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!

Ellinor Wihlborg graduated with a bachelor's degree in information systems and now works as a Business intelligence analyst at Arriva in Copenhagen.

“It occurred to me that we actually have Copenhagen nearby, so I started looking for jobs there. Most of the adverts said that you had to be fluent in Danish and I'm not, but I wanted to try anyway. After only a week and a half, the first company started calling me. The following week I had the first interview, the next week the second interview and three days later I had a job!“

Arriva is responsible for most of the public transport in Denmark. Ellinor works there with their decision-making system, among other things.

“I mainly work with our decision-making systems by producing analyses that are used for various reports, but I also help to further develop our programs. I maintain our databases and data warehouse and make sure that the right data is input. There must be a correct infromation base that is then used for the reports, such as how much diesel has been used this month or how many drivers we need next year. It will be a foundation that I help to produce for the decision-makers.“

“It is important to make contacts during the programme and to dare. Dare to make contact. Dare to ask. Dare to network. Leave business cards, ask if there is a project you can be involved in or work extra with,“ Ellinor advises.

“Of course, the language is a bit difficult at first, but my colleagues are very understanding and now I study Danish two evenings a week, so it has worked out well. I got a job in the area that I find interesting and I really enjoy it!“
