Au cours de ma thèse, j’ai acquis des compétences précieuses que je mets au service de mon entreprise : une grande efficacité et la capacité à trouver des solutions aux difficultés. J’ai acquis un savoir être : j’apprends plus vite, et j’ai plus d’autonomie que d’autres, ce que mes employeurs apprécient.
