For many years AMSI has been offering marketing, accounting and property management internships to young people from all over the world. Every intern had an impact on the daily business and has become a part of the AMSI family. We were wondering about their reasons to go abroad. Moreover what their overall experience is and how they benefit from taking their internship at AMSI.
Today we have Florent from France who joined AMSI San Diego for a marketing internship.
As soon as my plane landed in San Diego, I knew that it was going to be a great experience for me. Working with AMSI San Diego has enabled me to gain professional skills that I consider as valuable on the labor market. The tasks are very diverse and every day is a different day and that is exactly what I was looking for in the first place.
The internship in San Diego offers a wide variety of working areas, I get to know and work in areas as marketing, accounting but also property management. I would like to work in the marketing field later, but I know that my plans can change and that I might end up working in a different area that may not be related to my field of studies. Therefore I think that taking an internship at AMSI San Diego is very interesting, since you acquire skills in several fields. In addition, I can enjoy the fact that I have a great internship tutor as well as great colleagues. To be honest, I would not have thought that it was possible to have so much fun by working in real estate, and this is mostly due to the team.
On a personal scale, I consider myself as being more independent and confident thanks to this internship. This is mainly due to the fact that the colleagues and my tutor give me enough freedom to fulfill my daily assignments and projects. The fact that they don’t check if everything I do is correct and done properly gives me confidence and helps me to feel as being a part of the team.
Furthermore, I consider myself as lucky doing my internship in a city like San Diego. This is my first time in the United States and so far it has been nothing but exciting. France and the US are quite similar in the sense that they both are Western countries, but also different in many ways. I came from a small town. So you can imagine what a huge difference it is for me to be in a city as San Diego, which counts more than a million inhabitants. However, I really enjoy the way of life over here, especially the amazing weather!
As a conclusion, I would say that doing an internship in the US with AMSI, will not only help me on a professional scale to find a good job when I go home, but also on a personal scale in nothing but one of the greatest city I have ever lived in.
