Hi! My name is Caglar Gul, born on December the 1st of 1996, currently 25 years. I hail from Spijkenisse, a city located in the province of Zuid-Holland.
I think of my self as a very generic person, but one thing I like to distuingish my self in (even though its self proclaimed) is my tenacity in getting things done. Call it an unhealthy habit but I tend to overwork my self in order to get the best possible result in my work (I hate having to think about the things I need to finish when I try to sleep at night).
Before attending to the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, I did a 4 year course on Assistant Accountancy, having finished that, I decided that that is not something I want to continue with, and thus decided that I will pursue information technology (which I always found more interesting than the former).
Fast forwarding to today, and I am currently in my second year at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
What I wish to achieve from my study is the ability to seamlessly produce code, start my own projects and maybe some time later, begin my own company in the information tenchnology branche.
Lastly I would like to inquire a bit about my hobbies. I've played basketball for 3 years and I still like to play some now and then. Then there's gaming too, I especially like the RTS (Real Time Strategy) genre, strategically using your resources to get the best possible outcome. An example game franchise would be 'Total War'.
I like to play guitar as well, I have 2 Yamahas, 1 accoustic-electric and 1 full electric which I strum on whenever I feel like. I don't have any preferred music tastes so I tend to play along on everything.
September 2020 - February 2021
During my internship at Rijkswaterstaat, I was working on a solution using DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting) as a medium to convey arbitrary data in order to send instructions to devices.
March 2016 - 2018
As a Local Sales Associate, I was entrusted with the responsibilities to help customers with their connectivity, general questions, as well as assigning technicians to customers whenever that was needed to solve things such as faulty connections. My second priority was drafting new customers
September 2013 - August 2015
During my time as a financial administrator, I had the responsibilities to keep track of multiple businesses and their administrations. That included activities such as editing the ledgers, adding new entries, making memorial entries as well as making new ledgers for new clients.
November 2013 - December 2015
Whilst employed at Mediamarkt, I was entrusted with numerous responsibilities. Varying from helping customers, to activities such as preparing entire batches of laptops with the right software and entire operating system overhauls. I was also responsible for repairing laptops whenever needed
2018 - present
Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences
After my MBO course, I immediately decided that this isn't the time to stop learning and thus begun with my current study at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. What I hope to gain from this endeavour is the knowledge and the skills to either become an employer in the field or someone who helps an employer to build many great things.
2013 - 2016
Regionaal OpleidingsCentrum Zadkine
This was my intermediate step I had to take in order to be one step closer to what I really want to study. The course taught me how to edit ledgers, how to be critical, how to analyse errors which could potentially ruin a establishment if not dealt with.
