Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

Satoshi - Japan

"I'd say my contribution to the company is fairy high rate, because my boss told me to come back to them after the internship, when i get the working holiday visa. They give me a lot of acknowledgements which motivates me extraordinary. I really enjoy working with them. It seems workers are satisfied with what they're dealing with. For the rest of my internship, I'll learn new tasks as much as I can, keep up with the general speed of things, and concentrate on the tasks which I've known so that I won't make careless mistakes"

Natalie - United Kingdom

Thanks to Global choices, on behalf of my daughter Natalie. We appreciated the info kindly provided, together with the processing and research for the most suitable placement in Alberta. We had a two week holiday in Alberta and visited both establishments with our Canadian hosts. Needless to say both resorts mentioned are absolutely super! Thanks again for your effort. On behalf of Natalie. We look forward to further placement news. ~ Natalie’s father Andrew
