The Summer School students participating to ArcelorMittal Galati’s 2nd Internship programme have recently been promoted after a couple of months experience in our unit.
The Internship Programme of ArcelorMittal Galati is focused consists of four main parts: the Summer School itself, thematic lectures held by Romanian and foreign specialists, practical courses and a one day tour in the Steel Plant. The best interns may become employees on a permanent basis.
The number of Summer School trainees assigned on projects this year amounted to 28 students as compared to the 22 that were selected last year. The fields assigned for the projects were diverse as well. Some of the young engineers have expressed their interest in environmental protection, others wanted to be involved in the technological flow or maintenance, while some chose to work on quality issues or customer service, auditing and marketing.
“I had a lot to learn during this summer about the processes in a complex organisation. It was an intense experience that I would like to continue with my mentor, who has been a true role model to me”, Raluca Tamboi, one of the interns spoke about her experience at Summer School.
"The Summer School gave me the opportunity to convey my knowledge to someone younger, an option that I did not have, but also the joy of seeing a student discovering in practice concepts only studied in theory", said Gabriel Pomana, Process Engineer in the Finishing sector.
“I very much welcomed the invitation from ArcelorMittal Galati that the Agency hosts for the very first time students in the framework of the Summer School. The 3 interns worked on a large spectrum of topics: hot rolled sheets market analysis, Ukrainian competition study and perception signals revealed from Flat Carbon Europe customer survey. The best value of their work is the conveyed message that ArcelorMittal positioning in the Romanian market is not granted but strongly relies on the alignment of the steel plant actions with the ever-changing dynamic of our customers needs and competition play”, said Jeanine Sain, Country Head of ArcelorMittal FCE Romania.
The Summer School aims to give students all support to flourish in their future careers and grow because investing in tomorrow’s future brings quality, one of the three core corporate values of ArcelorMittal.
