My name is Antoine ABOULKHEIR. I am a French business school student and I am currently doing my end of studies internship at Cartier in Paris.
I had the chance to be an intern at O’Callaghan collection between August 2017 and February 2018 as part of the marketing team alongside Stephanie Higgins. I was a digital marketing intern. I was really looking forward for this experience as it was my first internship.
I had a warm welcome by all the people in the office and felt like I was a part of the company. I was introduced to everyone and they were all nice to me and seemed really happy to get to know me.
I was interested by the hotel and luxury industry and I wanted to have a first-hand experience in that field to see how it works from the inside. I am currently studying in a business school with a specialisation in marketing and luxury marketing, Stephanie is an alumni of my school that’s how I found this internship.
I had a really good time during this internship, I learned a lot about the industry but also thanks to Stephanie I had the opportunity to see how marketing can be used in this kind of business. I felt I quickly integrated as I had more and more things to do while I was getting more independent. Stephanie and Chloé were really kind to me, always available if I had problems or questions, I did appreciate the feeling I had that they trusted me.
Finally, I really loved my internship there also because I really liked the city, Dublin and its atmosphere are awesome, and all the people I met were really nice and friendly.
I want to thank O’Callaghan collection for my internship and for everything I learned and especially Stephanie and Chloé as the three of us were a small but efficient marketing team and I am happy to hear that the team has grown bigger since I left.
