J’ai eu la chance de participer à la session « pre-internship training » de SEO : une séance de formation intense, animée par un ancien professionnel de l’industrie. Cette journée a non seulement renforcé mes capacités techniques, mais a également augmenté ma confiance, j’ai aussi pu acquérir des compétences pour exceller dans mes stages à venir. 

En résumé, SEO Europe a été un élément essentiel à mon développement professionnel. Cette organisation m’a fourni des opportunités de réseautages incroyables, des compétences essentielles et bien plus encore.
