“I’m especially grateful to our manager and team leader for being so helpful. Metso really cares about all employees regardless they work permanently or not. I felt that my manager was interested in my professional development and growth. MO is a great place for a trainee, and it offers a strong start for future professional growth.” ​​

“Great colleagues who understand the needs and wants of a Summer Trainee. I had mentioned that I am going to specialize in a specific topic in my studies in the future and I had a lot of opportunities created for me by my awesome colleagues to work with this topic without me even asking about it!” ​​

“My supervisor and buddy gave me versatile tasks, and I feel that gained a lot of experience during the summer and was given responsibility. It's nice to work both in the office and in the factory area, this way you can see what you're working on in practice. Thank you for the summer!” ​​
