On 28th April 2018 B EYE participated in Business in Practice, an initiative of AIESEC which aims to bring businesses and young people together, by giving them the opportunity to work on real business cases.

The case was presented at B EYE’s office before 15 students from different universities. The students had to work on a case on data analysis and operation with Business intelligence tools. All participants were divided into groups of 5 people and guided by a mentor, an employee of the company.  The event took nearly 6 hours, during which the participants had the opportunity to discuss the topic with team members and consult with B EYE specialists. The event ended with each of the teams giving a presentation with their BI solution.

On 29th April in an official ceremony at Inter Expo Center B EYE awarded all participants in the business case.

We would like to thank all the participants in the case for the excellent performance. We also thank AIESEC and the Business in Practice initiative for the partnership and the opportunity to meet all these young and talented people.

Kiril Milev, Stefan Grigorov and Margarita Montina participated in the business case and shared their impressions from the event.

Kiril Milev

Why did you decide to participate in our case?

The BI field is extremely interesting to me and I wanted to see how such industry-related issues can be tackled in a company like B EYE.

What was the most beneficial experience for you from the case? What knowledge did you gain?

The thing I remembered from the case, was how important it is to prioritize tasks and allocate assignments effectively within a team.

What were the emotions that you were you left with after the case?

My emotions were very positive towards the company and the people who organized the business case. The task was quite interesting and the solution that B EYE team presented was very curious.

What are the qualities you are looking for in a future employer?

The business activity of the company should be committed to something worthwhile, the management should uphold high standards and act professionally towards the employees, providing enough opportunities for development and motivation for the people working there.

Stefan Grigorov

Why did you decide to participate in our case?

It’s very important to have a connection between the business and the students and the case showed me how much you wanted to understand us. I came at B EYE because I didn’t know anything about the Business intelligence sector. I wanted to evaluate if this organization and sector can fit my values and needs.

What was the most beneficial experience for you from the case? What knowledge did you gain?

For me it was so important to understand that I can help others even if I am out of my comfort zone. I learned a lot about how we can use data. Most importantly I learned that we can use English language in our work while we communicate in Bulgarian and not get confused.

What were the emotions that you were you left with after the case?

I was introduced to a whole new sector and a different way of thinking. Also, I felt empowered because of one of our mentors, and his way of mentoring our group. I saw how mentoring should be done and I was surprised that this young man has so many good qualities and was very patient and friendly to us.

What are the qualities you are looking for in a future employer?

Vision and freedom is what I am looking for. We need leaders who are ready to override their ego and grow together in an environment where everybody in their team can take a leading position when the situation requires it. This is the freedom and responsibility to make decisions at the right moment and to have the opportunity to learn from your mistakes. A lot of companies around the world are too focused on profit to provide enough value for their customers and society. I believe that every company should dream for something that big that cannot be achieved in a lifetime. I want to work for that kind of company.

Margarita Montina

Why did you decide to participate in our case?

As a student who graduates Bachelor’s degree in Business Informatics and Communications this year, I’ve heard about your company and was interested to learn more. B EYE offers innovative and creative solutions and I really wanted to know how it feels to be part of your team.

What was the most beneficial experience for you from the case? What knowledge did you gain?

Participation in this case helped me gain more confidence in my knowledge and presentation skills. Presenting in front of an unfamiliar audience might bring anxiety, but I felt really relaxed in this environment. The reason was the friendly attitude of our mentors and the organizers of the event. Working with teams you don’t know might be overwhelming, but contrary to my expectations, it turned out that work can be very fun and enjoyable among young and intelligent people.

What were the emotions that you were you left with after the case?

I was left with very pleasant feelings after participating in the case. Your company has given me hope for the future professional development of all young and motivated people who seek inspiring career in the IT industry. I am very thankful to our mentors who supported us and had the patience to guide us. The workplace environment at B EYE office looks very harmonious and peaceful and the team is very united. This environment made us feel at ease.

What are the qualities you are looking for in a future employer?

As a young and dynamic person, I think employers should focus on hiring young professionals with out-of-the box and modern thinking. The employer should be fair, and remuneration should correspond to the requirements of the job position. The workplace environment and the technical equipment are, also, important. An advantage would be if the office is located close to public transport.
