Gerjan te Lindert (21) completed an internship at the internationally operating technical company Metaflex and now holds a challenging job there. His employer in Aalten supports him in his part-time Technical Business Administration (Bachelor) studies. This provides Gerjan with a good idea of his opportunities at Metaflex and his future prospects in the technical industry. "Metaflex is highly recommended for interns and employed technicians."
"From the very first moment, it was clear that this was a great place to do your internship," says Gerjan (21 years old). "I was given a substantial internship assignment: creating a test set-up from A to Z. I spent 15 weeks working on the project, where I was able to apply a whole range of competencies." Metaflex produces high-quality, technical door systems for the healthcare, food and pharmaceutical sectors. A whole new world opened up for Gerjan. "Doors made here are highly specialist in nature and are used all over the world. Did you know that certain hospital doors have to meet a whole raft of requirements? Radiation-proof and fireproof, smoke-proof, airtight, automatic and sterile, to name but a few. I am amazed. I never thought I would find it so interesting. Every day I learn something new."
