Whatever option you choose, we’ll help you get ready for your adventure and be right there with you every step of the way!
IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE TRACK
AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED WITH OTHERS, AND IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE WORLD OF BUSINESS, VOLUNTEER WORK, OR HUMANITARIAN AID.
An Internship in France or Abroad
After the first part of the TAKE ME UP program, you might have discovered a field you think you would be interested in pursuing; or maybe you want to get some work experience, in France or abroad, to strengthen your résumé, build your network, and start thinking about that first job. In either case, there’s no better way to get started than an internship!
You’ll learn what it’s really like in the field and have an opportunity to use all the new skills you’ve learned with TAKE ME UP.
You will have a wide range of options to choose from in many different professional areas. Your TAKE ME UP coach, as well as the entire team, will provide whatever support and guidance you need along the way to make your internship a meaningful, and maybe life-changing, experience.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CHANGE OF SCENERY, AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER NEW CULTURES, OR MAYBE A CHANCE TO IMPROVE YOUR FRENCH, YOUR SPANISH, YOUR RUSSIAN, OR YOUR MANDARIN? TAKE ME UP WILL HELP YOU FIND EXACTLY WANT YOU NEED.
A study by the Institute of International Education has shown that students who study abroad develop their self-confidence and an ability to evolve in an intercultural environment, as well as qualities like curiosity, flexibility, adaptability, and open-mindedness. Essentially, that’s everything a prospective employer is looking for in an employee and everything you will need to find personal fulfillment for the rest of your life.
