«My internship at Ophelix has given me the opportunity to be an employee in the industry instead of an intern. The time they invested in me was truly amazing and has given me a lot. Actually being treated as an employee of the company in a very pleasant and fun team to work with, has helped me grow professionally. The responsibilities that come with the job helped me to develop skills as planning and communicating. Skills I was not even aware about that there was still so much to develop in. After this meaningful and educational internship, I feel more prepared for what the future holds!» – Sanne Berende, Breda University of Applied Science, The Netherlands.

“My internship at Ophelix provided me with valuable hands-on experience in the MICE field. I was able to get to know all parts of the job – working on a client request, shaping a proposal, discussing the details and finally arranging the event for the client. It gave me a better idea about what skills and knowledge I should further improve in my studies. During my internship I was able to work independently on different projects and was thereby able to take over responsibility for my own tasks. I also enjoyed being part of an international team, that works together closely in a great working environment.” – Franziska Pabel, FH Westküste, Germany.
