Insights into the team: My time at AcesoMed
Erfahrungsbericht Praktikum Marc
Marc, 23
Intern for software development
AcesoMed GmbH

What are you studying and why did you choose this direction?

“I’m studying for a bachelor’s degree in digital media in Fulda. Because I was enthusiastic about computers from an early age and I enjoy logical thinking, it was an obvious choice to go in the direction of computer science. The Digital Media degree program also brings a creative component, which is the perfect combination for me.”

Why did you decide to do your internship at AcesoMed GmbH?

“The first point of contact with AcesoMed was, of course, the job ad I came across online. It conveyed a casual startup atmosphere and I could imagine that I would have fun at work. At the same time, I found the medical technology field exciting because there are higher requirements here and there is no room for error. My digital job interview ultimately confirmed my first impression and my decision for AcesoMed GmbH was quickly made.”

What excites you about your job?

“In general, computer science and software development mean problem solving to me. You might get stuck for days and then suddenly come across the solution. That gives you a really good feeling. At AcesoMed, software development was my main task, but I also took care of design aspects and a usability study. That made my workday varied and I didn’t just sit in front of a screen. When it comes to usability, you have to put yourself in other people’s shoes and have direct contact with the user, which is something that is usually missing in computer science.”

What makes working at AcesoMed special for you?

“Due to the flexible working hours and the trust of my colleagues, I was able to arrange my work in the way that was most convenient for me. I was therefore able to organize myself independently with a clear conscience. I was also allowed to work independently on my actual tasks early on, while my colleagues were there to support me. I was constantly learning new things without being overwhelmed; I was virtually thrown in at the deep end, but in a good way. As far as the interaction among colleagues is concerned, I would say that there is a really relaxed atmosphere. If you have a question, you can just call across the table and everyone is available for a casual conversation. The bosses are part of the team in the daily work and everyone is equal, which gave me a good feeling.”

You wrote your bachelor’s thesis in our company. What was that like for you?

“Basically, it was important to me that my bachelor’s thesis not only revolves around theoretical considerations, but also has practical relevance. That seemed more meaningful to me, plus there’s more pressure to deliver good quality because the results of my thesis will be used in real life.”

“I agreed on the topic of my Bachelor’s thesis with my supervisor at AcesoMed and with my lecturer. I then worked on it myself, did research and started writing. To stay on track, I had reviews with my supervisor at regular intervals. On the one hand, he was able to give me feedback from the company’s point of view, and on the other, I benefited from his experience in scientific work. So I had a free hand in writing my thesis, but at the same time it was relevant to practice and close to the company. From my point of view, a win-win for me and AcesoMed.”

What tip do you have for job seekers and other interns?

“I would advise everyone to look a little longer and take a close look at the companies rather than making rash decisions. It pays off in the long run.”

Thank you very much for your active support, Marc. We are happy that you will continue to stay with us as a working student!
