Hi I am looking for a work placement / Internship in France as part of my college course in July 2010 for 8 months duration. I am currently studying Construction in Dublin and I am trying to get work experience with a building contractor.

I am a mature student 24 years old and was previosly a plumber. I have always wanted to work in France to learn the language and experience the lifestyle and culture. My level of french is basic but improving slowly. I am taking French classes in my local adult education centre.

If anyone has advice or info on the best places to look for work it would be greatly appreciated.

The way most French students line up a "stage" (work experience/ internship) is to simply call around and/or send out resumes to all the companies in the area that look vaguely related to their field.

Pick an area you think you'd like to live in and hit up all the construction companies you can find in the Pages Jaunes - or at least those that strike your fancy (house construction vs. whatever other specialties you find). There are certain advantages to a business person to hiring a stagière (mainly no social charges) and most companies in France get requests for stages positions all the time.
Cheers,
Bev
