Hello from Spain

I am so happy that you kept talking to me about Spain!  I am having the time of my life, I have made amazing friends and the weather is a lot warmer now and have been hitting the beaches with friends, as well as with the kids while I'm working!  The island of Mallorca is beautiful, and this weekend going to a waterfall with my new friends!

I have attached some photos of my trip and some with the family, I will keep in touch.

Thank you

Jennifer

  3. Thank-you everyone for all your comments! It is wonderful to receive such positive feedback on our various au pair and camp programs. Our summer camps for 2013 are unfortunately filled however we are now actively recruiting for summer 2014 camp positions. Our camp positions fill very quickly(usually by the fall for the following summer)! Please see our website http://scotia-personnel-ltd.com for further details.

  4. I did a kid's summer camp as a camp leader in the UK through Scotia Personnel and had a summer of a lifetime! This was my first summer away from home but I met young people from all over the world including people from Australia, New Zealand and Europe. The team from Scotia Personnel were great and just wanted to thank them again!

  7. I was reading thru this awesome blog and just wanted to write a comment about my experience as an au pair. I have been an au pair in America through Scotia Personnel. I’ve had such a wonderful time! My host family was great to me! Working with children and travelling are my two most favourite things. I’ve travelled throughout the US with the family. As well, I’ve met other au pairs through the program from all over the world. Now I have free room and board wherever I travel and great friends as well :). I’ve had such a wonderful time!

  9. So inspiring reading about people's experience. I would like to share my story. I had the pleasure of working with Scotia personnel through my experience as an au pair one year in the states and following with six months in China. I've always dreamed about traveling and experience another culture but never knew how or where to start. I heard from college school mates and family and friends about this angency so naturally this was the way to go. And I can't tell you enough how an amazing feeling it is to put ideas and dreams into reality.

    The Scotia personnel staff is very friendly, patient and incouraging when it comes to the process of getting ready to work and experience abroad. Any questions I had they reassured me and helped me through my process so I was one step closer to being abroad. The best thing was they share the excitement of your adventures and incourages to keep pursing them. I was blessed with two amazing host families and friendships with people despite having to part ways to our own countries once we where done, When the contract ends, we knew we would be life long friends despite the distance and time, cause sharing these kinds of experiences a hard to forget,

    I highly recommend jumping in and starting the processes right away, they will help you through the applications, interviews, questions and of provided reassurance when you feel uncertainty when leaving your comfort space (your country and home).

    I am still processing my Life changing experiences in just a short time period and i think I will be reflecting for the rest of my life , if it wasn't for this well established angency I may not have gotten to do all the experiences I got to do and for that I am very grateful.

  10. Reflecting on this past year, I am grateful to Scotia Personal because they gave me the nudge and the confidence to finally fulfill my dream of living in a new country.
    Through the working abroad program I became a receptionist working and travelling on my off days. My coworkers became more like family and beyond that I have made life long friends through my travels. In just over a year I have already visited Italy France Germany Iceland. Each place I've visited has made me fall more in love with traveling. scotia personnel has opened opportunities for me and let me experience all that I have in such a short time.

  11. Working as an English tutor in Italy was an experience I won't ever forget. I would like to thank Scotia Personnel for the opportunity. Having the opportunity to live in Italy for three months was amazing. My host family was great, they were very accommodating, generous and welcoming, and the kids I looked after and tutored became like younger siblings to me, and made me feel like part of the family. They even invited me to stay with them again next year.
    When not working, I had time off on the weekends, where I would travel to amazing places around northern Italy, or hang out with my host family, where we would go on their boat around Lake Como, where we would swim, wakeboard, and occasionally watch fireworks. I also got to eat so many delicious foods as well as have ice cream or gelato almost every day, something I don't get to do in Canada.
    My experience working in Italy gave me the confidence to solo travel and I was able to meet new and interesting people, as well as getting to experience a different culture, cuisine, and environment that I hadn't before. I would definitely recommend this wonderful opportunity and experience. Overall my time in Italy, and working as a tutor was great, and I would love to get the opportunity to go back again.
