Testimonials on the Internship

I attended my internship in The Netherlands. Zwolle is the city that hosted me and Landstede the school that I had the pleasure to work for. My personal experience was of high value both professional and human. In Landstede I carried out several activities since the beginning. I was immediately involved in the submission of two Strategic Partnership and one Mobility project. For these projects I was mainly responsible of the communication with the partners but I had also the chance to fill the application forms and to participate to the preparatory meetings where my opinion and my point of view were always considered. The work environment of Landstede is really enjoyable. My tutor and my colleagues were extremely friendly and polite, always available to help. I am still in touch with the people that I have met there and I have to say that I can always rely on them if I have any advice to ask. Ah Zwolle (The Netherlands), June 2014
