Internships are a great way to gain experience before graduating. There are many reasons for this: the many opportunities for mentorship, ability to develop soft skills vital to the workplace, gain exposure to the workforce and building connections being some. In this, applying for 2022 internships can be a huge boost to your future career. 

Of course, an internship anywhere is beneficial — but there’s no denying the pull of working for a short stint in Paris. The city of love is famed worldwide for its features in media, impact on culture and the arts, and being the central hub for fashion and luxury. For marketing and editorial-minded students, working in such a city can prove to be invaluable. 

Throw in the city’s progressive working policies — minimum wage in France is one of the highest in Europe, and French culture encourages a work-life balance — and it makes for the ideal destination for 2022 internships. 

Here are some 2022 internships in Paris that international students can look out for:

Marketing and Communications Internship at Luko

Every business needs to be able to communicate with its clients. From pushing its brand messaging to creating enticing digital media, effective marketing is vital to a company’s growth and presence in the local and international landscape. This means that gaining experience in the field can do wonders in helping you become more attractive to the workforce. 

One such company that can give you great exposure in this regard is Luko. As the #1 insurtech — which refers to the technological innovations being developed within the insurance industry — in France and Europe, you’ll be well-placed to observe the marketing and communications strategies implemented by a large-scale company. At the same time, you’ll be empowering thousands of policyholders into taking care of their homes. 

Specifically, you will work with the brand team to manage briefs and follow up on content production with designers and providers. The job description further reads: “You’ll help with operational project implementation but also work in collaboration with other teams at Luko to address their creative content needs. You’ll also be contributing to improving our process and tools, helping the brand team to make our brand shine both internally and externally.”

Digital Campaign Assistant – Graduate Internship at Ogury

Mobile brand advertising — which refers to advertising designed for smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices — is similarly important in our day and age. New statistics show that in 2022, 91.08% of people in the world are cell phone owners. That translates to over 7.26 billion smart and feature phone users — a significantly large consumer base that is growing by the day. 

A graduate internship charting out the digital campaign strategy of a business, then, can be extremely beneficial to launching your career in such a field. Working with a major company such as Ogury, which has over 1,500 advertisers and has become one of the leading French tech success stories, will do even more in this regard. 

Some of the skills you’ll learn at Ogury include: 

  • Programming, monitoring and optimising mobile advertising campaigns 
  • Analysing delivery metrics 
  • Tracking internal stats and client reports
  • Providing feedback on campaign performance
