When did you start at Metso Outotec and in which position?
Back in 2017 I got my first summer trainee position from Metso Outotec. It was my first year at university and the position that I got was blue-collar worker in Tampere Lokotrack production site. Main tasks were packaging and sending Lokotrack crushers to customers. Part of the summer I was also in the production line assembling those crushers. During the summer I learned a lot about our products and processes.
What kind of roles have you had since then?
In 2018 my manager from the previous summer called me and asked me to do my bachelor’s thesis about the layout change of the packaging department where I worked at the summer. After finalizing my thesis, I worked as a Development Engineer Trainee and had a chance to create the changes planned in my theses in practice. One of the biggest learnings from this position was how to sell my ideas to others.
