Delphine is from France and is enrolled in our Professional Internship Program.

After finishing her Master Degree in Intelligence Marketing in Paris, she decided to come to Canada because she already knew the French part and wanted to discover the other side, and in particular, Vancouver because of its amazing scenery with beaches, mountains and lakes. She wanted to register to this program that includes a guaranteed internship placement in order to gain international work experience in Marketing and practice her English.

After review her Canadian-style resume and going through an interview-preparation seminar with one of our STEPWEST coordinators, an interview was scheduled with an E-Commerce startup company, located in Richmond, close to Vancouver. She did well during this interview and got the internship position as a Marketing Coordinator. After preparing her trip, she arrived in Vancouver and was welcomed by our team at our office for an orientation seminar.

As part of our monitoring, we went to see Delphine two weeks ago at her office (see pic above).  She is really happy with her duties and her experience. Her main responsibilities include increasing the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of the website and promoting the products and work on the website. The fact that she has a lot of different tasks in her job, she is constantly learning new things. The reason she loves her internship so much is due to the fact that she has the ability to leave her own mark and bring new ideas to the company, which they take onboard. The hardest part of her role is finding solutions for new ways of communication.

She still has few months before the end of her internship, but she has definitely gained professional experience, her English level has improved immensely and she is always learning new things.

This internship in Vancouver will give her a competitive edge over other applicants for sure and help her in her future career in Digital Marketing once she returns to France.

Vancouver Marketing Internship Testimonial: Umut from Turkey

Umut is a recent Business Management graduate from Turkey. He contacted us 6 months ago, because in addition to studying at an English School in Vancouver, he felt that he needed to add international experience to his resume, as this would be an asset for him when going back to Turkey and hunting for a job in Marketing. After meeting with a STEPWEST placement expert, and successfully passing our program requirements, he was accepted within our Professional Internship program. He did an internship in a start up company based in Vancouver, he was in charge of their social media campaign (Facebook, twitter), but also prospecting and contacting potential high end customers.

Besides filling a monthly report during his internship – which is a part of the constant monitoring of our students – Umut came to our office before going back to Turkey to pick up his certificate and give us a testimonial. Here are some of the highlights:

“My goal was to gain experience about marketing and I recommend my host company because I was personally involved to the marketing so i have learn a lot about marketing and especially online marketing. The future students can learn a lot from this company just like me”.

“I recommend STEPWEST because they helped me a lot, giving me some suggestions for my future career. This placement agency is really professional.”
