  1. Dear Paul
    I’me very happy to hear from you. Do you remember me? I’m Gilda Rota Director of the Career Service in Padova University. In Padova we are trying to develop for our students and graduates some experiences(internship or job) in other countries. Do you think as a freelance you can help us and how much does it cost?
    Let me know thanks in advance
    Good luck

  2. Dear Gilda

    It is lovely to hear from you and yes of course I remember you. Sorry for the delay in responding. How long would the placements be for, such as 2 weeks? Are the students happy to arrange their own travel and accommodation? What are the areas most students want to work in such as banking and finance or the media? Would the students expect to be paid and if so what salary would they expect? Sorry for so many questions! I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best wishes
