Career

Meet MAURICIO


"Everything is possible in L’Oréal. I started my career in Chile in 2011 and three years later I got the chance to come to Europe (for the very first time in my life) to live in Paris, learning French in record time, meeting some new friends, having fun and being responsible of huge projects for La Roche-Posay. It’s not only about a huge professional growth; it is also about being part of a new way of living, knowing a different culture which really inspires me. In this company, the limit of your self-exigence is yours."


Career

Meet DAISY


"I am just at the beginning of my experience but it is one that I have wanted to have since I joined L’Oreal in 2010! Being around creative, unique and inspirational individuals every day is what I love most about working in the L’Oreal Paris Make-Up Global Marketing team in Paris. Already I am attending advertising shoots, visiting labs to help the creation of future product developments, and seeing the full cycle of product ideas from concept to creation. I am grateful to have this opportunity to develop new skills and build on the development side of marketing after my 6 years in operational, so I can become a fully rounded marketer."
