PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Jakob1Jakob Fösl: 

‘My name is Jakob Fösl and I am a plastics shape encoder. In the company where I worked, they have seven injection moulding machines and produces parts for medical, agricultural and aviation purpose. In the company, there are about 10 employees, which work in shift work times. They have to produce parts for a lot of clients. in smaller productions and mix the proper material by hand, not by machinery like I used to from home. My luck at the company was that some of the employees could speak a little bit English and some German as well, so I could communicate with them. The more days I went to work there, the more I liked the work and gained new experience. For me, the work in this company is a great experience and I have gained new skills and competencies here’

‘My name is Krisztian and I am doing an internship at a school in Seville. The school offers Middle and Higher Degrees of Aeronautics, in its two specialities Avionics and Aeromechanics, but in other technical areas as well. As a trainee here I am experiencing different administrative tasks, especially related to financial aspects. I personally like new tasks and the work in this office and I am glad to gain new experience abroad because it is possible on this way to create more connections between the different areas of administration in fact in Spain, where I can really enjoy the concept of work with less stress.  I love my colleagues as well because they help me all time to do all the tasks and teach me very enthusiastically Spanish.’

Mohammed Reza Madjidi:

‘I am doing my practical experience in a company located in the centre of Seville. My mentor, Carmen, is very talkative and friendly. Among our tasks we sew and design flamenco dresses, do amendments and create accessories. In the afternoon we often receive the visits of our customers especially children with their parents and explain Carmen how they would like to be their special flamenco dress designed. It has been without a doubt a nice and enriching experience for me.’
