Pictures of the day: CDP accounting internship interview
We all have iPhones, but we don't all have iPhone 4's. This picture was taken with an iPhone 3, and my god is it ever a lame camera.
That picture's from this morning and it's really bright today, scattered sun and all that. Based on that photo though, you'd think we were in the middle of an eclipse.
Right, the student - that is Thiago. He's there at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver a few minutes before his interview. Here's his interview:
Thiago is registered in our CDP program. That's our stipend-paid professional internship program. It's not open to the general public, it's exclusive to students from a total of 5 schools in Canada, 3 in Vancouver, 1 in Toronto, and 1 in Montreal. The program sees professionals from overseas placed in internships in their field of studies and work. They intern for 6 months and receive a stipend, or living allowance, to cover all their basics costs of life here in the city. More than 50% of CDP interns are hired by their host companies at the end of their internships - so it's a very exciting program.
Thiago is an accountant, and in the picture he's interviewing with a financial services firm for an AR position. If accepted as an intern, he'd assist with general office administration, data entry, accounts receivable and accounts payable.
