IESA’s internship office is coordinated by Amandine Cornette de Saint-Cyr who works closely with our professional network to place our students in part-time and full-time internship. She meets with our students to help them build their Linkin profiles and CV and is a talented mentor. 

Internships are optional for our international department, but highly recommended. 

IESA's program mentors will work closely with students to connect them to the professional sector and to help guide their pathway to an internship. Our internship coordinator posts opportunities on a regular bases and can assist students on a one to one basis. 

“Job dating” consists of brief ten-minute interviews between professionals and students.  An excellent exercise in thinking on one’s feet, job dating lets students promote themselves to potential employers and find an internship that suits them, while employers can pick out the most competent and motivated intern for the job.    

Our international art school places a strong emphasis on professional development. Students are encouraged to participate in a range of cultural opportunities throughout the year such as Art Paris, Paris Photo, Mama Festival etc.

IESA is proud to partner with prestigious cultural platforms and many of our students volunteer at these events discover the different types of jobs in the sector.
