I am an apprentice software engineer, Ask Me Anything!

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

Hello everyone !

I started my engineering school apprenticeship 2 years ago now. I'm studying computer engineering and also working for a large company as a junior software engineer.

An apprenticeship is very popular in France, you get a diploma but also real experience. The studying/working periods are splitted.

Don't hesitate to ask questions about an apprenticeship or the differences between my study and my job.

How did you land your apprenticeship? How are you balancing the work and your studies? Do you plan to be converted to full-time at the company?

 

Hello !

How did you land your apprenticeship?

I first did a two year university degree in computer science which I think is equivalent to a diploma of higher education/associate degree in UK/USA. During the two year I had an internship in UK as a full-stack developer which really helped me to get a contract when I applied for the engineering school in France.

How are you balancing the work and your studies?

Good question ! I always try to study just after work so I am still focused but sometimes it's really hard especially during exam periods as I don't have time for myself.

Do you plan to be converted to full-time at the company?

I already have opportunities to be full-time when i'll graduate (next year 🎉) but I would like to stay a year and then move to a startup. I am working in a big structure and I've always been interested in startups etc.

I hope it answers everything !
