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 Gaelle Carminati from France who joined AMSI San Francisco for a property management internship.
I am from France and study Foreign Languages Applied to Business. In order to complete my Bachelor’s Degree I have to take an internship in a foreign country. Therefore I decided to come to San Francisco and chose this city to gain some experience away from France and it indeed has been a great choice. Furthermore I wanted to be immersed in the American culture for at least three months.
Coming to SF allowed me to fully explore and discover the city. Indeed, everyone is able to recognize San Francisco’s famous monuments when they appear in a movie or a series. Having the opportunity to experience the way of life and meet its residents is something that nobody should miss. The people in the city are very friendly and welcoming and beyond the city is very beautiful, especially its landscape.
However, as I said the purpose of my travel was to take an internship and therefore I applied at a real estate brokerage, at AMSI in San Francisco. During this internship I had the opportunity to work with nice people who always help you when you need a hand and never hesitate to do so, this made me feel being a part of the AMSI family. I was assigned to the Property Management Department and at the beginning I was assigned to many administrative work, which helped me to get a better understanding for real estate and helped me to gain many professional skills. I learnt to read a lease agreement and gained lots of valuable real estate related vocabularies. Thanks to my internship I improved my English language skills and it was one of my main goals and reasons to take this internship abroad. This internship also helped me to figure out what I want and don’t want to do after I’m done with my studies. Thanks to the property management and marketing duties that I was assigned to, I have gained some knowledge that will be very valuable for my studies.
What I will always remember is my great time in San Francisco. I have never seen such a multicultural city; you can meet people coming from all around the world and it has allowed me to discover new cultures and a new way of thinking. This experience has also helped me to get to know myself better; when you are gone from your family and from home you have to learn to go your own way, which is sometimes difficult but helped me to grow personally. Therefore it’s more than a professional experience, it is a life experience that everyone should take.
