The Mensa high IQ society in Hungary has started a series of sessions dedicated for showing the various IT professions in detail on a career day. As a proud member of the society I have the pleasure to show what do I do as Software Engineer and Solution Architect for Enterprise Resource Manager systems, what are my day-to-day activities with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
This series of events are organized in order to help people who are just about to make the decision of their life about what to become when they graduate after high school. This is also to aid people, who are considering a career change. As a Mensa HungarIQa career day speaker my task is to talk about what skillsets are required to be successful in this corner of IT, what are the advantages and difficulties chasing a path like this in the industry, what perks and benefits do we get.
I also plan to demonstrate a range of tools that we use on a daily basis to show how wide range of knowledge one has to have that can be applied to a multitude of other jobs in case they consider a switch again:
- business processes (finance, supply chain, distribution, manufacturing, etc.)
- DevOps / Version control
- Visual Studio development
- Microsoft Azure
- Virtualization and systems management / monitoring
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning models
- Web technologies (REST, OData, etc.)
- and others…
