Internship is a work placement which allows a student gain practical professional experience in their field of study or interest. We place top interns at companies all around Europe from public agencies, multinational firms to exciting startup companies and NGOs. An internship should always be a mutually beneficial endeavour for both the company and intern.
Companies can benefit significantly from providing training or internships to interns seeking career advancement opportunities. By taking on an intern you are supporting students in gaining practical work experience where they can apply their theoretical knowledge and build their career for the future.
