'One of the best things about my internship at Partos, I think, is that right from the start you are treated as an equal part of the team. You are actually involved in all kinds of ongoing processes right from the start. That way you learn a lot, including a lot of new people. Moreover, in meetings you get the space to share your opinion, and you are listened to. Your tasks vary from smaller, executive tasks to larger, more strategic tasks. But you also get the space to focus on the subjects you like, and can take the initiative!
