How I got my job in WebGazer on the day I learned that it existed

Yes, you heard it right. They both happened on the same day. I had no idea about WebGazer a few months ago, and now I am a part of it! It all started when a friend of mine texted me that he wanted some help. I said okay, but honestly, I did not think that it would become my new job. Before this, I was working voluntarily in a student organization as Instagram responsible and Public Relations Committee member, so I knew some stuff. Working there for 2 years voluntarily, taught me more than I thought. It used to be my hobby, now it became my job and as I keep working at WebGazer, I feel like I will learn more and get better each day.

So, what is my job after all? My first task at WebGazer was to do research. Research about everything: others in the field, SaaS, WebGazer, how to do digital marketing and so on. After that, I realized that I like doing research and gathering results out of them. For every task I've had, I was first researching, then preparing some documents including my conclusions. At that point, I became a business analyst for WebGazer.

How did I accept even though I had no clue about my future job? Actually, I was confident in myself since I have been doing this for two years now. Still, my part was not clear enough for me to say "ABSOLUTELY YES!" Anyway, the people I was talking to, they were really nice to me and I thought it would be a great chance for me to try something new. We had a friendly chat including the introduction of ourselves and WebGazer. The first time I've heard of WebGazer was back then. Altan and Gokhan were like a friend to me although we just met there and I have always liked the places where I can be comfortable because that is where I can truly work efficiently. So, I accepted working with them there!

It's been over a month now, and I love working for WebGazer. It is such a great atmosphere! Being a part of a growing start-up and hopefully transforming it into a big company excites us all. This is the common point of WebGazer Team whose members are all different from each other. We all try to get together on Mondays, face-to-face or online, to brainstorm for WebGazer to make it better each day!

This has been a diary-like blog post, but I wanted to share my experience and tell everyone about our conditions in which we try to manage some stuff and survive in the wild business world.
