Alexia Cornet

About me

Motivated and serious, I know how to adjust to different work environments. My senses of organisation and diplomacy allow me to be at ease alone or in a team, as well as dealing with clients, colleagues or intermediaries. A two-month internship in Ireland’s largest independent bookstore also helped me develop my skills in a foreign professional context, and allowed me to make use of my English studies.​ In order to complete my Master's Degree, I spent nine months with the Centre Européen de Promotion de l'Histoire (European center for the promotion of History), organising the festival Les Rendez-vous de l'histoire in Blois, which was a complete and instructive experience.
