In a short interview, Wiktor from the HR department tells what the purpose of this meeting was and what a high school student can do to do an internship at Metapack.
Wiktor, please tell us briefly where are we and what is the purpose of this visit?
We are in the Electronic School Complex in Zielona Góra. We are meeting today with students of three classes in total. Our goal is, above all, to show ourselves, to show that we are in Zielona Góra, that we are a global brand. And that you can also do interesting things in a city like Zielona Góra, not necessarily looking for opportunities to build a career in larger cities.
Who did the initiative to conduct such a meeting come from?
This is an initiative of one of our Metapackers, Adam. He joined us recently, a few months ago, but has already stated that it’s worth sharing information about our company with younger students – because he attended this school.
Who are you going to meet today?
They will be third and fourth grade students.
Do you have any program that will allow students interested in working with Metapack to complete an apprenticeship, internship or work?
If anyone is willing, we can definitely stay in touch. At Metapack there is an apprenticeship for high school students. This year, one of them will join us in February. This person has already been selected, but students report to us with different internship dates and we are able to consider each of these applications.
Do they have to have any special abilities or skills to enter Metapack internships or apply?
It is more a matter of seeing a person’s potential. It is difficult to verify professional experience if someone does not have it. On the other hand, if they are people who already know English, at least partially, show their commitment by participating in projects or extracurricular activities or playing programming after hours at home, it is always an additional advantage for them.
