A HOGENT staff member testifies

"The main factor that motivates me to work at HOGENT is the autonomy I enjoy. I'm free to shape content, free to determine when I schedule my work, and free to speak my mind. Additionally, I also appreciate the variety of tasks I'm offered, which involve personnel management, service provision, research, project development, and interacting with students. Every day is different, and it's never boring."
