“The French will support you in every possible way when it comes to securing a job in the industry. I completed my industry placement days with a beautiful team of girls, better known as Bobbie Charles. I was lucky enough to obtain a position with them 4 weeks before I graduated. Your first job in the industry is a very important one! This is where you can finally apply all of your new skills and understanding out in the real world.”
