Sarah joined Arcadis back in June 2015 as an intern for the summer in branding support to enrich her experiences, expand her knowledge in marketing and work in the “real world.”

Sarah found the marketing team and marketing manager very welcoming. "I admirably look up to all of them to try to gain as much knowledge as I possibly can from their advice and experiences. I have decided to continue embarking on this journey of knowledge and am now working as a part-time employee for Arcadis," commented Sarah.

I was able to socialize with my coworkers and learn more about who they are. In addition, it was a delightful experience to witness the expression on the raffle winners faces when they found out their prizes! It was truly humbling experience as well to help raise money for a charity that helped sick children who couldn't afford surgeries and medicines."
