We interviewed Lora Dimitrova, IT Business Analyst at Serco on her experience and thoughts on women in tech.
I work as an IT consultant under the DIGIT TM contract. I am consulting in DG REFORM (European Commission (EC)).
The job chose me. I was working on another contract – EDCC – and there was a need for an IT support to pick up few things with the client (EC) and the team in house. My responsibilities grew with time and I got more and more submerged in the IT sphere.
Yes, there is a lack. There is the general misconception is society that some jobs are manlike and other are womanlike. For this reason a lot of employers would assume that a guy will be more qualified than a women (even if they have the same qualifications)
GO for it. There is nothing you can’t do. The only thing you need is to like doing what you’re doing!
