Interview with CTK Alumni Frans

Chalmers Teknologkonsulter would like to introduce Frans Holmgren, a bright CTK alumni who talked with us about his reasons behind applying to CTK, and how that prepared him for today.

Where do you work and what do you do?  

I’m working at Burt as a Sales Engineer and Customer Success Manager. The first part of my job is to help our sales department to design solutions and create proofs-of-concept for potential customers. The second part aims to help to make our clients being successful in using our product. That can be everything from tweaking their solution to educate them in using it or helping them with various issues. 

What is the best advice you would give somebody that is thinking about joining CTK?

Do it! Chalmers have great educations but is missing the real world experience. To plan and work in real projects with a client on the other end is very different from any projects you will do at Chalmers and it will prepare you for your professional life when you are done with your studies. One of the few places were you can get this experience before starting to work full time is at CTK which is why I think it is a great idea to join CTK. 

How did your work at CTK prepare you for the work you do today?  

My time at CTK helped me to manage customer relations in a more successful way.
I also got to try a lot of different technologies which increased my knowledge and skill in software development. The high pace and real deadline thought me to perform under pressure and create value quickly for a client.
