Vera Schuijn, graduate of the bachelor’s programme Communication – A. de Jong Group
“I did my graduation project (for my bachelor’s programme Communications) at the A. de Jong Group. I researched the identity of the company so we could create a solid basis for the external communication of De Jong. It was such a fun and challenging assignment, characterized by lots of co-operation from the employees. This collaboration lifted my research to a higher level. In the meantime I truly felt supported by them and gained more self-confidence. After my graduation, I kept working for De Jong, putting my recommendations in a communication plan.
I like the pleasant working atmosphere within A. de Jong Group. From the beginning I was “one of the guys”, although my field of expertise is not directly connected with a specific department. I felt like an employee, not a trainee. During my internship nice friendships developed and they certainly are not over after this adventure. How I look back? This was such an informative and pleasant time. I was invited to prove and develop myself. I thank my dear colleagues for the opportunity and wish you much success in the future.”
After her internship, Vera joined us as Marketing & Communication Officer and has developed into Marketing & Communication Manager and KAM Manager.
