Ormit Talent & ASML alumni

When I was studying I did not give much thought to where I would best fit as a professional in the corporate world. The Ormit Talent & ASML traineeship allowed me to explore my potential work identities in three unique ways. Firstly, I got to explore different departments at ASML; from finance and tax to project management. Secondly, fellow trainees pushed me outside of my comfort zone and helped me discover things about myself that I did not know. Last but not the least, through challenging but rewarding discussions with my leadership coach, I gained awareness about my strengths and weaknesses. For a person with a mathematics background, it was a surprise to find out that I excelled in the intersection between people and content. This traineeship helped me realize the importance of reflection and personal development in my leadership journey.
