Great experience in Paris

The company was great. Had the possibility to really get the most out of this experience. Being in Paris also gave me the chance to improve french during my stay. I would suggest to do at least 2 month so as to be involved really in the company’s life. Therefore recommended! It builds your resume and leaves you enriched especially in terms of practice which sometimes is left aside in university. The process was very smooth, lots of advices about how to prepare for the interview and in general it was worth.

Life Changing experience

During my internship with Flavors of Paris, I took on various projects to enhance the company's outreach and operations. This included reaching out to partners to inform them about their inclusion in our product, collaborating on creating QR-coded cards to boost reviews and site reach, managing email marketing campaigns for subscriber engagement, assisting in invoicing with my boss Lisa, and providing hardware solutions. These experiences allowed me to develop a range of new skills that proved valuable in both the internship and my own business endeavors.

Incroyable

The whole experience changed my life and allowed me to grow and build myself and my identity. I learned how to be independent, how to explore, and how to embrace change in a positive way. I was enlightened by the amount of different historically and culturally significant places I got to see, the dozens of museums I got to visit, and the many foods I got to try. I want to move to France now, and I’m currently looking at ways to achieve that. As someone who also deals with depression regularly, I truly felt supported by those around me, especially our program coordinator Aurore. Aurore helped me feel cared for and included. She was extremely supportive and personable, she helped me with my internship and was one of my photography models, she was an amazing friend and even helped me plan a dinner for my birthday. She went above and beyond and made my internship experience ten times greater than what I imagined it could be. She was able to give everyone the chance to explore and learn about France (where our internship program was) and she immersed us into the culture in a way that allowed us to understand what it was like to live in Paris. She knew how to cheer us up when we were feeling down.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice to future travelers is to list all the things you want to do in your chosen destination, and once you get there, invite anyone else in the program to accompany you on your adventures so that you get to experience something entirely new and you get to share the moment while doing so.
Pros
  • Creates confidence
  • Supports tons of growth
  • Enriches experience and knowledge
Cons
  • Can be confusing to navigate a destination
  • Getting your phone to work is hard
  • Can be slightly scary

My Experience With Absolute Internship

I participated in the 2 month long intern abroad program in Paris during the summer of 2022 and had an incredible time. I was paired with a company doing marketing, which was my preferred area of work. I learned a lot about the different work culture and gained experience that will be valuable as I start my career back home. My program coordinator, Aurore, was an incredible resource throughout! She offered me guidance as I navigated a new and big city and worked for a new employer. I am so grateful to her for her kindness and support. She truly elevated my entire experience!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice would be to take advantage of the opportunity and really explore the city fully. I loved walking around an area and seeing things that the locals do as opposed to sticking with the tourist attractions. Those are great to see too but you can observe so much more about the new culture and the way of life by exploring areas away from commercialized and touristy areas that are filled with people from America and the same as what you see back home.
Pros
  • Support is always available
  • Work experience that stands out
  • Expands your world view

Absolute Paris!

Absolute Internship was an all round amazing experience from the easy application process, great internship placement opportunities and social aspect. The team was incredibly supporting when it came to the process, organising interviews and making sure we had all the information needed prior to the placement. Aurore and the team in Paris we’re integral in making my month unforgettable! They immediately made sure we felt safe and comfortable and organised amazing activities to get to know the group and make the most of the city. Aurore was fab in getting to know each of us well and suggest activities etc that would take our individual interests. My placement itself has helped me gain essential industry skills and extend my network with colleagues I continue to work alongside today!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make the most of the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and explore an unknown city with the invaluable recommendations of the team!
Pros
  • Highly organised and efficient placement process
  • Professionally rewarding experience
  • Incredible social aspect
Cons
  • Short length of placement

Fantastic Experience

My summer in Paris with Absolute Internship was an ideal balance of structure and independence. The way the program was structured allowed me to have a fully immersive and formative experience in Paris - feeling like I was truly able to appreciate and settle into the culture - while being confident that I had a support system around me whenever I need it. The housing was pristine, and the ability to access different facets of Paris through Absolute's recommendations and formal programming was a positive addition. Absolute is a great opportunity to have an experience abroad that is both personally and professionally fulfilling.

Paris internship

I had such a great summer in Paris and met so many fun people. Our team leader Aurore helped organise so many fun activities for everyone and made sure that everyone was supported. I really feel like I got to know Paris during the short time I was there, and I loved every moment. The accommodation was super comfortable and good location, and I learned so many invaluable skills at my internship. It made such a difference adding this experience to my CV. If I’d have known how great it was going to be I would have definitely stayed longer.

Great summer experience in Paris

It was such a memorable summer. Everyone was so friendly, and there were constantly activities to get to know the other interns better. Aurore was so nice and supportive the whole time and she greeted us with a picnic on a boat! And it was very easy to get support all the time. There were tours around the city, dinners together, visits together etc. On top of that, I got to intern in a cool firm so I also got industry experience out of it and learned a lot. It was a great start to a wholly amazing experience :)
