What should startups at Centech know about the services available and the relationship between EDNA and Centech?
” They should be aware that design isn’t just about creating beautiful images. It’s first and foremost a field of innovation and creativity. Our students enter the job market with technical and human skills that are specific to working as a designer, such as empathy, listening skills, understanding and knowledge of the various issues and environments.
A designer’s profile complements the skill profiles in startups. Often, those working in startups have more technical backgrounds, such as in engineering. Combining technical skills and design skills creates a valuable symbiosis for successful projects that take into account both the technical aspects and the human/user aspects. Design entails thinking about the person who will use the solution in question, even before developing its aesthetics. ”
What aspect of working with students or at EDNA will you never get tired of?
” I’m going to answer that question a little differently. What I love about my job is the fact that no two days are ever the same (laughs)! It doesn’t involve a repetitive task, but rather a multitude of tasks aimed at providing students with a complete educational and professional training experience.
I find it incredibly rewarding to work with young people, future designers, senior professionals, startups and Centech. It creates an energy that I’ll never get tired of. The job requires a strong ability to adapt and understand my environment. My work is always about helping people, and my ultimate goal is to ensure that students have an outstanding professional, educational and personal experience, especially when it’s their first time abroad. Being able to guide all these people motivates me to get up in the morning! ”
