I’m a full-time PhD student at Eötvös Loránd University, my field of research in Russian literature. Although I do love academic work, it can be a little lonely sometimes, that’s why in the past couple of years while attending university, I always tried to hold jobs where I got to experience new things, and where I could focus on concrete, practical tasks. I think that a coworking office is a great concept in itself, and I’ve only heard wonderful things about KAPTÁR, so I was very happy when the opportunity presented itself to apply for a job here. For me, it’s really important to be surrounded by motivated people who are passionate about what they are doing. KAPTÁR is full of such people, so I’m looking forward to becoming part of the community.
What is the best part of your job?
I really like working with people, feeling like I can contribute to their lives in some form, help them with their day-to-day tasks.
What excites you most about new challenges?
For me, it is psychologically important to feel like I’m heading somewhere and to always learn new things. Probably that’s why I’ve stayed at the university for so long: their professional progress has a well-defined and systematic framework. I do my best to consider every new challenge in my life not as an obstacle, but as a new opportunity to work towards personal growth.
What was most annoying about working at home?
Like many KAPTÁRians, I’ve also experienced that when I attempt to work or study at home, it takes much more time to get anything actually done than normally, since day-to-day household tasks can divert my attention. In turn, relaxing and recharging at home will also be less effective, since work and home-life have no separate space or time. I prefer it when everything has its own place.
