What have you gained from working at Expert Network?

Working at Expert Network has offered me a unique opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. By being able to work with cutting-edge technologies, I have been able to enhance my technical skills and stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in my field. Furthermore, exploring new areas, like DevOps, has broadened my understanding of the tech industry and exposed me to a wider range of opportunities. Moreover, the relationships I've formed with my colleagues have added a human element to my work experience, making it more enjoyable and fulfilling. Having friends at work can create a positive and supportive work environment, which in turn can lead to better job satisfaction and motivation.

My connections with my colleagues outside of work have also helped to strengthen these relationships, creating links that go beyond just a professional setting.

Overall, my time has been rewarding and an enriching experience which allows me to develop both my technical and interpersonal skills.

How do you describe your work personality vs. your home life personality?

When I describe my work personality versus my home life personality, it's important to consider the differences in the environments and the expectations that come with each.

At work, I may present a professional conduct that showcases my skills, focus, and attention to detail. I am task-oriented, driven, and committed to meeting deadlines and achieving goals. My work personality often reflects my dedication to my job and my desire to succeed in my career.

In contrast, my home life personality may be more relaxed and informal. I let my guard down, unwind and simply relax. At home, I am more focused on spending time with my family, pursuing hobbies, and engaging in leisure activities that bring me joy and fulfillment.

Anyway, my work and personal life are closely intertwined, and any challenges or difficulties in my work can have a significant impact on my personal life.

As a result, I strive to excel in my work and achieve success, as it directly benefits my personal life. My dedication to improve my work performance reflects my desire to create a positive and fulfilling home life.

How do you define success in life?

Success in life is generally considered to be the accomplishment of one's goals and aspirations, resulting in a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction.

It can be subjective and vary from person to person, but it often includes elements such as personal growth, financial stability, and happiness.

For me, personally, success should include building and maintaining meaningful relationships, making a positive impact on others, and finding purpose and fulfillment in life.

What is the first concert you attended?

Attending my first Iron Maiden concert was an unforgettable experience.

I was just 16 years old when I saw the band perform in Bucharest, during the time when Blaze Bayley was the lead singer.

The energy in the arena was electric from the moment the lights went down and the crowd began to roar.

However, the excitement was briefly interrupted when Blaze Bayley confused the city he was in and said "Good evening Budapest."

This caused some members of the crowd to boo, but the band quickly regained the crowd's attention with their high-energy performance.

The stage was massive, with an incredible set design and pyrotechnics that added to the already electrifying performance.

It was a sensory overload, with the music, lights, and energy of the crowd all coming together in a unique and unforgettable way.

I was a teenager experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I'll never forget.
