"Intel is a great place to work because you always feel that your efforts are appreciated and recognized."
What is a cool opportunity or project that I’ve had while working at Intel?
I launched a series of Soft Skills Seminars on site at Intel conducted by Intel employees for external students of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Not only did I arrange all the seminars, but I chose new topics, negotiated with instructors and organized promotion of the events. These seminars give students an opportunity to get unique knowledge from Intel employees for free. It’s great to see students who have attended the seminars become Intel employees.
Do I participate in any volunteer activities at Intel?
I regularly participate in volunteering events at Intel. It’s a perfect chance, not only to get to know your colleagues better, but to make something useful for the world and people around us. One fun event I took part in was "One Fine Day in HR". We made beautiful trifles from beads together with children.
How do I socialize at Intel?
There are plenty of events arranged by Intel for employees: company parties, sports and volunteering activities, teambuilding events. Then, we’ve got internal forums and blogs where all employees can share opinions and views. And, of course, we always celebrate birthdays, important achievements and personal successes together with the team at Intel.
If I could live and work abroad for a year, where would I go?
Barcelona in Spain! I am a heat-loving person. But, of course, it’s not only that. Barcelona is an amazing city that has unbelievable architecture of Gaudi, rich history and exciting sense of the sea around.
What’s the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done?
I went canoeing and backpacking with a few friends through a remote part of Canada for two weeks. It was so much fun being out in the middle of no where, getting by with very little. That was amazing.
What’s the coolest gadget that I’d like to buy?
I need to get a new MP3 player. I still have my first one from 2000. It is 128 MB and holds 20 songs. It seems like only holding 20 songs should be illegal nowadays.
