“I had a complicated year. I got many interviews that didn’t work out. But I got through it.”
Today we talk to Juan José López, who studied Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Granada. “I chose telecommunications so that I would have more opportunities in the future. The beginning of this Bachelor’s degree is quite difficult. There is a kind of ‘weeding out’ of students at the beginning of it, but I got past this, because I knew what made me happy.” Juanjo got a Google Certification as a “Mobile Web Specialist” last year. He speaks Spanish and English.
