Laurie Grenier

Marketing Assistant in work-study at Loubsol

<p>Laurie, a <a href="/en/work-study-programmes">work-study</a> student at Loubsol as part of her course at EM Normandie, presents her missions and the advantages of doing work-study during her studies.</p>

<p>Benoît Nussbaum, director, presents his company and its products.</p>

<p>Carole Dong, Laurie's apprenticeship tutor, explains the day-to-day organisation of her work as well as the follow-up done with the school during the work-study contract.&nbsp;</p>

<h2>Can you introduce us to the Loubsol company?</h2>

<p>Benoît Nussbaum: It is a brand that was created in 1948 in the Jura. We work on several main markets.</p>

<p>On the one hand, we have sports distribution. The products that constitute our core business are sunglasses. Several years ago we diversified into ski goggles.</p>

<p>Another part of our business is pharmacy on the one hand and parapharmacy on the other.&nbsp;</p>

<h2>What are your tasks as a trainee at Loubsol?</h2>

<p>Laurie: My tasks are quite varied. They range from internal communication to events, via marketing and digital communication. I also deal with order forms and the website.</p>

<h2>What does Laurie bring to the job?</h2>

<p>Carole Dong: Laurie provides us with daily support. In concrete terms, she has taken on digital missions that she alone is responsible for.</p>

<p>As a tutor, my objective is to make her more and more autonomous. At the beginning of her contract, we had very regular meetings to set the framework for the projects. Today, I try to give her more autonomy in managing these projects.</p>

<h2>What skills did you acquire during your work-study programme?</h2>

<p>Laurie: During my work-study programme, I developed several soft skills, such as learning to work in a hurry and to adapt to daily life.</p>

<p>The fact that I was working for a "real" brand with concrete needs led me to become more pragmatic.</p>

<h2>What follow-up is provided by the School?</h2>

<p>Carole Dong: As a tutor, I had a meeting with one of the School's referents who came to the school to assess our feelings, to see how the company worked and the premises.</p>

<p>Laurie and I also had the opportunity to express our feelings individually. It was important to have this contact with the School.</p>

<h2>What are the advantages of a work-study programme for a student?</h2>

<p>Laurie: The advantages of a work-study programme lie mainly in the acquisition of professional experience. It will obviously add experience to my CV.</p>

<p>It also allows me to put into practice what I have learned during my courses. The reverse is also true. In my courses I find practical cases that I have experienced in the company. This allows me to understand them better and to put the theory into practice.</p>
