A Year in Mexico & a Backpack full of Memories
Gaining my first “real” work experience at RavenRubber México has been initially anything else but planned. It was pure coincidence and luck, which brought me to this company, which taught me more within the first 2 months than I was taught in my entire studying career in Austria. Private circumstances made me take this decision to go to Monterrey for a year and finding this job - as an assistant of Mr. Ravenstein - has helped me a lot making this city my home.
I got the opportunity to get an insight into a globally active company, which not only produces very demanding products but has furthermore a friendly work environment, transparent rules and motivated colleagues to offer. Don´t get me wrong! I am not saying that I have not had my fights with the differences in traditions, schedule and life style that go along with a foreign culture, but all those aspects mentioned above helped me to feel welcome here and to adapt to the procedures and customs in the company.
Now that my training year comes to an end I will take a whole backpack full of experiences and memories home to Austria. Experiences and memories that cannot be taken away from me no matter where I go and what I do. But don´t worry, going back to Europe does not mean that I stop being part of the RavenTeam. I will keep working for our company on long-distance and I am sure that soon enough we will see each other again here in Monterrey.
I enjoyed working with you a lot. Let us keep up this way of efficiently cooperating also in the future.
My best wishes, Lisa
