Greetings from a past HR trainee:

Participating as a trainee in UPM's Summer Recruitment Project has been an amazing learning experience for me.

Furthermore, the welcoming and flexible working environment of the HR Service Center ensured that my traineeship was an all-around excellent experience. Krakow as a city is also vibrant and wonderful place to live and explore, with its museums and other attractions like the charming old town. - Suvi, HR Trainee spring 2023
