What do our (former) interns say?
To say that the internship at Foreigners taught me new things is to say nothing! This company is a very special place, with amazing people and wonderful atmosphere, which help you not only learn new things in PR and marketing but also grow as a person and co-worker, find a right solution in difficult situations and constantly challenge yourself. Lucie is an amazing and considerate boss who always guides in the wisest way and at the same time lets you self-organize and do your work independently. Teammates are always happy to help and assist which makes an atmosphere within a company truly special and supportive. Work for Foreigners? My answer is definitely yes!

My internship at Foreigners was very significant in my life and I am very grateful to belong to this company for 6 months. It was my very first long working stay and the first time I lived abroad. I left my comfort zone and they gave me the opportunity to live through it which was rich in the successes and failures of all kinds. Indeed, I was successful in a number of issues, such as creativity. I was able to use my ideas and broaden my understanding, as I gained autonomy and trust from Lucie. She gave me a lot of liberty in my daily tasks. I learned a lot, whether at the office or in my personal life. When I arrived in the Czech Republic, it was challenging to figure out how I would manage my life alone, without my bearings and how I will “start” a new life abroad. This internship was a good opportunity to live a new professional experience, discover a new country and new people. It was very enriching and I will never forget this part of my life.
- Camille Springaux, France, an intern in Prague office (February 2018 - July 2018)
Working at Foreigners has been a great opportunity to turn what was part of a hobby into a career path. PR and Social Media managing was a secondary part of my personal projects and here I could really learn and understand the big difference it can make on a company when you have knowledgeable and dedicated professionals taking care of a company's image. Anyone thinking about starting a career in PR will find at Foreigners an incredible team ready to teach and hopefully learn something new too. My internship started as a 5-month internship but due to a change of jobs and lack of time I reduced my hours and extended my internship so I can continue the initial projects we had established. To anyone thinking about joining Foreigners, you will have a great time.
