All interns had the opportunity to test their knowledge in a real work environment, to work in a team and be responsible for the timely and accurate performance of their tasks. The knowledge and skills acquired during their internship will be very beneficial for their future career. Over the six years since the internship programme has been launched in Ellatzite-Med, the company has trained 179 students, as 14 of them have already joined the team of Ellatzite-Med.
“The analysis we have conducted over the years shows that our summer internship programmes have raised students’ enthusiasm and motivation to acquire new knowledge. Yet their mentors feel satisfaction from being able to arouse young people’s interest and willingness to pursue a career in the mining sector,” – said M.Eng. Simona Sabkova, Human Resources Director at Ellatzite-Med.
