Short Personal Summary

Emilia graduated from Chalmers University of Technology in 2018 with a M.Sc. in Product Development. After graduation, she has worked with product design and industrial automation in Gothenburg. For her, starting work at Saab also meant moving back home. Growing up near the Bofors firing range, the sound of heavy combat weapons was not uncommon. In her youth, she enjoyed playing soccer and floorball. Nowadays, she enjoys spending time travelling, cooking and being outdoors hiking, skiing or picking mushrooms preferably with family and friends.
Emilia is employed as a Systems Engineer at Dammbro in Karlskoga. In her role, sorting and structuring information and setting up an overall requirement specification for a product is a typical task. Knowing a little about a lot is a key phrase.


Why did you apply to the graduate programme?

I got the thought of applying for a position at Saab for the first time at a career fair. Saab to me is a company working with fascinating and powerful technology. I felt I wanted to fully explore the world of Saab and that this was a good way to do so. At the same time, I get the opportunity to work with my personal skills to become a future leader.


Do you have any tips for someone who is interested in applying for the graduate program?

Start from yourself; what are your interests? Does it align with the role description? Picture yourself in the role; do you think you would enjoy it? From my experience, I got the understanding that if you are passionate about something you will do great and have fun working with it..


Has your image of Saab changed during the program?

I must say that I am positively surprised. I had the impression that it would be a bit slow and inactive, which I do not believe at all anymore. The large co-operations across areas of expertise, the complexity of requirements and the technically advanced projects makes my days just fly by, in a good way.
