Internship picture of the day : Cafe interview

I wouldn't really call a paid placement at a cafe an 'internship' - but for some reason, a lot of our students do.  We call it a 'Casual Work Placement'.    Casual work placements - not surprisingly - are offered as part of our Casual  Work Experience Program.  This program puts students from hospitality programs, or hospitality + ESL programs, into paid positions at cafes, restaurants, hotels and shops around Vancouver and out at resorts.

The picture above is of a student of ours from Taiwan named Jenson.  Here Jenson is interviewing at a cafe.    If hired he would be working as a server/cashier.  It'll give him ample opportunity to practice both his English and his hospitality skills.
