Position: Consultant at Visma Comenius, Visma Software Labs AS
Experience with skiing:
I don’t have a lot of experience with skiing. At least not without an orange, “Kvikk Lunsj” and “Solo” in my backpack. Last winter however was a bit more productive with 5-6 times out in the tracks. At least I own a pair of cross-country skis, which I received as a Christmas gift about ten years ago.
Why did I apply:
First of all, I love cross country skiing, at least on the television. Unfortunately, I grew up in a part of Northern Norway without significant amounts of snow (Vesterålen, where I’m from has a coastal climate). As a result of this, my techniques and experience isn't like expected from a Norwegian.
This, I believe, could be changed dramatically with a project like this, and with some professional help. This rare opportunity was really too good to not give it a chance.
I do expect to develop my skiing techniques to become more like a pro, in addition to improving my strength and stamina. Now I can finally become the stereotype Norwegian who spends every single spare moment out in the forest skiing, yelling “LØYPE” to anyone who’s unfortunate enough to get in my way.
And it goes without saying, I’m excited to meet a lot of new and top motivated colleagues which is a huge bonus. Looking forward to this lifetime experience!
“Say yes - then learn how to do it later!”. That’s exactly what I’m going to do.
