International work experience contributes exponentially to the soft skills employers are searching for such as resilience, adaptability, problem solving, and cultural awareness. Use the summer months to strategically enhance your résumé and guide your post-graduation plans.

The Paris Summer Internship program is an extension of the Paris program; a semester within the current academic year must be completed prior to participation. At the conclusion of the spring semester, students are eligible to complete a two-month, full-time professional internship.

A valuable complement to the academic and cultural immersion of a semester or year abroad, an internship in Paris provides meaningful work experience in a student’s preferred industry and the opportunity to improve language skills in a business environment.

[The internship] was the perfect way to combine my two major academic endeavors: French and pre-medical studies. It was also a great opportunity to improve my French and gain experience in international research studies and collaboration.
