The Agro-Know internship program seems to be on fire during the last months; a lot of people decide to join Agro-Know in the context of an internship, during which they get to learn about Agro-Know as well as about all the work that we are doing in different fields while at the same time they offer their fresh view and ideas in the implementation of various tasks.
Vasilis Kourousias is an agronomist with previous experience in project management, who is currently supporting the Project Management department of Agro-Know. Vasilis was kind enough to take some time and provide us with his responses to our questions, which you may find right below:
You are one of the latest interns to join the Agro-Know team. Would you like to share some info on how you found us and what drew your attention in the Agro-Know job opening?
It was during last August (?) that I first I saw a job vacancy from Agro-Know. This was the first time I got in contact with Agro-Know, and start learning about Agro-Know’s projects and vision. Agro-Know drew my attention since it serves the agri-food domain in a very modern and innovative way. As I was living in Brussels by that time, I start following Agro-Know news via the company’s social media and websites. As soon as I came back in Greece and a new vacancy shown up, I contacted again Agro-Know team and here I am! J
