Student testimonial:

Antoine DEBRY
3rd year apprenticeship
Engineer Apprentice - Radio and Quality Expertise Team
"An apprenticeship at Orange was an opportunity that I seized without hesitation! Orange is a major player in the digital world, with a global presence and offering countless development opportunities. The future looks bright for apprentices at Orange!

Moreover, the significant periods of time spent in the company means that it is possible to carry out a project from start to finish: initiation, development, presentation to the teams, reporting etc. Projects are varied: from telecoms to computer science, but also with strong human interaction.

My supervisors - tutor, managers, etc. - trust me. I can work independently on my tasks, with support and guidance provided. The only drawback is the small scope of some of my tasks. Although, these projects often constitute a transition between two larger projects.

Working in the field of radio expertise means that I am at the cutting edge of Orange technologies - 4G +, VoLTE, etc - and in touch with several different business areas.

Today, I'm coming to the end of my apprenticeship and I hope to have the opportunity to continue this adventure at Orange!"
