Benefits of an Internship Abroad
The benefits of an internship abroad at La Giraudière are explained, plus how the chance to develop a foreign language can further complement your Resumé or CV. Ever wondered whether you should volunteer or intern now is the chance to do both and overseas aswell.
Canadian Interns at La Giraudiere
Volunteer overseas or Internship abroad
Today when applying for work, or looking to be recruited, you need every edge there is.
A few years ago the 'must have' on any respectable CV or Resumé was to have participated in a
volunteers' project and ideally - and more impressively - a project that was overseas. Prior to that it
was to have studied abroad, or taken part in a language immersion course abroad. Lately, Internships
have been the 'done thing'. Here's the chance to tick all of those boxes in one go - an internship that
involves a worthwhile volunteering project, that involves living in France, and that could improve
your social, business, and language skills.
A Unique French Experience
La Giraudière offers you a unique opportunity to boost your CV/resumé and gain valuable work
experience that will give you and your career prospects that extra uniqueness needed. The Internship
offered by La Giraudière offers French language improvement, really meaningful work experience,
the opportunity to be part of an international project, immersion into rural French village life, and the
chance to make contacts that will last a life time.
Experience and Contacts will last a lifetime
LG's volunteer project and other programs attract volunteers and guests from around the world, and
most months of the year a diverse international group is assembled. Unlike the volunteers'
experience at La Giraudière, there will be a “learning agenda” structured into the intern role to
help promote your career prospects and your personal development.
It will help you to learn about project management from inside an organisation and decide if this is the
right career field for you. This is an ideal chance to observe the dynamics of a work place and see if
it matches expectations, and to learn new skills and add to your knowledge base (and your CV!)
while gaining confidence in your abilities.
You will have the opportunity to show that you have initiative, are reliable, and have a sense of responsibility, and you should end up with a sense of accomplishment by contributing to a worthwhile organization, having met new people along the way. The experience and contacts that you can gain from this will remain with you long after you leave La Giraudière.
The first all-inclusive Learning Internship in France
Another benefit of the La Giraudière internship is that it is all 'in house' - it is us
that have marketed our internship, it is us that will accommodate the interns and it is here that the internship will be
located. You will not be going somewhere else for your internship orientation or for your language course prior to
taking up your internship, - it will take place here at La Giraudière. What is included is not just the accommodation
and the meals, there is so much more.
