Ava Hosseinpour Testimonials
" I like that Cognizant is an international and multicultural company with many opportunities. You learn to be more open, more flexible and more tolerant. You also get to work on interesting topics such as digital transformation, data science and data management. Finally, thanks to the training in Spain, I have met many colleagues from all over Europe and so have managed to extend my international network. Afterwards there are also regular events where you can get to know your colleagues in an informal way and exchange knowledge. " Ava Hosseinpour

" Cognizant offers the opportunities of a multinational company, with the personal commitment of a small company. It's very motivating to see that my own efforts are being rewarded by the commitment of my managers to find a project that really fits my interests and career prospects. In addition to the technical training courses that prepare me for an upcoming project, the Graduate Development Program offers a wide range of training in soft skills. " Niels van Dijk
