Hello Everyone!


I am the third of SKF’s global trainees writing on this blog and I am responsible for the next monthly take over. First I will present myself a little bit, then I will share my experiences during these firsts three months.


My name is Marco, I am 24 and as the two colleagues you already know I have a Mechanical Engineering background (Internal combustion engines) at “Politecnico di Torino” and a Master in Six Sigma, Lean Production and TPM. I started this global project by participating in a wonderful introduction month we had in Gothenburg, then I returned to Italy in order to start my first project as a quality engineer trainee in Villar Perosa. The next step will be in Pune (India) and I will face some new challenges because it will probably be in the manufacturing field. Being challenged is one of the best motivational drivers to develop yourself and your career, so if I can leave you a hint it is to look for challenges everyday of your life!


Every day I feel honoured to be part of such an international organization and I really appreciate the opportunity to get a global network within SKF. Furthermore the global trainee program is also an excellent opportunity to get knowledge about different business units (that’s the reason why I’m being pushed to develop projects in different areas each rotation) and to develop your personal skills. Do not forget, on the human side, that such a program is a huge chance to discover the world, meet new cultures and develop yourself as a person.


Last but not least thanks to this experience I met a lot of new colleagues, and I feel very lucky to have the chance to strike up international friendship, and to share our experiences together!


Below are some pictures of the trainees!

Don’t hesitate to comment if you have any questions.


Have a nice week!
