Déborah, a 4th year BBA INSEEC student in Lyon, is currently doing her end-of-studies internship in Paris, with the large cosmetics group COTY. Delighted by this new experience, she gives us her first impressions:
“Last January, I joined the international headquarters of the Coty Group in Paris for 6 months, in order to complete my internship. I found this internship by applying for a job on the Fashion Jobs website. I had a phone interview with the Director of Human Resources and then an interview with the manager.
Coty is an international cosmetics group with more than 47 brands and subsidiaries in over 40 countries. The atmosphere in the headquarters is very friendly and the trainees are perfectly integrated.
As anInternational Merchandising Assistant, I manage the development of launch tools for prestigious brands such as Chloé, Bottega Veneta and Marc Jacobs. Working on several brands is very enriching and allows me to have a broader vision of the cosmetics sector. I am in contact with many people: I am the daily link between the marketing department, the creative agencies, the suppliers and our subsidiaries. This function is also very operational; I give my merchandising recommendations to the markets and I validate their implementation.
I have already learned a lot from my first day at Coty and I am looking forward to the rest of my internship.Updated 8 March 2022
