This time we would like to introduce our UX Coordinator, Alab Narang from India. Alab will spend 5 months at GRN between April and August. This has been his first work experience in Prague, and we hope not the last.

Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?

I was born in 1991 in Ranchi, India but I moved to New Delhi where I attended primary school. After primary school I moved to Singapore for high school and then I moved back to India to study Software Engineering at the Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. Following that, I continued with my masters’ studies in Finland.

What are your plans after finishing your internship at GRN Czech Republic?

Actually I am staying on to join the GRN team in starting up a new division offering UX services to clients.

Did you have any troubles moving away from home and adapting to a new environment?

Not at all, I was very lucky finding a good place to stay and also my housemates helped me a lot with that so I didn’t miss Finland too much. I got used to Prague easily, its culture, its people and its food.

Do you think working at GRN Czech will help you in your professional career?

Definitely. It is helping me to gain real time experience in UX, which I love, and I am getting a lot of exposure in working with other businesses to help them to improve their results.

So, Martina, could you please tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?

 

I am a 21 year old student from the Czech Republic and always interested in traveling and meeting new people. That is why I am off for an exchange in China for one semester. Before my internship here in Prague with GRN, I was living and studying in Rotterdam, where I completed my Bachelors degree.

What brought you to Prague and how do you like it?

 

Well in fact I am from Prague and my parents live here, so the reason that I was looking for an internship in Prague. This has been an interesting and exciting opportunity for me. Even though I am from the Czech Republic, in Prague I always find something new to discover. There are so many beautiful places to visit!

 

What are your main job responsibilities at GRN?

I’m taking care of the social media channels of GRN and everything related to that, such as writing blog posts, reading interesting articles to share, searching for pictures and quotes and so on. I’ve also contributed to the updated social media strategy for GRN and in helping to come up with new ideas for the future. I was also responsible of finding my successor, which included reviewing CVs, organizing interviews with the potential candidates and dealing with the whole recruitment process until the day that she would arrive.

Do you think working for GRN will help you in your business career?

Definitely, international experience is always valuable and it’s something that I believe will differentiate me from other candidates when I’m searching for a job after graduation. And also, it’s an advantage for me to see the recruitment process from another perspective.

What is your plan after this internship at GRN?

This question is not so easy to answer because I have a lot of plans from today to implement in the future. Now, after having gained some very good experience in GRN Czech in working with many people, and where I had opportunities to do varied kinds of activities with friendly and professional people, first my plan is to not stop but to keep the momentum going and get much more knowledge and experience. So, I am planning to go to China for an exchange program for the fall semester in order to recognize new people, new culture and to gain new international experiences, which will help me to accomplish my goals in the future and to become professional at my field of study.
