My internship search

"Thanks to the Grenoble IAE’s network I found my internship easily."

My tasks

"During my internship I was in the Content and Partner Relation Department. I worked for the manager of this department. First, I selected the best pictures uploaded by people on Pik Wizard’s website. Next, I attached model releases with Wavebreak Media photo which are stocked in its database. Then, I added description, keywords and a title to the picture which didn’t have these informations. Finally, I helped the Art director to find new ideas for the shootings. Moreover, I helped my manager to establish a document which had all the new photos’ trends of each distributor like Adobe Stock. Finally, I checked the submission of the contents and followed the process of sending content to customers. To conclude, it was interesting to discover a company which creates multimedia contents and sales it to the online distributors leaders over the world. However, some of my tasks could be boring and repetitive."

Extra professional activities

"During my week-ends, I had the opportunity to visit the country with co-workers using a specialized travel agency. For example, I visited the ring of Kerry and its wonderful landscapes. Moreover, there are some places to visit in Cork. I had the opportunity to visit the University College of Cork. It is an old university which looks like the school in Harry Potter. It is easy to visit Ireland because of its small size."
