The exclamation mark is because we're expanding ahead of schedule - and I'm excited about that. VancouverInternships.ca is soon to become WorkandTravel.ca. We're changing the name because we're becoming a national company. We've secured several good contracts with schools on the other side of the country, and together with a recent investment, it means we will be opening east of the Rockies in July.
Everything we've done with this company is months ahead of schedule. I'm endlessly grateful for the trust schools have put in us, and the good faith students have shown so far. We've done more than 2 dozen internship placements in our short existence, and nearly as many teacher placements.
On the books right now we've got more than 60 files. This week alone, we have the following interviews:
- Casual Work Experience (1 interview - retail)
- Paid Internship (5 network administration, 2 telecom)
- Unpaid Internship (3 hotels, 1 new media, 1 marketing)
We're really at the point of some explosive growth. We're opening two new offices, we're hiring staff, we're placing interns, we're adding on new clients nearly every week. And in this economy . . .
I'll post some more when we get the new logo . . .
