Stories from our Interns

I feel very useful because the managers need us to find work-study participants who best meet their expectations. We are truly the middleman between the work-study participant and the manager. You have to know how to work in teams, come up with new ideas and listen to others. I’m lucky to have a manager who listens to the team and in addition, since I work with other interns and work-study participants, we can spend time together, such as having lunch or going out after work.

Recruitment Advisor

What motivates me the most about my internship are the numerous and varied missions: each one is an opportunity to discover a new department and approach specific problems and challenges that are as strategic and human as they are financial. I’m fortunate to work in a stimulating and challenging environment and evolve in a team where team spirit isn't a value just on paper - we are advised and supported every day!

Mergers & Acquisitions

Thanks to my internship, I did both Projects and Operations (maintenance and availability management, life cycles, etc). What is rewarding is that whatever the internship mission, you never work alone. Interns are in constant contact with different departments and, above all, work in teams. And because of this, we can provide a service to SG Cloud portal users that meets their needs!
