I think how quickly and easy it was to get the internship. I was very busy and stressed with exams, and all I had to do was send over 3 documents and Lucie just took it from there! And another best feature is the amount of contact and support you have here, The weekly whatsapp messages just checking in to see how I was doing, and that kind of support you give the interns. I know it’s in your company values and you really follow them!
