Intern in Paris

The City of Lights, as Paris is known, is one of the world's leading business and cultural centers and a fantastic place to intern! Its influence on politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts make it one of the world's major cities where an internship is sure to enhance your resumé.  6-month placements  are paid in France so it’s a great place to choose for a longer term assignment. Internships are only available for a length of 2 or 6 months. Durations between 2 and 6 months cannot be accommodated.   There are placements in most sectors of industry for those with intermediate French skills and we can always arrange language classes for those who want to improve their proficiency.  (In some cases, we will admit students with no French skills at all.)  France's location in Europe allows you to easily travel to other countries and experience different customs and cultures - take the high-speed ‘Chunnel’ train to London or hop down to Barcelona for some tapas and a weekend at the beach!  

Your internship placement will be customized to you and your goals in your chosen field.  Your resume/CV and cover letter (describing the types of internship placements you would like and the skills you wish to work on during the program) are used to search for your placement.  Our placement coordinator in Paris works with a large variety of companies and the organization you are placed with will be determined by many factors including company needs along with your education, experience and background.

I am definitely enjoying the internship, it has been such a great experience so far. I've really enjoyed adapting to 'work life' and delving into the world of business management. I feel very comfortable in the office, the coworkers and boss are great and the whole internship has been really rewarding.
