By Amir Temimović, QA Engineer
Greetings to all of you who are reading this! :)
My name is Amir Temimović and this is a short story about my time as a Klika intern.
Where to begin... Hmm...
I am a final year student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Banja Luka, Department of Software Engineering. As a young person, without previously having any experience working in a serious environment that is related to my professional field, I was looking for an opportunity to start my IT career. I didn't have to wait too long... One day, while scrolling my Home page on Facebook, I run into an interesting article that the offical page of my Faculty has posted.
The title „Klika internship – JOIN US NOW“ really caught my attention.
Encouraged by my parents and friends, I decided to apply for it. Ten days after I have submitted my application for internship, I got a call from Klika's Talent Scout, Harun. The news were good and I was invited to an interview for a QA position. The interview itself, went above my best expectations. Emrah, Klika's expert in Automation Testing, was in a charge of testing my knowledge about QA, APIs and OOP. It was an absolute pleasure talking with him and Harun. Friendly atmosphere, nice conversation and I manage to get some great advices from Emrah as well.
Couple days later, on a hot and sunny Friday afternoon, my phone rang again. It was Harun with some great news again: I am a first intern in Klika's Banja Luka office. WOW, what a great way to start my summer!
And so my Klika journey began...
First week of internship was held in office in Sarajevo. As soon as I got into the office, I knew it was the right decision to join the Klika internship. Such a friendly, relaxed but working atmosphere. Everyone was so polite, calm, always ready to answer your question, help you out, give you advice...I loved it! And then the best thing, getting to know other interns, my mentor Nataša and our Scrum Master and Product Owner Adha. Everything was so well organised and I couldn't wait to start working. During the first week, we had presentations about technologies and environments that will be used during the internship.
Day by day and Friday came really quick – it was time to get back to Banja Luka. Second week of Klika internship, my first day in Banja Luka office.. I was a little bit nervous but then I met those folks on the 4th floor.. Again, everyone so polite, social, helpful and the atmosphere was phenomenal.
But it was time to start working. Our first Sprint Planning has came. Everything was so new to us but thanks to our menthors and Adha, we manage to deal with it succesfully and we started working on our DiNero app. Every day, I had two daily meetings, one with QA team and our menthor Natasa and the other one with the full team and our PO, Adha. They were held at 10 AM and 10:30 AM respectively. At those meetings I would give my daily status of what has been done, what I plan to do and tell if I have any issues that are blocking me from doing my work. Soon, it was time for our first Sprint Demo. It went pretty good, and we continued our work on DiNero.
Time flew by really fast.. from bug to bug, daily to daily, sprint to sprint, first month was over. Our team chemistry and communication were only getting better and better, and so was our work. After every Sprint Demo, we would get positive critics from Klika's employees and they praised our work. It felt really good hearing such thing and I used to as a motivation to work harder.
Soon, second month of Klika internship has passed, and I was getting a little bit sad that this awesome journey is coming to an end. And then, again Harun with some good news... job interview is the next step. Klika's QA Manager Dino, and one familiar face, Emrah, were the ones waiting for me at the interview. I learned so much from that interview, got a lot of great advices that will stick with me throughout my entire QA career.
Six days after the interview, around 4 PM, I got a call from Darjan, Klika's Head of HR.
My heart skipped a beat when he told me that I got the job! It took me some time to process that, but yeah.. I am a Klika employee, I made it!
I would like to thank to Klika for giving me the oportunity to do my internship in such a great and perspective company. It was an absolute pleasure and I am looking forward to work as Klika employee! Thank you Harun, Darjan and Olja for being so helpful and telling me only good news! :D
Special thanks goes to our Scrum Master and Product Owner, Adha. It took a lot of patience to answer to dozens of my questions every day and always be there to solve any issues that were blocking our work. The way she was handling some though and complicated situations was flawless.
My mentor, Nataša.. The most important figure for my development as a QA engineer during this internship. Always there for me and my team, selflessly giving advices, talking with us every day, leaving her work to help us, answering to our questions. It was an absolute delight to learn from you. I hope that future interns will have the same luck as me. Thank you Nataša!
And I can't forget to mention Danijela, who was my mentor for 2 weeks while Nataša wasn't there. Thank you Danijela for being so helpful! Thanks to both of you for being such great persons!
And what can I say about my intern friends. It was a pleasue working with you and I'll surely miss those 10:30 AM daily sessions. Until next time and a new project!
To those of you, that might get doubtful whether or not to apply for KLIKA PRAKSA.. just DO IT! You won't regret it! It turned to be one of the best decisions that I have made. It might be the same for you!
