I've been lucky enough to work for the Toulouse and Paris agencies.

How has your experience as a work-study student at 5 DEGRES helped you to develop your skills?

AHMED: My work-study experience helps me to develop my skills in several ways: I put my theoretical knowledge into practice, hone my technical skills through real-life projects, improve my interpersonal skills by working with different people, and develop my complex situation-solving skills by facing real-life challenges.


KIERA: I play a very versatile role in the Com' team! It allows me to work on a wide variety of subjects, and to continually develop my skills. I get to put all the theory I learn at school into practice, which helps me to strengthen my understanding and deepen my learning. Since the start of my work-study program, I've gained in autonomy and, above all, in responsibility for subjects that interest me and are close to my heart. 


SARAH: My experience as a work-study student was a real forge of skills. I developed crucial skills in negotiation, communication, project management and leadership. This experience has enabled me to improve my data analysis and my ability to make informed decisions.

Is there a specific project or achievement as a work-study student that you're particularly proud of and would like to share? you'd like to share?

This success was the result of creating and maintaining positive business relationships with major customers, demonstrating our commitment to serving our partners to the best of our ability.


SARAH: One achievement I'm particularly proud of as a work-study student at 5 DEGRES is having had the opportunity to support the world leader in the automotive industry through the coordination of three Consultants on assignment. It was an exceptional experience that reinforced my professional skills and self-confidence.


KIERA: Having done very few events before joining 5 DEGRES, I'm particularly proud of the meet-ups, parties and team-buildings I've been able to organize since January. The Toulouse Summer Party, which took place in July 2023, was the biggest event I've organized so far!

Thanks to his dynamic and confidence-building tutoring style, I am significantly strengthening my professional understanding and skills.

She provides me with invaluable advice and guidance to help me understand the tasks assigned to me.
