Marie Requirand has now been on a VIE contract for more than a year as a Test & Quality Engineer for Exensor. Set up by Business France, the VIE International Internship allows young French graduates to undertake a secure professional assignment abroad of 6 to 24 months.

This year, Business France Nordics organized a Grand Prix VIE Sweden 2023, in which the 180 people currently on VIE assignments in the country had the chance to send a video summarizing their professional and personal experience since they arrived in Sweden.

After submitting her application, Marie won the big prize awarded during a ceremony that took place on June 19th in Stockholm at the Embassy of France in Sweden.

Have a look at Marie’s video, presenting her professional background in the Bertin Technologies group and her current VIE mission at Exensor:

A few words from Marie about her VIE experience: “I’m really proud of winning this prize and to be able to represent the French culture and way of working abroad. I’m glad to be part of the VIE journey, it’s a truly enriching and rewarding experience, both professionally and personally. Thanks again to Bertin Technologies, Exensor and Business France for this amazing opportunity.”

Big congratulations.

Next step? The Grand Prix VIE Nordics in 2024!
