The students are motivated and inquisitive

At De Jong Intra Vakanties, we host a couple of students in placement positions every year. Our experiences are nothing but positive. Students have good basic knowledge which allows them to set to work straight away. It never takes long before they are regarded as colleagues, which says it all. The quality is always high. The students are motivated, inquisitive and keen on gaining practical experience. What’s interesting about our company, is that students can experience the entire tour operating process. Every facet of their studies – and more - is dealt with here!

I’ve been given a lot of responsibility

Since my start at Sumo as Technical Designer, I’ve been treated as a full member of the company, receiving standard pay and being equal in voice to my peers. I’ve been given more responsibility than I would have ever imagined and I learned so much about technical design, working in large teams, and the corporate culture of game companies. All this really add value to my personal and professional development, and I’ve only been here for six months.

I got the opportunity to grow, try and learn new things!

I’ve been doing my work placement at Red Agency – a public relations and social media agency – in Sydney, Australia. As a trainee in the social media team, I have provided general assistance to the team. Additionally, I’ve been doing community management, content calendar development, competitor and industry research as well as scheduling posts and writing copy. My goal was to learn more about social media, getting to know the work atmosphere within an international agency and to experience living abroad. Red Agency gave me the opportunity to grow, try and learn new things – and I did learn a lot!
