Work and Travel Experience: I am currently working in a hotel in the Caribbean thanks to the help and guidance of Scotia Personnel and I am absolutely loving it. This is the fourth job I have obtained with the help of the company and I love each more than the last. The first one I did was 3 summers ago, and it was the summer camp program over in the UK. The UK has a very work hard, play hard mentality and that is the best way I can sum up those 2 months. It was a great experience that helped me build my resume, and was a great help to me when I applied to teachers college two years ago. The other staff members at the camp were a mix of Canadian, English as well as a few from Spain, and even South Africa. I speak to a good amount of them still, and 4 of my very best friends to this day I made while working overseas in England. The next job I pursued was the summer camps in Italy, and while those few months were few different than mine time in the UK, they were equally as rewarding and genuinely fun. Italy has a very different culture than England, but I loved every second of it, and got to do so much travelling while moving around to teach English, which allowed me to explore and live in a variety of towns and cities across Italy. I literally ate my way through Italy that summer, and was also able to au pair following my <br/> time working at the English Summer Camps. My time in Italy, will in June be 2 years ago, but it still feels like it was just yesterday because I enjoyed it so much. Currently, I am living in the Caribbean working at a hotel and again, loving it. I have been here 9 months, making this the longest of any of the other three jobs, and it also happens to be my favourite. Not to say that the others weren't amazing- they were, but I just love sunshine and the sheer amount of time I have been here has made me so so happy and in love with this island and my job. In a week or so, one of the lovely girls I worked with in Italy will also be coming out here to work in a nearby hotel which is one of the best parts about Scotia <br/> Personnel, anytime you work with them there are others close by that you can meet, or in some cases, reconnect with. Undoubtedly, the best thing I ever did was call back Scotia and meet with them for an interview. I urge everyone to take the time to read through the different opportunities that they have available, and make sure you choose the one or ones best suited for you and you will undoubtedly love it. And it will help shape not only your resume, but more importantly you as a person! And you will honestly meet lots of wonderful people along the way.

Au Pair in America: In 2008 I decided to apply to be an Au Pair. I had wanted to apply since graduating high school in 2006 but my parents wanted me to pursue post secondary education first. So I did so for two years; at that point I wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go with my education, so I knew it was a perfect time to apply to the Au Pair in America program. With great help from Scotia Personnel I was able to get my forms completed and interview done before Summer. I matched with a family in Georgia, USA in just a few weeks and was set to start my journey in September 2008. <br/><br/>I could not have asked for a better experience! My host family was absolutely amazing and I ended up learning so much about myself and meeting the love of my life. <br/><br/>To this day my host family is still my second family; we keep in contact via email and still have visits whenever I'm in the area. After finishing my year; although I wanted to extend for another, I knew I wanted to pursue a field in child and youth care, so I returned home to complete the Child and Youth care program at Holland College.<br/><br/>And lastly one of the most amazing life changing experiences was of course meeting my fiancé! We will be together for 5 years this coming January and now have a 16 month old daughter together. We met while I was still in the Au Pair program, so after my year was up we decided to try long distance, and it was the best decision we ever made. We have been back and forth ever since and i'm happy to say now that we are getting married this coming January 2014! <br/><br/>I could not thank this program enough for what it has given me! A great experience which taught me so much about myself, led me to my education and my new family! I urge anyone interested in this program to check it out; it will definitely not disappoint.
