HR experience from Wärtsilä!

Jan 10, 2017
<p>My W&auml;rtsil&auml; journey started already two years ago, when I applied for a summer job. Soon I got a call and was interviewed for a human resource (HR) trainee position. I got to say that the recruitment process was smooth and I was informed very well. I got the job and this summer job was perfectly matching to my studies, since I am studying management and focusing on human resource management.</p> <p>Therefore, during the summer 2015 and 2016 (and in-between part-timely) I was a HR trainee in Vaasa (City). HR team there was rather small, just me, my boss and two colleagues, but I got to know my team members very well which was nice. Our team was a part of bigger HR team that was located in Runsor (in Vaasa) and in Turku, so I got also experiences of the remote team work. </p> <p>My job tasks varied a lot and the days were never similar. My duties included for example organizing well-being related events and superior trainings, internal marketing about HR-topics, handling the temporary lay-off forms, modifying different Excel-sheets and taking part in a one bigger project where I mapped all the HR processes. </p> <p>All in all I got many friends during the W&auml;rtsil&auml; years, as well learned many important skills for my studies and my future career. In addition, I profit more from my studies when I have relevant working experience. The picture below was taken from a boat trip that we did together with my team, so as you see the summer in Vaasa can bring you many memories as well at work as outside the work. I encourage you all to apply for a summer job position at W&auml;rtsil&auml; and join the summerpower!&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <span style="text-align: center; font-size: 13px;">- Annukka</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <br /> <img src="" data-displaymode="Original" alt="Summer Power-Annukka" title="Summer Power-Annukka" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> </p>
