste en gemotiveerde dame die staat te springen om haar carrière te starten in de wereld van Big Data/Business Intelligence. Tijdens haar studie is Gigi in aanraking gekomen met Python omdat ze een sentimentanalyse uit moest voeren. Ze werd enthousiast van het analyseren van grote hoeveelheden gegevens, maar had ook het idee dat er meer mogelijk was. Zo is haar passie voor Big Data ontstaan en is ze zichzelf verder gaan verdiepen in de wereld van de IT d.m.v. het lezen van blogs en volgen van online tutorials over o.a. SQL en Python. Ook binnen haar eigen bedrijf BrainWork Digital kan Gigi haar passie voor IT kwijt.”

  • GiGi heeft 5 jaar lang parttime verschillende werkzaamheden voor Datasoft Management Systems N.V. verricht. Ze beschikt over een flexibele en betrouwbare werkhouding; houdt zich aan afspraken; en komt na wat afgesproken is. Als problemen zich voordoen, lost ze deze op een creatieve manier op. Ik kan tevreden terugkijken op onze werkrelatie toen ze bij mij in dienst was en kan haar zeker aanbevelen.

  • Gigi heeft diverse Marketing-gerelateerde werkzaamheden succesvol opgepakt tijdens haar stage bij de Bijenkorf. Ze heeft zich onder andere verdiept in digitale content, printmedia en Social media. Een leergierige en enthousiaste collega!

  • Gigi was een creatieve hardwerkende student. Ze viel ondermeer op door haar analytische skills en oog voor detail. Haar zelfstandige en professionele werkhouding maakte de samenwerking bij haar scriptietraject een plezierige ervaring.
