What in particular made you apply for a Korkia position?
I applied for the Legal Trainee position at Korkia, because in this task I can combine both of my professional interests: working with legal matters and sustainable development.

This job at Korkia just seemed like a dream job for me.
What goals and expectations do you have regarding your new job?

I believe that I will also learn a lot of new things about renewable energy and investments. My future goal is to become a top legal professional in the renewable energy industry.
What energizes you in your free time?
In my free time, I am energized especially by music. I sing in a band, try sometimes to play the piano and listen to a lot of music. This autumn, my goal is to learn to play the bass. In addition to music, I am also energized by spending time in nature.
