When and why did you join BE-terna as a Business Consultant, what initially drew you to the company?
When i finished my Master’s
programme last year, I started looking at the job market. As I had done my
Bachelor’s degree and my Master’s in the field of logistics and supply chain
management, I was looking for a job in this broad field. As I found a really
interessting job vacancy as a Consultant at BE-terna with a focus on logistics
and production, I thought this could be a really good and interesting fit. In
the end I applied for the job and, with a slight delay due to the Covid-19
epidemic, started at BE-terna in May 2020. To be honest, I hadn’t heard
anything about BE-terna before I applied for the job as a Consultant. So why
did I decide to work for BE-terna? The reason is simply the first impression I
got. The job interview itself, the atmosphere in the office and during the
interview, along with the flexible working conditions convinced me.
What is the job of Business Consultant like at BE-terna? What is a typical day like for you?
To be honest, at the moment I guess it is to early to describe my typical day as a Business Consultant - it is just a little bit more than a month since I joined BE-terna. Currently I am trying to gain as much knowledge as I can in different ways. I take part in meetings with customers, get a lot of input in meetings with colleagues from different specialist areas, and of course I do a lot of studying to learn and figure out the functions and processes of Microsoft Dynamics 365.
However, what I can say so far is that the job of a Business Consultant at BE-terna is broadly diverse. As a Consultant you are in almost daily interactions with different customers and you have to deal with different tasks with individual requirements. So, all in all the job as a Consultant at BE-terna never gets monotonous because you are always being challenged by new customers, requirements, processes, tasks etc.
What are the pros and cons of being a Business Consultant?
Pros: flexibility, constant new challenges, self organisation, customer contact, never monotonous
Cons: I haven´t found any yet
What does it take to be a Business Consultant?
