What industry do you work in or with?
– Currently, I work with the military as an Industrial Psychologist in South Africa with all arms of service. My degree from Linnaeus University paired really will with my background in Psychology and my passion for studying the different leadership models and roles in organizations.
What are the best highlights of your job and what are the biggest challenges?
– I really enjoy the opportunity to work with a variety of people from different backgrounds on a daily basis. I work with training, team building, psychological assessments etc. I really enjoy the different practical elements of my profession. It's one of the greatest things; every day is unique, I'm always doing something different and it's very stimulating. However, the biggest challenge would have to be the lengthy final decision making processes when working with a bigger team and wherein each step requires a chain of command. Although I understand the importance of this, you cannot just take immediate action which can be a challenge when time-sensitive issues are encountered and you must exercise restraint until final decisions are made.
How did you establish your career after your studies at Linnaeus University?
– After finishing my first master's degree in Industrial Psychology, I had completed a twelve month internship with the South African military. By doing so, this made it possible for me to come back into this work environment and contribute what I had learned from my studies at Linnaeus University. The modules and experiences I had at Linnaeus University are beneficial in my job on a daily basis. I can combine my knowledge on international leadership with Industrial Psychology aspects such as; identifying leadership potential, how best to train potential leaders and implementing leadership models in an organization.
How was your student life at Linnaeus University?
– The twelve month graduate program I completed at Linnaeus University was very enjoyable. Linnaeus University encourages a certain culture of togetherness. They encourage you to spend time together and not just in school-related events. You really create a family with your class. Before you know it you're in each other's homes and are building long-lasting relationships. Everyone is in somewhat the same situation as we all come alone to Linnaeus University from different parts of the world, so the university encourages you to support each other. The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) also created great extramural activities. They really wanted to give us the full Swedish and international experience with many trips and cultural events. I remember the international cooking and culture nights which were a great environment to make friends. It was always interesting to learn the differences in food, culture and history of people who came from Spain, Poland or even Germany and I learned a lot that I hadn't known before.

Life in Kalmar
Kalmar is not big city, thus it is easy to find everything and I should not spend much of my time to get to the university, library or shopping-center. The one thing I like the most is almost all people can speak English fluently.
The surroundings and nature of Kalmar is amazing. There is a Baltic sea and the bridge that leads to the big island – Öland where I can go and enjoy beautiful views. Sometimes my friends and I go to feed swans and ducks close to the sea. It is really fun. It seems that these animals are always hungry.
At the beginning, I was afraid that I would not have friends here. However, after some days everything has changed. I have got friends so fast. We always share feelings, studying and relaxing together. It is an indescribable feeling to be around amazing people who are always ready to help me. We always have many social events, parties, evenings and dinner together.
