Internships in France
France remains one of our top draws. IGS was hired by an international organization to handle their Paris-bound clients. We set up twelve different internship options around the city. Our students have worked with investment bankers in the fast-paced world of international finance. On the opposite spectrum, a client worked at the Perfume Museum sharing the history of scent with visitors. Photography is a high demand request and IGS paired a student with a fashion photographer in the city center. An anti-child trafficking advocacy group has handled the highest number of our clients. They have a footprint in developing countries where underage girls are caught up in illegal prostitution. Our clients have helped lead campaigns that promote awareness of this troubling trend. Outside of Paris we have placed students with a leading theater company in Nantes and marketing company in Monaco. Side trips are always a draw with Toulouse and Marseille high on their list.
