When it comes to doing a project for my degree it can be split into two main categories, Create something or get a work placement.
Work placement appeals to me for many reasons. I feel it’s a massive foot in the door to be able to get hands-on work experience in your desired field, even if it’s just basic tasks. My main interest in data security in the cloud and how cloud vendors handle data, and for me to get an opportunity to see it first hand compared to doing a study on it, is worth so much more to me.
I personally am a hands-on learner compared to someone giving me a textbook which I will remember 10% of if that. Being a people person I love interacting with other workmates and discussing what is going on and how things could be optimised and improved, and how they see the future of information technology and cloud computing.
I have applied at one place and hope to confirm my placement with them, and it’s in a place I would love to work in from what I have read about and heard from them.
