Intern Experience: Natalie's Event Internship in Paris

Karl Jacobs | November.26.2019

For many people around the world, Paris is an iconic city of romance, passion, elegance, and beauty.

Our interns arrive with bright eyes and big dreams, and Natalie C., a student at the University of Michigan, was no exception:

“For me, it’s always been Paris. As a little girl, I was twirling around in my ballet classes and reciting French phrases to my dance teacher. Growing up, I had Eiffel Tower posters up all over my room. In high school, I fell in love with the French language and my class trip to Quebec firmly cemented a dream to see Paris for myself.”

Her dream came true this past summer when she landed an internship in event management in Paris, France!

Reading Body Language Fluently Around the World

Jessica Dais | December.05.2018

 

As an intern living abroad, understanding body language cues both in and outside of the workplace is crucial. When practiced correctly, body language such as eye contact, facial expressions, and posture can greatly enhance everyday communication.

However, there are some gestures you’ll want to stay away from depending on where you are in the world! For example, in China, it’s very common to stand close to someone who is speaking, but in the United States, the same proximity might make the speaker feel uncomfortable.

How can you know which types of body language are appropriate for the country and culture you’re in? Keep reading for some helpful body language pointers for some of our top locations.
