It has only been a few days since our new intern joined us and we really don’t know much about him. Panagiotis Siokas, a web developer that we gladly welcomed in our team, will stay with us for his 3-month internship. It’s about time to get to know him.
You are the latest intern to join the Agro-Know team. Would you like to share some info on how you found us and what drew your attention in the Agro-Know job opening ?
I found Agro-Know via Atlas, an online internship research tool for senior students. Although I had a few other interviews for an internship, what really draw my attention and decided that Agro-Know was the one for me was, first their purpose as a company, and second the work environment. Nothing compares to a helpful and friendly environment.
I am a senior IT Engineering student at “TEI of Central Greece” located in Lamia. I joined Agro-know as a Junior Web Developer intern. My role on the team will be to assist with the web development using the available tools in order to develop highly professional webpages.
What do you find interesting in your work with Agro-Know so far? Do you see any challenges in your daily routine at the office?
No, so far no challenges, and the daily routine flows just fine. Time passes by without noticing as you always have something to do. What it really interests me is the work of Agro-Know with all these global networks out there, connecting education, research and data in the field of agriculture, food and environment.
You are involved in the OPS team of Agro-Know; do you feel that your background helps you with your current tasks?
I feel like there will be no “very hard” challenges on the way for me, as what I will be doing is something I studied for and know how to do it. But in case of a dead end, I am sure my colleagues will give me that lift and help me finish the task.
What are your hobbies / How do you spend your free time?
Well I really love water skiing, so that’s something I do a lot during the summer. Apart from that I really like to play online video games, hang out with friends for a coffee and movies !!!!
Where can we find you online?
You can find me on Facebook and Linkedin @panagiotis siokas or at twitter @WenXiaoHD.
Favorite kind of music?
I have never been a hard person when it comes to music, I get along with almost any genre, but my favorites are pop rock and country music.
Which was the last book you read / movie you watched?
What was the last gadget you bought and why you bought it?
I am not really using gadgets in my life so far, but if it was to buy one, it would definitely be an iWatch !
Anything else to share with us?
Yeah, I can’t wait to meet my colleagues better and become part of the team !
It has been a pleasure going through the responses of Panagiotis; we would like to thank him for taking the time to respond to our questions and wish him all the best for this new experience 🙂
