Former trainees who now work for us

Hedi Konrad

Was a trainee in summer 2012, now works as an environment specialist in Eesti Energia

The traineeship in Eesti Energia was diverse and exciting! I was able to choose the most interesting area of training and engage in it intensively, while I was supported and willingly given answers to even the most ignorant questions. A traineeship in Eesti Energia means learning from the top specialists in their fields and being able to witness the planning and implementation of the company's continuous development process first-hand. The Estonian oil shale industry has many different facets, something interesting for everyone!

Kristina Eapost

Was a trainee in summer 2014 and now works in the Business and IT Service of Eesti Energia

Eesti Energia is my first employer! The traineeship in Eesti Energia is a great way to see in your daily work how a large organisation operates and to discover the world of diverse and interesting work. I am happy to work here, I have gained invaluable experience and found wonderful friends.

Evert Eero

A summer 2015 intern who now works as project manager at Eesti Energia's Energy Sales Product Development Unit

I see an internship at Eesti Energia as one of the best opportunities for a young specialist to gain experience working for a large company, seeing the patterns of how top specialists think and act on day to day basis, and putting yourself to the test in fulfilling the duties you are assigned. The supportive team of co-workers and positive organizational climate certainly had an influence on how I imagined my future workplace. At university you have to find answers to questions, but as an intern, I learned to ask questions, which gave me the ability to think and act in a broader, more innovative manner.

Heiki Beres

Was a trainee in the summer of 2016 and is now working for Eesti Energia's Business and Information Technology Service (BIT)

I was very satisfied with my traineeship at the BIT. The systems and technologies included in my daily work exceeded my expectations. At the end of my first day as a trainee, I was certain that I had found the right place. During the traineeship I was able to put my knowledge into practice, while I deliberately chose tasks that let me practice the areas in which I did not feel very confident. I was involved in real projects from day one and I felt that my work actually mattered. I always had a supervisor handy when needed, but he left me enough space to work independently. My recommendation to all future trainees – step out of your comfort zone and do things that seem too difficult at first glance. This is the fastest way to develop!
