Calling All Francophiles: A Spring Editorial Internship with HiP Paris

HiP Paris Blog, Editorial Internship

Ever since my first visit to the City of Light as a child, I knew that I eventually wanted to live there, and my family knew it too, often retelling stories of me leap-frogging over the iconic street posts and disappearing down les petites rues.

Skip forward to October 2015, after spending another two months travelling around Europe, I returned to my hometown, Perth (the most isolated capital city in the world). I always finish my trips in Paris because, well, it’s Paris! A couple of weeks later, back into the routine of my everyday life, the inevitable longing to return kicked in, and so without much planning, I booked a one-way flight and landed at Charles de Gaulle three months later.

I have since returned to Australia and can’t say that my year in Paris was easy. Between studying to improve my French so I felt confident enough to apply for jobs, moving apartments four times, and battling to immerse myself in a foreign social environment that I had only ever really dipped a toe in, I often felt completely overwhelmed. On the flip side, I had an excitement and sense of energy that only comes from living in a cultural mecca like Paris, where every day provides the opportunity to experience and create something new. Plus, not to mention endless supplies of croissants, stinky cheeses on every corner, and super-cheap French wine!

So, when the opportunity arose to work with HiP Paris as the Editorial Assistant, I knew that it would be a catalyst for an even more authentic vie parisienne and jumped at it. Beyond the tasks associated with the inner workings of running a successful blog – sourcing photography, uploading content to the site, and researching related stories – the experience encouraged me to observe deeper, question more, and create more valuable relationships.

As a result, I have been able to share with you some of my own adventures and insights into what adds to the unique cultural fabric that is Paris. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Erica, Editorial Director and Owner of Haven In, and Erin, our HiP Editor, who have both been so encouraging, and enabled me to develop new skills, and branch out of my comfort zone.

Yet all good things must come to an end, and even though I’m sure this won’t be the last you hear from me, it is time to pass this incredible opportunity to the next Paris enthusiast, who will hopefully find it equally as rewarding and exciting.

  • I felt a kindred spirit as I read this post. Like you, I fell in love with Paris as a young man, spent as much time as possible there and still dream of someday living there for an extended time. Somehow, 40 years of that thing called LIFE got in the way, and finally at age 63 I have relaunched my dream, or a modified version of it, at least.
    I now spend 3 to 5 weeks a year in the City of Light. The rest of my time is spent writing content, learning how to manage a Paris website, and conducting small custom tours for like-minded souls.
    Best of luck to you Tristan – I can assure you that, as Hemingway observed, “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
