My soft skills after three months of internship

In this particular situation of a mostly remote internship I have developed and nurtured a different set of soft skills from the one I imagined at the beginning or even when I applied for this opportunity. For example, interactions with the rest of the team were less likely to become small talks, which in a way helped me going straight to the point with my messages: before the internship, I would go around something for too long maybe. Then I learned to manage time, and not let time manage me: working from home may lead to you never really stop working, while I believe it is very important (and I have experienced this firsthand) to take more breaks than what I would normally allow me to take. Another aspect that I believe it has been very important for this internship has been proactiveness: behind the screen of Teams' chatrooms, it is very easy to get lost or to simply remain passive, while on the other hand it's very important to...

The law provides a list of rights and obligations of sponsors hosting apprentices and includes parameters governing the whole apprenticeship period.

There is broad consensus in Europe that apprenticeships can be an efficient way of addressing labour market imbalances.

The European Commission also manages the European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA).
