At MyFrenchLife, interns don’t make coffee: we make the coffee for them.
Non, we’re not kidding. We treat our team members as equals.
We love nothing more than watching them grow, and seeing them achieve things they never imagined they would.
Most of all, we want them to understand the meaning of a well-worn cliché: that the best kind of work is the sort that doesn’t feel like work at all.
From day one, MyFrenchLife has been possible because of the brilliant people who have been part of the team.
If you’re passionate about the online world, about publishing, media, editing, writing, marketing, communications or the ins and outs of entrepreneurship, then a role with us could be the perfect way to kickstart, reinvent or develop your career.

A raging Francophile currently studying language, linguistics and journalism at Monash Uni, Julia Greenhalf loves delving into the world of all things French – so long as there’s a decent cup of coffee alongside it!
