New year greetings from Bjølvefossen

Christmas is in the rear view mirror, and things are starting to normalise after the holidays. I am halfway through my first period as a trainee, currently working in the technical department at Elkem Bjølvefossen. My autumn has been a myriad of exciting assignments, travelling, and courses, intermittently interrupted by jovial coffee breaks, workouts, and social happenings.

Greetings from sunny Solar!

We are now in the final month of the year and for the second year trainees, this means that our second period is inevitably also coming to an end. The hardest part of being a trainee is to say goodbye to great collegues and work environment! But on the other hand, a new and exciting next chapter is waiting!

After a hard day of work

The time spent at work being a trainee is usually limited to about 40 hours a week, leaving 128 hours more you have to fill with non-work-related activities. In order to enjoy the life as a trainee, it is therefore advantageous to be able to fill these remaining hours with some fun. This post will therefore not give a deep insight into the knowledge I have acquired during my current trainee period in the production team at Elkem Salten, but give a view of all the possibilities for fun you can have after your daily work at Elkem Salten is finished.
