As part of the Stepwest monitoring process, we get monthly feedback from our participants that we have placed at different companies around Canada. We want to know how they are doing, and if they think that they are achieving their career related goals. We hear some great stories every month and some of them are definitely worth sharing! So, for this reason, we would like to introduce Stepwest Stories! Every month, we’ll be highlighting a story from one of our participants! We invite you now to check out the first edition of Stepwest Stories featuring Madeleine at her host company 4 months after she began her marketing internship in Canada.

After graduating in Tourism and Event Management in Germany, Madeleine wanted to get some international experience in Canada. During many months she tried to get an international internship by herself, approaching about 70 companies, but nothing worked out, so she decided to contact Stepwest to help her find a marketing internship in Vancouver.

Madeleine registered in the Stepwest Student Internship Program and after participating in her first internship interview, she got a position! She did her marketing internship at a start-up IT services company located in historic Gastown, an area known as the epicentre of design and culture in Vancouver, and home to many growing start-up companies. The office is on the third floor of an old warehouse, with all glass conference rooms and the most amazing views of North Vancouver. During her internship in Canada, she worked on engaging projects that had great importance to the brand itself. She also emphasized that the company had a helpful and supportive environment, where she felt provided with detailed guidance every step of the way. Even though she was miles away from her family and friends, Madeleine’s colleagues made sure she felt at home.

Everyday, Madeleine brought her fun-loving, can-do attitude with her to the office, and was front and centre with ideas on how to help the company accomplish its goals. We are sure that now she is going back home and bringing that same passion, dedication and commitment with her, which, together with this great experience on her resume, will surely help her reach great new heights in her career. We wish you the very best Madeleine!!
