Varied missions

Saint-Jo Sup students in communication internship

Many students chose the internship route to collaborate on the event. Thus, 14 students from the Saint-Jo Sup establishment are today doing an internship in a communications agency and an events agency in Le Havre. Their missions are as numerous as they are varied:

  • assistance to event project managers on the communication part and the customer relations aspect
  • support for the Espace kids team
  • reception of VIPs from the press relations operations of the Transat Jacques Vabre (Club Entreprise and Bistrot des Chefs)
  • support on the highlights of the Transat Jacques Vabre
  • ensures compliance with the Corporate Social Responsibility policy in hospitality areas

It's super interesting to work with the skippers because we learn a lot about the world of sailing and the maritime world, which were completely unknown to me until now.
