Internship in Optimy SA in Belgium
After finishing Economics engineering studies at Vilnius Gediminas technical university, I decided to take opportunity and get working experience abroad and I found Optimy SA in Brussels, Belgium.
Optimy is software product that helps brands and foundations to optimize sponsorship, CSR, grant and community investment projects lifecycle. For five months in Optimy I was working in Finance & Administration Office, while being there I get the chance to know the company from inside. I did a lot of interesting and different tasks during internship, from office support to accounting, invoicing, payment preparation, communication with clients and suppliers etc. During this period I learned lots of new things, improved my English and French skills.
Optimy is very dynamic and international company that has employees and trainees from all around the world, from Europe to Australia and USA. Working in this international environment was easy to integrate and find new interesting friends.
I could say that Brussels is the city for everyone, because every person could find interesting places and activities to do. From different museums, galleries, calm parks, sports activities to loud bars and night clubs. In my opinion, Brussels is the city where is easy to live because of it’s international environment. Here you can meet people from all around the world, who are working in European Union institutions and international companies. All these people are curious to explore new city, new places, new people and get new experiences.
After this experience in Brussels, I could confidentially say, that it was one of the best experiences and decisions I made. I have a lot of new friends from different countries. I got more working experience and now it is easier to find a permanent job. This is unforgettable experience and I strongly recommend for everyone who has this chance, do not miss it and you will never regret it.
