It has been over a month since I joined the company, and it’s a good opportunity to share my story from Blind Applying to Stora Enso. First of all, what is Blind Applying? I can still recall last year when I searched for an internship in Paris, my friend sent me a link to Blind Applying's website and said "Try this!" I clicked and found an amazing world.
Reconnect is the main yearly event in Stora Enso and this year it was arranged for the second time. About 300 people from all around the company attended the event that took place in Helsinki, Finland. Most of the participants were present in one way or another as "ex officio", but to gain a real diversity there were 30 places offered to anyone in the company through an open application process. The process included writing an assignment and after that an interview for the selected candidates. I was happy to be one of the qualified, actually for the second time because I took part also in the first Reconnect in Berlin 2014.
As I am writing this blog post I am in the middle of preparing my move from Stockholm, Sweden and Stora Enso Paper to Beihai, China and the Consumer Board division's investment in the Guangxi region.
