Why did you choose to become a DC Graduate?

Coming from an untraditional background, the graduate programme represents an excellent opportunity for me to hone my programming skills while acquiring a broad understanding of many aspects of the business. I am confident that an understanding of everyday challenges that my stakeholders face will improve the solutions that I provide.


What is the most inspiring challenge in being a DC Graduate?

I face many new concepts both related to the business and software development. I am constantly challenged to identify opportunities by drawing on my experience from physics both on the abstract and concrete levels.


What is the culture like at Danske Commodities?

The culture at Danske Commodities is very open and people are enthusiastic. Both formal and informal knowledge sharing is highly encouraged.

Former DC graduate Jinghua Wang

JINGHUA WANG

  • Full name: Jinghua Wang
  • Education: Master's in Computer Science and Engineering
  • Employed since: 1 September 2014

Why did you choose to become a DC Graduate?

Energy trading was a brand new domain for me, as a fresh IT graduate. I wanted to gain market knowledge by learning from the actual business, which could lay a solid foundation to develop me as an in-house software developer. And it paid off!


What is the most inspiring challenge in being a DC Graduate?

Every single day is different. There were challenges all the time - new tasks, new colleagues and new stakeholders.


What is the culture like at Danske Commodities?

People here at Danske Commodities are very passionate and open-minded to opportunities and improvements. We like to share knowledge and ideas, working from a “no stupid questions” principle.
