"As a third year student, I worked as an intern at Intel's IT lab in Nizhny Novgorod State University. Later, it helped me become an Intel intern and fulltime employee."
What's my career path been since joining Intel?
I first came to Intel as an undergraduate technical intern. Since joining Intel as a fulltime employee I've been a Software Engineer.
What's the biggest misconception that I think people have about working at Intel?
Some people think that Intel employees have a very crazy work schedule, spend a lot of time at their workplace with no opportunity for rest or weekends. Sure, sometimes we work in the evenings so we can have phone conversations with foreign colleagues because we are an international company. However, we can balance that with our work schedule flexibility.
Why do I think Intel is a great place to work?
Many reasons: good money and benefits, friendly people, a great corporate culture, great opportunities for students, and there are a lot of ways for each employee to grow and improve.
What do I do when I'm NOT at work?
I enjoy all kinds of activities: skiing and skating in winter; cycling and hiking in summer.
If I could live and work abroad for a year, where would I go?
The U.S.; there are a lot of places I'd like to visit there, such as Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon.
What's the most adventurous thing I've ever done?
I did a parachute jump from a height of more than one thousand meters! It was my first time I flew in a plane.
