Clémence Mouelle

ESGCI-Paris Bachelor of Communication and Public Relations, winter 2014 French Public Relations Intern In California

“Doing this internship in California was an amazing professional and personal experience; I had the chance to improve my skills in communication and public relations, but also to develop other skills like management and HR thanks to Ronnie who made me take advantage of his experience. He is very professional and helpful. Also, I learned a different way to work with others, to combine ideas to make the team go ahead. I learned a lot, everyone of us was bringing something, it was really rewarding. I am very proud of all the work we did and that we will continue to do. I know it is a great asset in my resume. Now, I look forward going to Ghana to be part of the outreach team doing the campaigns and complete my experience in the organization.”

We also provide a Certificate of Completion to all successful volunteers. A majority of our volunteers are interested in advancing their professional and academic careers through entry into various graduate, medical, and professional schools. In today’s competitive society one’s future success often depends on the level of participation one has in terms of relating relevant principles and theories to practice in the real world.   The Certificate of Completion we grant has proven to be an essential tool for interns enhancing their academic and professional profiles and competitiveness. The certificate duly satisfies proof of internship requirements mandated by colleges and universities.
