Nowadays, he’s a front-end developer at MakoLab. However, like so many of us, he has his own store of student job stories. The person we’re talking about is Karol Zawisza… former “barman at this dance hall”, to quote rapper Sokół’s In the Car! Read Insights’ interview with him to find out how that happened, whether or not the job is as free and easy as it seems and what time a barman’s alarm clock goes off…
Michał, you’re in the final year of studying at the Krakow University of Technology for your master’s degree in data science. You first encountered MakoLab in 2018 when you did an internship with us, isn’t that right?
Yes. MakoLab’s the first company where I’ve had a serious job. The post-internship world isn’t an easy one. Most companies, when they see you’ve had three months’ experience, they never get back to you. Sometimes, the ones I did get to talk to didn’t even bother to get in touch again after we’d met. Dominik knew me from my internship and it just so happened that he was looking for someone to join the team. He’s someone you can talk to and he really does know what he’s doing.
What did you like most about the job?
The work was a delight… and great fun. Meeting new people and having the chance to create my own drinks and cocktails from a huge base of available ingredients… It’s amazingly appealing. I had the pleasure of working with students like me, who wanted to pay their rent and have some fun from time to time in the halls of residence.
At the moment, Michał has no plans to change the system he’s working to, so he’ll continue to be ‘our man in Krakow’. 😉
And we’re looking forward to the next internship programme because, as you can see, it certainly brings good results!
