That’s amazing, so your team really invested in you, great! So, tell me what are some things you are very proud of in your new job and what advice can you give other people seeking jobs at Signify?
S: I’m really proud of being part of the innovation department, working with 3D printed luminaires that besides offering incredible possibilities to customers, such as allowing them to design their own luminaire by changing colors, shapes and textures. We print them in the Netherlands which allows us to deliver fast and most importantly, they are a sustainable product. I’m very pro-environment and working with products of high quality that contribute to the circular economy, feels good.
What advice can you give to interns looking to make it at Signify?
S: I have met and worked with a lot of interns and some were amazing, and some were a bit lost, not knowing how to contribute to their team in a meaningful way. If you feel that this happens to you, ask for help. Find a coach within your team/department or someone related to your job title. Signify colleagues are always happy to help and support each other.
Be proactive, take your ideas and convert them into projects with goals, deadlines, assets, and when you get the chance, share them with your team. There is always room for experimentation. Don’t be shy and if it doesn’t work, change something and do it again, because this is your opportunity to explore, grow and shine!
