What was your most memorable experience since you joined Signify?
M: In the beginning, I was kind of unaware of the role of light in sustainability, so the learning process throughout was very interesting, and as I got more familiar with my role, there were a few memorable moments. The most memorable moment, however, was being able to deliver the first samples that ever arrived in the UAE for Horticulture lighting to a Vertical Farm that I reached out to, and fortunately got informed that they were expanding. This meant a huge potential for our solutions, and I really felt the contribution that comes with creating meaningful connections through communication.
What motivated you to join us?
M: Although simply having the opportunity to work for Signify was attractive on its own, the turning point was when I watched one of their videos, and it immediately became evident that this is a company that is modern and professional. Being able to work in a modern and professional environment, means that there is a sort of flexibility that prioritizes productivity over conventional scheduled functioning, making it an environment I saw myself in.
Could you summarize your internship at Signify?
M: I feel like my time here has given me the chance to expand my experiences and explore myself. I do things that I never imagined I would. I became interested in fields far away from my original point of interests, which has helped me discover myself, and what I hope to build for the future of my career.
My journey throughout has been positive, I never felt out of place and I have met great people that make continuing my career at Signify terrific.
