The main task of the French Embassy’s Press and Communication Office is to research and answer questions, mostly from the American public (journalists, businessmen, researchers, students, etc.).
Interns work as mediators between the French government and the public, with tasks that range from fielding questions, to writing articles and looking for photos for the News from France newsletter. Interns can also write reports on certain issues of media interest and background press releases for the embassy’s website. Web design interns help keep the embassy’s site updated. Most French Embassy interns come from the United States or France and have a background in political science or foreign affairs.
Open to currently enrolled, full-time students. Applicants must be proficient in French and fluent in English.
