Testimonial – Internship – Reinout Mertens


My internship at OrientaEuro was a unique opportunity to gain work experience in a welcoming environment. As a translator about to graduate, I jumped at the chance to translate in an actual professional business setting. The team at OrientaEuro was able to guide me throughout my internship while making me feel like a part of the team. At the same time I felt like I was making a real contribution to the company’s success. Now, after the internship, I believe I am more ready to advance in the work field and I have a better idea of where I want to go.

Testimonial – Internship – Kate Hughes


During my time at OrientaEuro, I was consistently encouraged to take on new challenges which allowed me to develop my existing skills and discover new ones – for example, as well as translation tasks, I was responsible for project research and development in my native and target languages. It was greatly satisfying for me to work closely with the director and other interns on projects that directly contributed to a company which makes such a positive difference in many people’s lives. I received personal feedback after individual tasks and at the end of my internship which helped me to understand my strengths and potential for the future. My experience with the company not only gave me opportunities to grow in my professional life, but also in my personal life. Living and working in a new culture was a truly enriching experience and I would recommend it to any student seeking a fulfilling internship in the future.

Testimonial – Career Coaching – Olivia Koentges


This was a massive wake up call. It was difficult and gratifying at the same time. Difficult because it stirs up a lot of things; emotions, and coming face to face with ambitions that you’ve abandoned along the way. “To see” you have “not seen” that you’ve drifted away from yourself over time, it’s painful for your ego. But to realise that the coach has succeeded, in such a small space of time, to help us understand what we’ve unfortunately left aside, it renews you. I’m not saying it’s easy once the coaching has finished, but it does give you back an immense energy.

Testimonial – Career Coaching – Sara Magnabosco


I decided to try coaching in a difficult moment in my career and I wanted to understand what other kind of jobs I could do. During the 4 sessions with my coach we did a lot more, thanks to his challenges I boosted my self confidence, helped me preparing job interviews, I understood that it’s good to trust my instinct and always think in a positive way. I recommend coaching to all the people that are facing work challenges or just want a change in their professional life. Speaking with someone who is there to listen and ask you the right questions really helps more that 1000 chats with friends. It’s a totally different kind of support.

OrientaEuro gave me very practical support to deal with leadership and management related dilemmas that are occupying a lot of my time and head space. They pushed me to see that it wasn’t just my organisation that has objectives and development needs; I do too! My coach also gave me some really simple and creative tools to help me think about my next steps. This turned out to be extremely useful as a major restructure was announced in my organisation 6 months after I had the coaching!
I have been recommending OrientaEuro’s coaching to people for the last year, since I had the coaching, and I will continue to do so!

Testimonial – Career Coaching – Colette Mennekens


I received the support of a coach who listened attentively and understood my expectations. I benefitted from their expertise through specialist professional tools, which helped me to see more clearly and move forward in my career development. My coach was able to adapt the programme based on my personal and specific needs at that time. I would recommend the coaching at OrientaEuro to my colleagues and family who are thinking about changing career and don’t know how to go about it. The coaching was really enjoyable and has even surpassed my expectations.
