Carlos is from Spain and is enrolled in our Professional Internship Program.
After achieving his Bachelor Degree in Economics in Madrid, he decided to come to Canada because he knows about the good and stable economic system. He wanted to register to this program that includes a guaranteed internship placement in order to gain international work experience in accounting and improve his English level.
After reviewing his Canadian-style resume and going through an interview-preparation seminar with one of our STEPWEST coordinators, an interview was scheduled with a chartered accounting company, located in Downtown Vancouver. He did well during this interview and got the internship position as an Accounting Assistant. After scheduling his trip, he arrived in Vancouver and was welcomed by our team at our office for an orientation seminar.
As part of our thorough monitoring, we went to see Carlos at his office last week (see pic above). He is very satisfied with his responsibilities and this experience. His main duties are bookkeeping, to make invoices and to deal with deposit issues. He likes everything within his tasks but the most challenging part is to take phone calls because of the language and vocabulary.
He still has one month left, but through this experience he gained a lot of professional experience and his English level has improved a lot which has allowed him to communicate better with colleagues and clients throughout his work.
This internship in Vancouver will give him a competitive edge over other applicants and help him in his future career in Accounting once he will go back to Spain.
