In Spring 2023, Daniel graduated with a bachelor's degree in information systems from the Department of Informatics at Lund University. We interviewed him about his successes in the labour market.

(The below interview is translated from Swedish)

Tell us about what you do today!
I work at Montell & Partners, which is a consulting firm specialising in Management and IT. I started working here part-time during my last semester and went full-time as soon as I finished my studies. In my role as a consultant, I have been at Tetra Pak in Lund, helping them with various internal IT projects. During my 10 months here so far, I have worked with in-depth data analysis, full-stack software development, and project management. At the moment I am integrating/developing systems for simulation of factory and machine lines!

What is the main reason you work with what you do?
My passion for consulting stems from how I am as a person and the type of environment I perform best in. I like juggling several tasks at the same time and being able to jump from project to project. Sometimes you are thrown into projects and need to quickly adapt and learn things you have never encountered before. This type of environment is something I specifically looked for when I was looking for a job - an environment where I get to wear many hats and have a wide range of responsibilities.

How did the Department of Informatics and Lund University School of Economics and Management prepare you for working life and a career in your field?
I would say that the Department of Informatics prepared me extremely well for my career as a consultant. As mentioned earlier, it is important to be adaptable and have the ability to learn new technologies and processes. The Bachelor's Programme in Design of Information Systems is not exactly a programme that makes you an expert in a specific technological field, rather you learn the basics of a wide range of IT and business areas. This knowledge provides an overview that makes it easy to identify and solve problems, while you become very good at quickly immersing yourself. These qualities are highly valued and sought after in most professions, not just in consulting.

What advice would you give yourself if you started your studies now?
Get involved in networking and show people that you are ambitious and knowledgeable. When your professional life starts, it pays to have people see you as someone they would like to work with. I have several examples of recommendations that have gone very far among classmates simply because they had great collaborations during their studies.

Tell us about your expectations for the future.
I think we are entering a very interesting period where concepts such as "AI" and "LLM" may shake up many industries. The Department of Informatics has undoubtedly been a leader in preparing its students for this. I would like to think that I have the best possible education to deal with the types of problems and obstacles that companies and organisations will face in the future, and I am curious and excited to help overcome them.

What do you prefer to do outside of work?
If I'm not working, you'll probably find me at the gym or with my partner and my dog!

Any hidden talent?
I do a very good impression of Stitch from Lilo & Stitch!
