The second event was orchestrated by North American HR to welcome the new batch of trainees, starting in July. Former trainees from the whole world (American, Chinese, Brazilian, German people and so on…) that are working in Michigan went to Northville to have lunch, talk and exchange information. It was a great time to see the different paths people took after the program and to feel a sense of belonging to such a strong and special network which is always open to help, to ask and to talk. After the American lunch (pizza and salad!) we had a spontaneous tour through labs guided by former trainees and curious ones from the other ZF plants.
Elsewhere in Asia, current trainees in China went to party a birthday in a karaoke night. No doubt the best option to celebrate in a Shanghai way. Oh, I wanted to be there as well!
It’s always interesting to meet people, especially when we are in such a nomad way of living. We know we may not have other chance and the time to encounter is now. Because, the program will suddenly be over. But the people that made part of these days can be there for you in the future. So to the new batch, welcome, take your time and have fun!
