France and Canada signed a new Working Holiday Agreement for 2014

During the visit of French Prime Minister in Canada two weeks ago, Canada and France took the opportunity to sign a new Youth Mobility Agreement.

With the new Agreement, Canadian and French youth under the Working Holiday category will now be able to travel and work in the other country for a total period of up to 24 months (12 months before).

Participants under the co-op internship category, may benefit from an additional period of up to 12 months.

The new Youth Mobility Agreement between Canada and France will enter into force once both countries have completed their respective ratification processes. This is expected to occur in 2013.

This is a great news for participants in our 2014 Working Holiday Program. Starting next year, you can now come to Canada and work at a top resort or in one of Canada’s most dynamic city for up to two years. However this program has limited seats, and subject to a quota so make sure to register in advance for a chance to experience this beautiful country!

Facebook opening an office in Vancouver

Facebook opening an office in Vancouver

This news is making a lot of buzz today in Vancouver. Everyone in the digital scene is getting excited by the social media giant; Facebook officially announcing, that they will be opening an office in downtown Vancouver this spring. The office will be used on a temporary basis in order to recruit and train future software engineers of the company.

This is what Facebook said in the press release: “Vancouver was chosen because of its proximity to our Menlo Park, California, headquarters and existing engineering office in Seattle, Washington, and because Vancouver is an attractive city for world-class talent to live and work.”

This is another proof that Vancouver is becoming a prime destination for tech companies. We have seen over the past few years many successful start-ups such as HootSuite florishing in Vancouver.

If your dream career is to work for a start-up company, or in the digital world, or you would like to add international work experience to your resume, our Internship Program offers internships in Vancouver in more than 20 sectors including Digital Business, Information Technology and Online Marketing.

The Internship experience featured in a movie

This is definitely NOT what our typical intern’s profile looks like. But this seems to be a pretty funny movie, called “The Internship” coming up in June, featuring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, two 40-something salesmen, with very little knowledge in the digital age, trying to compete for a job at Google via an internship.

Beside the comedy, this is also a good sign on how, nowadays, internships have became extremely important to boost a career, and lead to a permanent job. And now, even Hollywood has picked on it, so what are you waiting for? 😉
