"Be yourself. The best way to show your strengths and your skills is not to play a character, but be who you really are! Bring your experiences and expertise and show why you can contribute to the organization!"
-Kellen Santos, environmental engineer trainee

Kellen Santos became an Alcoan this Spring as part of Alcoa Brazil's Technical Trainee Program. Working at Poços de Caldas, she completed the program's onboarding and later began work on the factory floor where she was able to quickly add value working within the team responsible for the facility's ongoing water conservation and reuse projects. "In addition, I've had training, mentoring, coaching and a tailor-made development program," Kellen explained. "When the program ends in September 2022, I'll be ready to be a very good technical employee and can continue to contribute to Alcoa."

What's continuing to energize her about the opportunity? "...Mainly the values of the company. It's a workplace where you can really be yourself without prejudice. You are accepted and welcomed," she added. "It's really like a family. People care about each other in all areas of the organization. Leadership is very engaged. Not only do they have deep technical knowledge but they also show the value of "care of people" every day."

Her advice to others underway in their careers or just starting out? "Be yourself. The best way to show your strengths and skills is not to play a character but be who you really are!"
