Benjamin is in his second year as a trainee with us. Here you can read more about his path into Aneo and what he's working on.
Why did you apply for a trainee position at Aneo?
When I completed my education, I was uncertain about which role I would thrive in in the workforce, which made the trainee position seem like a natural step. I chose Aneo because it is a forward-thinking company with a strong professional environment that also shares my values.
What do you like most about working at Aneo?
For me, freedom is what I value most. This freedom means that I can try out new tasks, in terms of roles or fields. In one project, I can work as a technical resource to assess specifications, while in another project, I can be a project manager facilitating meetings and making decisions. This gives me a lot of flexibility to explore what I want to work with and how I want to proceed in life.
What have you worked on during your time as a trainee?
Mainly development projects. I have mostly worked on a project where we automate tasks. There, I started as a technical resource evaluating various technologies. Today, I have taken over as project manager for this project and spend most of my time here. In another project, I have been involved in data collection and setting up Power BI reports for business controllers. In addition to these, I have worked as service responsible for fault management for our Energy Management department. In the summer of 2023, I also had the opportunity to challenge myself as a coordinator for our summer students. There are also many more projects I have worked on, but these are the most central ones.
What is the best thing about being a trainee?
The opportunities. As mentioned earlier, I have been able to try out countless roles. Recently, I completed a certification in project management and have been given projects with more responsibility. The flexibility to try things out to find what one likes allows me to figure out how I can best thrive in my workday. In addition to this, we (trainees) have the opportunity to go on trainee trips. Four months after I started, we visited hydropower plants, watercourses, and the production center. This year, we spent a whole week at the Roan wind farm and got to take an environmental tour, inspect wind turbines, and climb to the top of them. After work, we have been social where we have played curling, gone on boat trips, and much more. Since almost all trainees are recent graduates, it's nice to be able to share the experiences you gain as a newcomer to the workforce.
