A few words from previous participants:

“The program was incredibly helpful, as it provided me with the opportunity to interact extensively with an experienced professional in the sector and clarify countless doubts I had, obtain feedback on future professional plans, and develop a more sound idea of what is achievable after University… it gave me the chance to: review my job applications and better tailor them for the sector; discuss future trends and ways to adapt to them; and talk about some of the most relevant skills to develop in order to become an attractive professional.”
