Thomas K. – Marketing Student
// Introduce yourself
My name is Thomas Konrat, I’m 22 years old and a dual marketing student at FIFTY2 in my 5th semester. I joined the company in October 2018.
// Describe what is your job at FIFTY2.
My main focus lies on our Social Media channels, especially LinkedIn and YouTube. There I plan and create our content, for example by preparing texts or editing videos and making sure that we always have enough in the pipeline.
// What’s the coolest thing about working at FIFTY2?
Oh, definitely table football for me. There’s nothing better than competing with your colleagues and giving it large to them when you happen to beat them 10-9 🙂 .
// What is it that you like the most about working in your team?
What I love the most about marketing is the fact that I can really be creative in my job. There are so many different ways to get to the final result that every time I prepare a video, for instance, it feels different and new. I also really enjoy working closely together with our developers or application engineers to be able to make the best out of their great content. Of course, it is very exciting as well to see how our community keeps on growing and it feels great to be able to be a part of that.
// And finally, tell us something about yourself others may be surprised to know about you.
Well, I love football (yes, football and not soccer!), which as itself may not be that surprising, but what I also like a lot is actually collection jerseys. This includes new jerseys as well as old ones from the footballers that I grew up with, so around the mid-2000’s. I just love owning jerseys from players that have been an inspiration to me for my whole life like Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry or Zinédine Zidane. It feels like being in a time machine when wearing them.
