Giovanna is a student coming from Switzerland currently participating in a Study & Work Program for 12 months.
She came to Canada because she wanted to discover its “beautiful landscape” and “wilderness“, so the choice of Vancouver became obvious. Besides the cultural experience, she was also looking to improve her English level.
Her adventure began with an intensive period of English study at one of our school partner located in downtown Vancouver. About 6 weeks prior to her job start date, she met with a STEPWEST placement coordinator to discuss her job expectations. After reviewing her Canadian-style resume, and a couple job interview preparation seminars, she was ready for real job interviews. She did a great job during her first job interview, and was hired as a hostess/waitress at a top restaurant located in Stanley Park.
Giovanna is super happy as this position allows her to speak English with customers as well as her colleagues, and the tips are not so bad either 😉
