Does anyone have any experience of finding a summer job/internship in France and/or Spain that does not involve teaching or au-pairing?

I'm a 2nd year French and (ab-initio) Spanish student and will be spending my 3rd year abroad in Spain as part of an Erasmus university placement. In order to gain some work experience, prepare my Spanish and keep up my French (I did a pre-uni gap year teaching in France), I'd like to find a job/internship in France and Spain from June-August. I've already done quite a lot of placements abroad au-pairing and teaching, so would prefer to do something a bit different, but am a bit overwhelmed by all of the options online!

    On my year abroad in France I interned for a company called Madame Vacances, that runs self-catered holiday residences and hotels across France.

    I worked both at their head office in Chambery, in the HR department, and as a receptionist in one of their hotels in the Alps.

    If you're interested in working in leisure and tourism, you can get in touch with them by emailing your CV and any queries to [email protected] !

    Otherwise, try looking at the website , they have lots of student job offers on there across France :D good luck!
