Davide’s internship experience in Sampsistemi

“For many high schools and professional students, the arrival of summer means relaxation since most of the examinations come to a halt. On the contrary, thanks to the programme alternanza scuola-lavoro” (which is an equivalent to the UK “Young apprenticeship programme”)  supported by my school, the “Istituto Salesiano”, I had the great opportunity to join Sampsistemi for 4 weeks as an intern.

I was very excited to start my internship in Sampsistemi since it was a real-life working experience and my first approach to a job related to my studies. Since the very first day, my new colleagues have warmly welcomed me to their group and allowed me to participate actively to many different work activities. Indeed, with their support I have learned to build a conveyor belt, I have used a column drill and the grate to remove the rust. Thanks to my supervisor, with whom i have developed close and friendly relations, I have realized the importance of carrying out a job with commitment and precision, since approximate and superficial work can have several negative consequences.

The internship at Sampsistemi has been an intensely educational experience for me and I would sincerly recommend it to all my peers. Indeed, thanks to this internship you have the unique chance to put in practice everything you have learned at school from a theoretical point of view. Moreover, since you spend all the day among adults and you must engage with them daily, you will consequently reach an important personal growth.

For all of these reasons, I would be glad and happy to work as assembler or test driver within the SAMP Group”.
