”An employee can also have an impact”

During my final year at the Etelä-Savo vocational college, I joined Virtatie for the on-the-job training period included in the basic electrical education. I obtained a permanent job here after my graduation.

Since my time as a student, Virtatie has been able to provide me with a variety of electrical installation and maintenance tasks. I have had the opportunity to observe various types of projects and client applications. Sometimes I work together with other professionals and now and again I complete jobs independently. Safety is paramount and no one is allowed to work independently on projects unless fully qualified.

I have received positive feedback from both clients and Jani regarding how much I have learned during this period. I also appreciate the fact that at Virtatie one can have an influence if you desire to change something. As an employee, one can have an impact on matters.

”An exceptional opportunity to apply what you’ve learned into practice”

I’ve worked with Virtatie since autumn, 2023. Within a short time, I have been given responsibility for a wide variety of tasks, from computer-based design to practical work at clients’ locations. I obtained the topic for my thesis from one of the clients. I graduated from the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences, Xamk, as a Bachelor in Electrical and Automation Engineering in spring, 2024.

Virtatie has provided an excellent opportunity to apply my studies into practice and increase my understanding of electrical and automation technology. I also appreciate the fact that I was instantly accepted in an enjoyable workplace.
