At a first glance, it does not appear obvious for a student in engineering to do an internship as a housing expert in a real estate agency. My motivation was to explore a less technical working field, an opportunity quite rare for a future engineer.
My objective was to improve my ability to work in groups and to grow personally. The tasks and people I’ve had the chance to encounter were highly diverse. Working with clients from all over the world means not to just work by the book, but necessary to adapt to every individual. This includes asking the right questions at the right time and having a sense of empathy and a certain emotional intelligence.
In some situations, I also had to employ improvisation: rescheduling visits due to the delay of a client or landlord or manage quite unfavorable situations in apartments (tenants present, difficult access, apartments not in a good or messy state). I think having developed my flexibility.
My negotiation-capabilities as an intermediate have evolved, because I can take the position of the other side. I also learned how to better manage stress. A big success in my opinion was my handling of phone calls, regarding my timidity in the beginning and my improved sovereignty at the end of my internship.
The biggest surprise in my internship was the good perception of my work by the clients and the good atmosphere in the office. At Parisrental a real culture of working together in a team can be found.
The real estate market is multidisciplinary why I chose to write my master thesis in this domain.
Finally, I want to thank the entire team for the warm welcome. I want to thank Anne and Pascale in particular, especially for their patience and their advice.

Clara, Avans University of Applied Sciences
During my internship at ParisRental I was very lucky to become a part of a very motivated and welcoming team. In the beginning, I was a little afraid of all the tasks. Even taking a phone call in French seemed to be a huge step for me. However, with the support of my colleagues I managed to overcome these fears and developed my skills a lot. They gave me the opportunity to work independently with clients from all over the world and to discover Paris far from all the tourists.
Finally, I enjoyed my six months at the agency a lot and thus, strongly recommend an internship at ParisRental.
Brittany, INSEEC Paris
The internship at ParisRental / De Circourt Associates is by far the best internship in Paris. Investment, Responsibility, Learning, Challenge, are all words to describe my experience. From day one, I was immediately accepted into a welcoming team who consistently provided advice, training, and encouragement to ensure success. During my time at ParisRental, I had the opportunity to work on both the Marketing team as well as a commercial agent. Both were extremely complimentary to what I had studied in my MBA coursework.
My French improved, my communication skills improved, my ability to take a task to completion became more streamlined. I now feel better equipped to face the challenges of a fast-paced work environment.
Valerie, Université de Lorraine
The internship as a Client Relations Consultant at ParisRental offered me stimulating work experience that challenged me and contributed to my professional and personal development as a recent graduate. While being well looked after and supported by a great team, I have been encouraged to take my own initiative during the entire six-month period, which enabled me to gain maturity, independence, and acquire important sales skills.
I recommend this internship to any young student seeking valuable work experience and who is interested in tackling challenges independently and assuming responsibilities in a dynamic environment in one of the most exciting cities in Europe.

Working at ParisRental / De Circourt Associates was a life-enhancing experience. From the first day on I was surrounded by an incredibly kind and supportive team. The great thing about this company is the distinct sense of teamwork of its employees. Instead of competition between the sales representatives, one will find an outstanding way of communication and collaboration between the different members of the company.
I had the chance to be working in both the administrative and sales departments. Therefore I learned a lot about the whole working procedures of the company. I appreciate the fact that important duties were committed to me and I was able to work independently and autonomously. The responsibilities that were confided to me boosted my professional self confidence.
Working in an international team with clients coming from all over the world made me improve my language skills as well as my knowledge about intercultural communication. I acquired skills in negotiation, client relations and other important professional competencies which will be useful for my future career.
Sophia, Westsächsische Hochschule of Zwickau, Languages and Business Administration
I had an internship as an administrative and commercial assistant for six months at ParisRental / De Circourt Associates. For me it was very exciting to be involved from the first day in the daily work process. Therefore, I had the chance to become accustomed to the tasks and to develop myself. My tasks included working on the database of apartments and landlords. Furthermore, I made the electricity and gas contracts for our clients and I worked on the contracts between the agency and the landlords.
It was very interesting for me to stay directly in contact with our clients and landlords. With the help of the very professional team, I could handle all those new tasks. In a weekly meeting all new business affairs were discussed. This meeting also helped a lot to create a very good team atmosphere.
I appreciated the constructive work environment in a professional, international, and multicultural atmosphere. For me it was an amazing experience to have had the chance to work at ParisRental.

I got to meet many great people, in the form of both individual clients and global businesses, and learned the inner workings of the city of Paris itself. Finally, I made great friends with my colleagues.

Working at ParisRental / De Circourt Associates was a wonderful experience, more than I could ever have wished for. From the moment I joined the company I was welcomed by all staff members and as my time progressed, I really became part of the team. Throughout my work placement I gained valuable skills and competencies which can be used not only in the real estate field, but which are transferable to many different business areas.
What was essential in ParisRental's work environment was the ability to function effectively in a team, which meant constant communication and interaction to reach our monthly business goals. Providing excellent customer service to both tenants and owners was based on the capability of our team to work closely with one another, and to be open to one another's help and suggestions.
I also greatly appreciated the opportunity the company gave me to work on my own personal projects and clients. I felt a great sense of autonomy and responsibility throughout the entire work placement while feeling reassured that I had the guidance and support of the team behind me. I was constantly exposed to and had the opportunity to work with clients from high-profile businesses from all over the world. This made my placement both a unique and enriching experience, being challenged on a daily basis yet feeling great personal satisfaction when goals and targets were achieved.
My time at ParisRental proved to be an experience beyond my expectations and the knowledge and skills which I gained will certainly remain with me and benefit me in whichever future career path I may choose.
