Let’s start the interview!

Q. Tell us about yourself

Q. What inspired you to join this sector?

Q. Can you elaborate why?

Senja: I think reliability, system or component, is outcome of proper maintenance policy and its executions.

Q. What is the best piece of advice you would give to a junior professional to succeed in your sector?

Q. Can you recommend any books or media?

Senja: Not really anything specific, but I always encourage to read: books, publications, news, articles and social media discussions, not just your own professional area, but pretty much everything. It’s a way to learn languages, cultures, different technological revolutions and widen your perspective on everything.

Be curious and look outside. Not just in to your neighborhood, but beyond!
