“I’ve always had a soft spot for technology. After my previous job as a communication manager, I was looking forward to starting a new career in IT. I wanted to try something new, reorient myself and learn new skills. Shortly put: I was ready to step out of my comfort zone. And I did so at Xylos. I heard they were a modern company and a great place to work, and now I’m one of the Microsoft 365 Consultants in their Collaboration Team.
“My daily tasks? Well, I don’t really have a fixed routine to work through every day. My work schedule is determined by the requests submitted by our customers. No two days are alike and every day is dedicated to a specific project: I prepare trainings, create videos, configure intranet solutions... My projects do all have a common goal: to optimise professional collaboration for our customers. The variation in my job allows me to work independently. On top of that, Xylos is very open-minded. They give you every opportunity to develop your skills.”
“Of course, you’ll need some specific skills if you want to be a consultant. Every customer is unique, so make sure you’re able to adapt and listen to them attentively. If you love taking on challenges, that’s a plus. When I started out at Xylos, I conducted my first training in Dutch for about 20 people. It was definitely a thrilling experience, since I’m a native French speaker.”
