Your Curriculum Vitae (résumé) will be sent to the companies to which you apply. From the CVs companies receive, employers will schedule interviews and hire student(s) who will be a good fit for their company. Interviews will be conducted by phone or Skype.
Begin looking for other internships as a back-up. Placement by the International Internships Office is not guaranteed. The best way to 100% sure of working abroad this summer is to secure a position yourself.
See the Funding section for help on locating resources to help secure your own position.
Format and Contents of the French CV:
Although most of the information will be the same as an English resume, there are a few notable differences between an American resume and a French CV. French CVs must include a photograph (top, right), and information about age, marital status and nationality.
Remember: this is all the employer will see of you so it should reflect who you and your talents. You can begin with your Objectif as a header on your CV, but remember that you need to tell them what you can offer the company. It should not be about you going to France to improve your French (although, that is, of course, one of your objectives).
Here are some sample CVs in French:
- Academics & Requirements
- Academic Advising
- Transfer Information
