Sharing experiences of Job Shadowing

Rina, from Vienna University of Economics and Business, experienced ENGAGE.EU Job shadowing in France during the Expedition Week in Toulouse Capitole University

Why would you recommend it?

International mobility and job shadowing offer great opportunities for professional and personal development for staff. It is always a two-way learning experience that enables networking, professional exchange as well as cultural exchange. 

Why was it an enriching experience?

Meeting colleagues from ENGAGE.EU partner universities and learning about the good practices of working on different tasks in our joint programmes was a professionally and culturally rich experience. This exchange helped me to establish new contacts and strengthen existing ones. Such experiences help to widen our perspectives and bring forward new ideas that can be put into practice in adapted forms, ultimately enhancing efficiency and increasing cooperation among our partner universities as well as with external public and private institutions.
