They talk about it
In 2014, I choose the work-study program of the master for the second year. It was quite easy for me to find a relevant host company in strasbourg and its environs in this field. For the whole year I worked as a webmarketing assistant at the Cuisines Schmidt factory, a very wellknown brand of kitchen furniture. It was my first experience in an office. I strongly recommend this Master’s program 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
