Starting from July 2022, I was an intern at Diversophy, which is a company that focuses on creating educational games with a purpose of increasing knowledge of specific cultural groups and competencies in individuals. Upon my arrival to Mandelieu La-Napoule, I was warmly welcomed by my work supervisor, George Simons, and another intern that had arrived two days prior to me. Just like me, it was their first internship abroad and we were both excited to start our work. I was working as a Marketing Associate, where my main duties were to post about the new game updates, propose new marketing plans, host webinars and update the games within my scope of interest. Not only I enjoyed my job at Diversophy, I also had an opportunity of watching beautiful scenery of the Mediterranean Sea at any time. Just look at these pictures from the port!
I am very grateful for my stay at Diversophy. I was able to gain a sufficient amount of professional experience and have amazing adventures with my new colleagues and friends. Furthermore, I significantly expanded my professional network, which I believe will greatly benefit me in the future. I think diversophy is a good starting point for any student that is interested in pursuing a career in the intercultural field as you will be able to have a flexible schedule and tons of opportunities for self-improvement, new learnings, and the development of both hard and soft skills.
