I like big vehicles. I like to explore motors and transmissions, dismantle and repair them. I’m tempted by trucks and truck transport, so I chose to study Repairer of trucks and buses Scania in Integrated high school of automobiles in stipendium program – Young Professionals. Nevertheless it can seem that it’s a hard job for a woman, but we have a possibility to use technologies and devices that make the job easier. I’m convinced that this area has future. Truck transport will be crucial for goods transport and it will be necessary to be able to repair the vehicles no matter the kind of transmission or motor. After finishing studies I can get a two-year employment contract, which is important for me. I want to do a job which I enjoy and the assurance of employment is great bonus. I like that the company is modern, it’s introducing us new technologies, we have the possibility to educate and develop ourselves further. I want to fulfill my childhood dream and become a truck driver, “with distance ahead of me and a load behind me”. I believe that when I will have my own family, I will be able to balance my family and professional life. I would like to work as Scania dispatcher.
