Data Analyst at Platinum Credit Uganda Limited, Cynthia Dezu

I analyze data to make it more meaningful to the various teams, leaders, management and stakeholders to guide them in decision making. 

This role has exposed me to vast knowledge and skills especially within the financial industry including report writing/compilation which is key in any role. It has greatly improved my confidence because of the exposure to various tasks and interactions with different individuals both outside and within the profession.

To those looking for Internship opportunities or graduate programmes, it is important to look out for what makes you stand out of the millions of graduates out there because it is from this that a company/employer will realize your potential and how you could add value to their organization. It could be a skill/extra knowledge that you have earned out of school that you are ready to apply to a given setting.

My ultimate career goal is to become a professional in the field of Business Analytics and my current role is a stepping stone towards achieving this, given the various responsibilities and tasks I am undertaking in line with this profession from report generation to Performance Analysis.

I attribute much of my success in acquiring this role to the training I received at Pro Interns. The various trainings conducted in CV writing and Interview techniques enabled me write a well-structured CV as well as present myself more confidently during the interviews. With all this knowledge, I was able to land a role in a field I am extremely passionate about and that is one of my biggest achievements in life so far.
