Youssef Maguid

3-month internship in Public Relations at Ubisoft NCSA HQ


What is your background?

My background has very little to do with PR. I studied architectural history as an undergraduate before getting my Masters in Architecture. I worked as an architectural intern, a museum tour guide, and personal trainer before joining Ubisoft.

What is the most exciting project you’ve worked on?

Helping plan our E3 and attending the show for the first time was a dream come true for me!

What did you learn during your internship?

I learnt how to properly communicate and get ahead of the problem or question before it arises.

Why would you recommend this internship at Ubisoft to other students?

My favorite part about working here has been the people, by far. Each and every one of my co-workers was fun, caring, passionate, and dedicated to what they did. They were the reason I looked forward to coming into work every day.

In your opinion, which qualities are required to succeed during an internship at Ubisoft?

Strong writing and general communication skills. It’s important to be able to multitask and help out other team members on the fly.
