Engineering the right career fit in manufacturing

Dario Fozibo and Francesco Sapienza, part of the Make It 2017 class of new hires, offer their views on applications, on-the-job training and opportunities that came out of the Prysmian Group career development program for engineers.

En - Story Make It - Quote Fobizio

“If I had to describe Make It, I’d say: ‘Prysmian has catalyzed a process of constant change and growth – setting itself apart not only in terms of what we make, but in striving to be best in class in how we make it.’ ‘Make It’ challenges you to do both.”

In just three years, Make It has proven to be a first-class career development program for manufacturing engineers. Prysmian looks to drive growth in the fast-changing and demanding global manufacturing arena in two ways: by building both its expertise and its operations excellence.

As a global leader in the cable industry, Prysmian offers innovative projects in an international environment. Thanks to Make It, the Group is positioned as the employer of choice for talented engineers looking to pursue careers in manufacturing--from process engineering to maintenance engineering to production supervisors, and everything in between.

“After 10 years in the same company, I wanted to expand my know-how in a new business working in Supply Chain. Prysmian gave me even more; a way to combine my passion of both supply chain and manufacturing. I could see they also invested in people. Taken together, I was convinced it was the right choice.”

Make It Induction

Shortly thereafter, Dario & Francesco received word that they had been selected for the program. Their journey into the world of Prysmian Group began with a 2-week orientation divided between the Milan HQ and the Prysmian Manufacturing Academy in Mudanya, Turkey. Here, they were introduced to the Group’s products and technologies and manufacturing processes, through intensive sessions given by senior managers and experienced colleagues followed by an “in-plant” experience.
