July 2015 A day in the Field - Technical Visit at our partner Wood Group

A day at Woodgroup PSNs base in Macaé sparks motivation and strengthens dreams for the future. Woodgroup PSN, a service provider in the oil and gas industry, invited Dream Learn Work participants to come and spend a day at their base. To make the day an intensive learning experience, we chose four participants well underway in their training. They were given a grand welcome by Woodgroup PSN employees and given a day they will not soon forget.

The visitors were shown around by the manager of Production and Planning, Alexandre Raimundo, and got an inside view on working routines and everyday life at work. To visit a potential workplace makes the imagination reach out to new horizons. A Dream Learn Work graduate already works at Woodgroup as a safety technician. «The nice thing is that now I feel even more motivated», said Yasmim, one of the participants. “We could ask all the questions we wanted to. There were so many things I had only learned in theory, and now I could understand how it worked in practice.”

Woodgroup also provided with tips and advice on how to apply jobs and creating a CV. The participants were offered to send their CV to the HR Analyst of Wood Group, Natália Silva, for a personal feedback. The visit ended with a nice lunch for all the guests.

Visits like this one are essential for young people with little previous contact with the formal job market. Role models already working show that it is a dream that can be achieved, and concrete advice can help make the road a little easier.
