I'm Cristina, originally from Spain, but currently located in Lappeenranta, Finland. I moved to Finland in 2017, to study a Master's degree in Chemical and Process Engineering in Lappeenranta University of Technology. I started at Metso Outotec about a year after moving here. I was a summer trainee from May 2018 to the end of August 2018, making quotation proposals for thickeners and clarifiers. I have so many good memories from that summer!
Metso Outotec is a very international company. I had coworkers from Lappeenranta, Espoo and Saint Petersburg and my boss was located in Perth, Australia. I remember my boss coming to Finland for a short visit a couple of weeks before my contract started. Even if I wasn’t officially a summer trainee yet, he and my soon to be coworkers from Lappeenranta invited me for a very nice lunch, so that we could get to know each other. I felt very welcomed to the team!
