Testimonial of an intern at a Dutch company
Interview with Diana Lefterache on her experience as a student and her internship in the Netherlands.
I am a student at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, and have been in the Netherlands for almost three years. Initially, I experienced quite a large sense of culture shock, and felt home-sick. I found the prices for student accommodation to be absurdly expensive, and there were many other frustrations too.
I gradually found the Netherlands to be quite an enjoyable place to live. I liked the casual, informal feeling, but what I liked the most during my studies was the practice of getting feedback. Now, as an intern, I continue to like the same things: the family-like feeling in the office, the relaxed, inclusive atmosphere, and the feedback.
