At the end of my studies in accountancy and fiscality at Artevelde University College in Ghent, I was delighted to be able to do my work placement with Jan De Nul Group. Moreover, I had the chance to do that work placement in Mexico City. Working far from home with new people, quite a challenge in itself. Moreover, everything that I’d learnt and seen at school came together in practice. A great sense of independence. A kick!
