They develop administrative and production skills, meet managers and crews and gain a comprehensive overview of the printing business. The program demands flexible and enthusiastic people. Opportunity is a common word used by trainees. As a trainee, you would be given the opportunity to work, learn, grow and have fun with the best people in the printing industry.
