I got acquainted with Samen Academy courses in Italy. If you want to work in the Netherlands and hear 'I'm happy with you' from your manager, participate in the practical barista course at Samen. This course enabled me to secure a job at one of the best and largest catering companies in the Netherlands with a monthly salary of 2500 euros.
