The application process continues through interviews and aptitude tests in November. The final decisions for the program will be made during November-December after the second round of interviews. The mills have approximately 45 vacancies in total and the apprenticeship programs will start in February. UPM’s Kymi and Kaukas mills have planned to engage apprenticeship programs annually.
