Hi there

I suggest you send a c.v to

[email protected]

It is a commerical medical cannabis facility in Portugal where we are actively recruiting for new staff. You could begin as an agricultural technician.



Thank you for your quick reply,

I will definitely check it out.

Have a great day

Your field of interest is a good choice. Now the demand for it is high (as it always has been) and you won’t lose anything by trying an internship. I don’t know about you, but I applied for an internship at city-internships.com and got accepted. I went to London (my field is financing) and for eight weeks I learned all kind of new things. That internship was very useful. You say you live in Luxembourg and have a degree in Mediterranean and tropical plants. You could try Italy or Spain. I think those places are the best to start with. Good luck with your learning.
