Jose (centre) hanging-out with some of the Xport team
I remember my first day of work at Xport, three months ago. I was very excited for what that experience was going to provide me and for having the opportunity to contribute to the company. In addition, I was warmly welcomed by all the members of both, Xport and BSTR, which indicated the great atmosphere around the office.
During the time I was working at Xport I was finishing my master studies and figuring out what to do next in my career. That is why it has been a busy, dynamic but rewarding period that helped me to develop myself even further.
Nearly five months ago I wrote my very first post in this blog. Time has gone by quickly and it has felt like days rather than months. I am excited to write my thesis and to complete my studies, but sad that my internship here has now come to its end. My time at Xport has given me a lot and I enjoyed having varied tasks every day which made work very interesting.
My name is Rosa and I am studying International Business at Seamk. I am from Central Finland and moved to Seinäjoki for my studies. I am finishing my studies in the end of this year and all I have left to do is my internship and my thesis.
I will be spending the next five months here at Xport and I’m excited to work in such an international company. I have been in exchange twice, once in Mexico and once in Spain and I love to travel, and I believe that continuing to spend time in an international environment will be not only very helpful, but also fun. This is my first time working in my own field and I am happy to have this opportunity to learn and see what it is like to work here.

It is said that something is special to you when it’s about to an end – although, I knew that eventually my time at Xport would end. Despite that, I am so grateful for the fabulous experience in a place I could never have imagined doing my internship.
I remember everything I did at Xport during my Internship and I feel so wonderful about everything I did over the course of 12 weeks, all of which went so well with the good guidance of the Xport team.
Hello, my names is Diwakar (or Diw) and I am from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. I’ve been living in Seinäjoki for 3 years as I am a student of International Business and culture in SeAMK. Currently, I am a final year student and the final phase of my studies is to do an internship.
Luckily, I got an opportunity to experience an international company in Seinäjoki. My purpose of doing an internship in Xport is to widen my knowledge, to learn to operate a business successfully in the right way. My field of interest is market research and marketing and to know day-to-day operations of a business.
Han’s lightbulb moment – “Now I understand clearly what the company does.”
My 10 weeks working for Xport as an intern has gone by quickly. It’s neither long nor short time, it’s been enough for me to enrich both my knowledge and experience.
First of all, it was great to work in an international environment where English is the main language. I got a chance to communicate in English with various accents including German, Finnish, British and American. Read more
