We love interns. They all add personality and dynamics to the office. And milk to your cup of coffee, if you want. No, seriously: our interns gain the experience of a lifetime at choco. Take Laura Pelgrims, Rani Van de Velde and Jasper Ooms, for example. They have only just started, but they already feel like part of the furniture. Interested in an internship too?

"Looking for an internship you will not easily forget? Choco’s the place to be! Meanwhile I’ve been working at C&A’s communication department for almost 4 years. I often think back of my internship and subsequent summer job in this super fun agency. Not in the least because of the ‘tricks of the trade’I learnt, but also because it’s such a nice gang to work with.”
Studies: Bachelor Communication Management
"The first time I heard about choco, was during my marketing studies when Krist Pauwels gave a lecture on choco’s organisation, vision and goals. His presentation made a lasting impression. Two years later, during my master, I had to find a trainee post and the choice was easily made. Choco is unique in the way they deal with colleagues, clients and also with it’s interns. I was not only guided by my coach, but felt supported by the entire team. I gained a lot of new insights on communication, advertising, prospecting and account management. Besides, the fun atmosphere probably is their strongest point. Thanks, dear choco’s, for the wonderful experience!"
Studies: Bachelor Marketing & Master Business Communication
“ I did my internship at choco in the spring of 2012, as a part of my studies at the former Plantijn Hogeschool. After that, I returned twice for a summer job. In other words: choco offered me lots of opportunities and I was able to learn so much! The account managers really opened my eyes when it comes to project management and communication with clients. Thanks a lot ladies!
Current job: project manager - copywriter at online marketing agency Queromedia
"In February and March 2015 I was a trainee at choco: 8 weeks of campaign management. After a long time of studying, it was my first step into the professional world. It was a very educational, and, above all, a very fun time. My tasks were varied: joining meetings with clients, making telephone calls, taking part in brainstorms, doing research for coachings, writing meeting reports, preparing creative briefings, attending a lecture at the Antwerp Management School, talks with suppliers, helping out with the choco eFlash,…And all this together with a team of sweet and enthusiastic choco-colleagues. I had a great and successful internship!"
"For 4 months I worked at choco as a copywriter. Still a bit wet behind the ears, but hey, no problem! Press releases, newsletter, web copy, radio commercials,… I helped writing them. My mentor was tough, but fair and he taught me how to really enjoy your job. He managed to inspired me and to do better each day. Choco is a close-knit team, willing to offer you chances and give you a taste of the real work. And it sure tasted good!"
Current job: Segment marketeer at Wolters Kluwer
"During my internship at choco I was able to get a taste of advertising and it made me long for more! A joyful and driven team (slightly eccentric), positive vibes and the fact that they work according to 8 core values is what remains with me most. I contributed to a number of nice campaigns, and it was cool to see the actual result in magazines of on TV."
