- Can you share your history at Roche?
Hi I am Amy, a Data Scientist at Roche. I first joined Roche back in 2018 on an Industrial Placement Year which I took between the second and third years of my undergraduate degree. I studied BSc Physics at the University of Hertfordshire but knew very early on that being a “physicist” wasn’t for me so I wanted to explore my new found interest in programming gained from university. After my Industrial Placement, I returned to university to complete my degree before searching for full time work. I considered several options but knew deep down that I had a great time at Roche and realistically that is where I wanted to be. I have since been back full-time 3 years still in the Data Sciences department and still love my job!
- What did you value the most of your internship?
My internship taught me so much about the professional world of work from the very basics of what’s appropriate to wear in an office all the way to how to give a good presentation or chair a meeting. I also gained so many soft skills that really benefited me returning to university and beyond from networking to time management to working effectively as part of a team. I couldn’t have done any of this without the wonderful support of my colleagues at Roche and their willingness to take time to mentor and support me and give me so many opportunities I never imagined I would be trusted with as an intern. I also really valued Roche’s passion for diversity
- What would be your main advice for anyone wishing to start their internship with us?
My main piece of advice for anyone wishing to start their internship with us is to just take every opportunity as it comes and follow your passion. Putting myself out there and pursuing something I was passionate about really gave me confidence and certainty in what I wanted from a job in the future which allowed me to enter the world of work assured I was doing something I really wanted to do everyday.
