Testimonies about work-study program

"Taking on a student in a company is an opportunity for us to grow and to help others grow at the same time. The challenge is certainly to benefit from a one-time reinforcement, but it is also to prepare for the future by investing in the training and skills development of the student, and thus to facilitate his or her recruitment into the company on a permanent basis. Finally, it is particularly rich for us to benefit from the fresh eyes of the younger generation, with new practices, ideas and tools."


CEO et Co-founder of Klaxo

" The strength of a team lies in the difference of the individuals who compose it. In a small team of seniors over 50 years old, having a young person of 18-20 years old and listening to him make us to think differently, to have another point of view, to diversify opinions. At the beginning, it's a big investment in time. Of course, they don't know anything at the beginning, and they have everything to learn. This is why KNOWING HOW TO BE is fundamental. But what a challenge for each of us in the team. This permanent obligation to re-explain, to reformulate things at the base, forces us to realize that, no, everything is not automatic. If the student doesn't understand, it's because we didn't explain it well, and consequently, we don't express ourselves well in front of customers, suppliers, partners... The learning process is mutual."
