For those looking for a competitive edge in the European job market, as well as a dive into the heart of European culture, interning in France is an unforgettable opportunity. World Endeavors offers internship placements in both Paris and Nice, allowing interns to choose the experience to best fit their interests and career goals. Interns in France have the opportunity to live and work in Paris, the City of Light, or Nice, located in the French Riviera. Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.

At the same time, the small nation is also modern, urbanized and bustling. Known as the Start Up Nation, Israel’s technological sector is second only to Silicon Valley. This thriving sector drives the economy of Israel and paves the road for modern infrastructure, endless entertainment and whirling nightlife. The landscape of Israel is as diverse as its people. With pristine beaches along the Mediterranean coastline and snowcapped mountains in the north, opportunities arise for any type of adventure-seeker.
