Internships and professional integration

From the start of the training, 42 challenges its students with the reality of the work environment.

The choice of professionalization


Internships are available in the second part of the curriculum. There are no mandatory starting periods and you can take them full-time or part-time. Rather than an internship and according to the 42 Campus, you can validate an apprenticeship, a professional contract, or a classic job in IT.






Interships, apprenticeship, jobs

42’s close ties with the digital ecosystem

Throughout the curriculum, several events allow students to meet with professionals, whether they want to present a new technology, create a network or seek a job or internship opportunity. More than exposing students to the world of work, it’s about understanding the IT needs of today’s companies to be able to integrate into the market in the best possible way. The opportunity to build and sustain your professional network is a noteworthy asset when seeking a sustainable job.

Aaron Swartz (1986-2013)

It is still difficult today to put a label on Aaron Swartz. An innovator, he joined the working group in charge of the specifications of the RSS feed at age 14. As an open source advocate, he contributed to the creation of the Creative Commons license – an alternative to traditional copyright license – at the age of 15. As an entrepreneur, he joined the Y Combinator summer program in 2005 and dropped his studies in Stanford to focus on his own project… which eventually gave birth to Reddit. A hacktivist, too, he became the target of the American Department of Justice after downloading most of the 5 million paid scientific articles available on the JSTOR site. Prosecuted for more than two years despite benefiting from a strong defense, he commited suicide in 2013.

“One’s legacy depends on one’s impact and what better way to measure impact than by the effect of what you’ve done. But this is measuring against the wrong baseline. The real question is not what effect your work had, but what things would be like had you never done it.”- Aaron Swartz.
