Finally it is time to blog again! I am currently stationed in Imatra, Finland, for a three-week project within Human Resources. It is part of my Trainee International Assignment, which will last for three months and also bring me to places such as Poland and India. I had no previous experience from HR before taking on this project, and saw this as an opportunity to challenge myself as well as to develop and broaden my skills and experience.
As the second week of the trainees' trip to China drew to a close, we had already seen two very different faces of China. Having spent the first week in Shanghai, a 20+ million people city filled with international influences and impressions, where a Starbucks is never far away and the cars actually stop at traffic lights, and then travelled the Guangxi province, on the southern coast of China, where tuk-tuks still flood the streets, hotel staff barely speak English and all sorts of animal body parts are sold as food in the street corners, it was obvious to all trainees that there is not only one China.
Hello everybody, this time I want to share with you a great experience that I have had this week! I just came back to Stockholm after having spent three days in Paris, engaging in interesting meetings with potential clients, educative seminars about packaging innovation and technology and of course meeting the ever-so-friendly colleagues at Stora Enso.
