Thanks to my five months at DG-CNECT, G3 Web Accessibility, Multilingualism and Safer Internet in Luxembourg , I could not only widen the scope of my EU-policies knowledge, but also got to deploy key skills which will certainly further and boost my professional career in the future. The traineeship is a multitasking, challenging, fast-paced but thrilling experience which enables you to tackle with a great deal of last-minute situations. Aside from having been a trainee, I was elected Vice-President of the Trainees Committee and got to also sit a CAST exam which I successfully passed and thanks to which I was offered to be  Assistant to the Head of Unit, a position which will certainly contribute to thrive my professional path in the EU Institutions. Mental endurance, hard-work and self-belief will get you there where you're aiming to be.
