Trainee experiences

I am a final year undergraduate student in Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology with Software major. I work in a Software testing department and my daily tasks include test cases in the company's test execution environment. Airbus is a globally recognized company. I am working in an international team and Airbus never made me feel like an outsider who came from different nation. For all the future trainees, I highly recommend you all to apply for a Trainee Programme. This has been one life changing opportunity for me and I guarantee that working in this place can be one huge opportunity for you as well.

Palisa Tuladhar Trainee in Verification

I am a final year BBA student specialized in marketing. As a marketing trainee, I have got opportunities that I could not imagine before getting to Airbus. Within the last five months I have got a chance to become a member of a multinational team of professionals and opportunities to make projects not only in Finland but also to Germany, France and United Arab Emirates. My highlights of the trainee programme were my visits to the Critical Communications World exhibition in Berlin and my two week website migration project in Elancourt, near Paris. I recommend the trainee programme for students who are willing to learn new business and get a glance of global environment. You will get as much responsibility as you want and your skills will be trusted from the beginning. You just need to make the trust worthful!

Henry Wilen Marketing trainee

My typical day is really flexible. Quite much of my focus is on the customer. My tasks might have something to do with signing contracts, clarify some problems and solutions on that. Problem solving all day every day. My supervisor is making it possible for me to grow professionally. In my team I don’t feel any micromanagement, you have responsibilities and you are trusted to manage those. It’s a huge thing that your supervisor and team trust in you. At the same time you can always ask and people help you so you are not alone. Everybody is eager to help and I have really competent and great colleagues.

My team doesn’t think about me as a trainee, they think of me as a colleague which has been really great. In Airbus it feels like I’m on the same level as my team even though I’m a trainee and that I have meaningful work tasks”, says Emma, a sixth year mechanical engineering student in Aalto University. Emma is working as a trainee in the test automation team. “I didn’t know a lot about testing and testing environments so those have been really good things to learn. Most of the stuff I’m doing right now I have learned at Airbus.

Emma Syrjänen Test Automation Trainee

Our team works with installation and maintenance of servers and operating systems. We are also in charge of maintenance of our equipment's software level. So far I have learned a lot about developing applications, using Python and about Unix-based operating systems. I didn’t really use them before I came to Airbus. The overall atmosphere at Airbus is really good and I think people are really nice. Coming to work is enjoyable every day.
