Canada versus France – Part Deux

Canada versus France – Part Deux

I know, the first part of this blog has recently been published, but I noticed a lot of differences these days. – Yesterday I watched TV, nothing fancy you might tell me.

Here we are, September 5th. Summer is coming to an end but it also means that it is the end of my 6-month internship at FPM3. I really appreciated this opportunity and working for a Canadian marketing agency allowed me to gain more experience but I have to say it was a lot of fun too. I am sure this valuable experience will help me to find a job as I would love to pursue my career in the marketing industry. I won’t forget this awesome team and want to thank everyone for their support and their input. I also encourage recent grads and students looking for a marketing internship to apply at FPM3. Not only will you have a great job but you will also find a great team and you will have the chance to get through all of the aspects of a marketing agency which is something…

Your next great marketing campaign is clicks away.
