Hello Community - from Oldham UK

Contributor

Hi. I am a new starter to both Untied Utilities and the Data/IT industry. I previously worked as a Teacher of Mathematics at secondary schools but needed more flexibility so then worked in a call centre ( which paid more than the teaching job T_T ). I had the flexible working arrangement but not enough challenge or development of technical skills. So I jumped ship to Trainee Data Layer developer at United Utilities and now I am working at home until further notice... the other end of the work-life spectrum.

I honestly was very glad to hear that this community environment was created as I think it can be awkward to ask question on the specific course forums. I hope to learn more about the industry besides the multitude of awards that Exasol are collecting as seen in LinkedIn. ๐Ÿ™‚

It's all about confidence. Instil them with confidence and they will be fine. Feel free to ask me about mathematics. I had recently been helping out friends relatives that were studying for their Secondary School qualification. The same applies for anyone is the Exasol community (not sure how I will help people from outside of England, different curriculum). ๐Ÿค”

Hi Thankx,

welcome to this community. Having a Teenager at home, I can see many more advantages NOT teaching mathematics to teenagers than just the flexiblity. I might need to ask for help if I can't remember how to multiply vectors... Looking forward to see many comments and questions from Oldham. ๐Ÿ˜

Connecting Customers, Partners, Prospects and Exasolians is my passion. Apart from that I cycle, listen to music, and try to understand what all those technical discussions really mean...

Welcome to the Exasol Community! I hope you'll find it at least as convenient as the former discussion forums we used in Exacademy ๐Ÿ™‚
