I joined Capgemini in 2016 as a working student. My manager at the time saw early on that I was bringing a skill set with me, but I needed experience in working with clients. Nevertheless, she took me to customer workshops quite early, let me work independently, and showed me confidence and appreciation. This early experience has shaped me and my wish to start my career at Capgemini.
