#Nota de F: Trabajo de campo voluntario. Un debate complejo. ¿Deberías solicitar esta oferta? Si tu alternativa en este momento es quedarte en casa o poner copas, mejor vete a Suecia a aprender y ganar experiencia. Cuando en el futuro consigas un puesto de mayor responsabilidad, cambia el sistema desde dentro. De todas formas, intenta negociar un sueldo una vez te confirmen la plaza y busca otras fuentes de financiación.
