Lien listening, at a Piristeel hosted Vientikilta event
The third and final month of my work placement has finally come to an end. The chaos of learning my way around the place and everything as a new experience is slowing down, as I have finally settled down into the company. My own routine has developed, and while I am constantly learning and experiencing new things, this work environment no longer feels unfamiliar. I am able to go to business or networking events and feel like I am representing Xport with confidence. And still, after having been away from the office, I can come back knowing that there is work waiting for me at my desk.
I have been with Xport, now, for two months. With March coming to an end, my experiences with Xport have only developed and grown, along with the company. As well as regular office work, I regularly make local company visits, involving several different industries, such as machinery, agricultural, and food and beverage. I also attended a logistics forum, where topical discussions about Seinäjoki becoming a Nordic logistics center were held.
I started at Xport at the beginning of February after a long search for work. I started a work placement with goals that had been discussed beforehand. I’m finding that I’m able to offer much more than that, as Xport’s needs and opportunities have grown tremendously during the past month alone. Not only am I able to benefit Xport during these times, but they have offered me a whirlwind of experiences that one would rarely find in a typical office setting.
