It’s a wrap!

Thursday, which means this is my last day of my summer job! I am still having problems to decide exactly what I am feeling at the moment. A part of me has been awaiting this day and longing for “freedom” but school starts on Monday, so my freedom will only last as long… My placement […]

Swedish summer nights and flex time

Looks like summer has finally come to Sweden, just in time for the vacation to be over… but hey, I am not complaining!

Last Post

It all has to start somewhere – My very first blog post

Okay, so here it goes. My very first post here on the Scania Career site. Honestly, I am a bit nervous, mixed with anxiousness. What do you want to read about and how will I make it interesting? How will I best communicate all the knowledge and experience I gain here at Scania without confusing […]

Week 3: moving forward

So, week three just passed and we’re moving forward. Slowly forward, but yes, forward. I actually thought we would be way ahead of where we’re standing at the moment and it’ kind of frustrating. As I wrote last time, I’m very aware of the fact that this is a part of the thesis, to figure […]
