You don't need to know it all from day one

What brings a smile to your face at work?
When I make a difference and succeed with things. It could be anything from clearing up a minor detail at a meeting to implementation of a major business strategy. That's pretty cool. I get satisfaction from knowing that I'm actually using the skills I gained during my studies. And both in my graduate job and current position, there's the kick of achieving results through other people.
What would you tell someone in two minds about applying?
I usually tell people with a degree in IT that they don't need to know all the ins and outs of banking to work in IT at Danske Bank. The reason is that the graduate programme goes a long way in equipping you for the future after you have gained your degree. Besides, you get the specialist training that you need to make your way as a working professional. One thing I appreciate is the focus on personal development alongside the training. Plus, in a massive organisation like Danske Bank, you have the unique opportunity to build up a wide network in no time at all.
What's your best advice for upcoming graduates?
You don't need to know it all from day one. It comes as you go along, and there is room for mistakes. There is a focus on personal development and networking, which an ordinary position doesn't exactly line up for you. Make the most of the fact that you join the graduate programme with other people in the same situation.
