In 2014, I choose the work-study program of the master for the second year. It has been really easy for me to find an enterprise to take me in in the area of strasbourg and in this field. For the whole year I worked as a webmarketing assistant at the Cuisines Schmidt factory, a really wellknown brand of kitchen furniture. It was my first experience in an office. I strongly recommend this program to the students of the master because it is a real first job experience that can make the difference on a resume. Moreover it allows you to put into practice the knowledge you got from the master and to understand how the business world works. By being part of the marketing team at Schmidt, I got very lucky since a lot of responsabilities were entrusted to me. It was a real challenge that I overcame with success
