Internships while in Universty with Telecom Company

Tell me a little bit about yourself!

“Hello. My name is Kenan Hadzihasanovic, I am 22 years old, and I am a Software Engineer for Bicom Systems. I studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Tuzla and have a passion for learning about new technologies, learning new engineering techniques, and developing solutions.”

What motivates you?

“My motivation comes from my desire to be up to date with recent innovations. I hope that maybe someday I will be the person that will create innovations and solutions for everyday life!”

What did you like most about your internship?

“Probably my amazing mentors. They provided me with so much information and taught me what I needed to learn, to be successful today. My internship was a very important experience, and I think without it, it would be challenging to overcome new tasks.”

Why did you choose to work in the telecommunications industry?

“The telecommunications industry is the core of today’s society. Imagine what our lives would look like without it. Pretty scary. I chose this industry because it is constantly growing, and I want to be apart of that consent progress. It also helps that telecom connects with other industries, so I can also learn about them.” 

You’re right! It is scary to think of a world without telecommunications. So, why did you choose to do an internship at Bicom Systems?

“I chose to do an internship with Bicom Systems because they provided me with an opportunity to make a huge leap in my career. Working at Bicom Systems gives me knowledge about not only the telecommunications industry but also the software industry and the IT sector as a whole.”

“I also was familiar with the fact that if I took an internship at Bicom Systems, I would learn from the very best. That turned out to be true!”

Employee from Telecommunications CompanyWow! I am sure your mentors will be happy to hear that. Out of all the technology we use, what most excites you?

“The virtualization technology, I think is the most exciting! Take, for example, our product PBXware. We can create as many instances as we want, manage them, update them, and distribute them, all in a single product. None of this would be possible without virtualization technology.”  

Aside from our products, what kind of work would make you excited to get out of bed on a Monday morning?

“That kind of work that provides me with an opportunity to create and develop new solutions and features in products. Or even to create new products. That kind of work not only is useful, but it also develops me as an engineer and makes me better in my field of science.”

If you had to choose between being invisible or being able to fly, what superpower would you choose?

“I would have to say, being able to fly. Flying would allow me to be constantly on the move and active. I could explore, research, and learn so much!”

What do you like to do outside of work?

“I love to play tennis! When I have spare time, I always try to be involved in some social activities. Aside from sports, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and girlfriend.”  

What would you say to future interns or people thinking of applying for an internship?

“Everyone who has an opportunity to become an intern has to become one! It will:

  • give them an overview of the industry
  • teach them about recent technologies 
  • will provide them with beneficial knowledge
    for when they become employees.”
