Ecco la storia di Christian Vuerich, Software Engineer in Bloomberg a Lugano. USI Degrees: Master of Science in Informatics, 2018 e Bachelor of Science in Informatics, 2015.

Come hai iniziato la tua carriera?

I kind of stumbled on Bloomberg. I simply found an opening online for a position in London. During the interview process, I had a chance to start to know the company and its culture. After the interview process, I was sure that Bloomberg was a great opportunity.

Perché hai scelto di lavorare presso Bloomberg?

I wanted to work for a company that would allow me to continuously learn and improve my skillset. Bloomberg offers many training programs, sponsor tech conferences and has employees collaborating in many open source project and programming language committees.

In cosa consiste il tuo ruolo?

Software engineer. Partly maintaining existing code bases and partly designing new software solution.

Quali sono, a tuo parere, le qualità necessarie per fare carriera in Bloomberg?

Communication, collaboration and flexibility. Projects and duties change and evolve. Being able to quickly adapt and react to these changes is an important aspect of the job.

Quali sono secondo te le caratteristiche/gli aspetti positivi dell'USI?

I believe that the small environment is invaluable. Students easily get chances to openly discuss with professors, which over being a great opportunity is a great way to learn how to share your ideas and compare with experts of different fields. Which in my opinion is very valuable in the workplace.

Quali competenze e/o capacità acquisite durante il tuo percorso di studi all’USI sono risultate utili nella tua carriera professionale?

I believe that all the practical projects throughout both the bachelor and master program prepare students for the industry. Theoretical knowledge is fundamental, but the know-how gained with those experiences is just as important for a successful career.

Cosa potresti suggerire ad un neolaureato USI che deve entrare nel mondo del lavoro?

You are well prepared, do not settle for the first opportunity you find. Look for what a company can do for you and not only how you can fit their position. And most important, do not be afraid to make mistakes.
