Goldbeck Welcomes Their New Intern, Patricia Belinski
My name is Patricia Belinski, I’m 31 and I am from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am here working and studying North American Business Management at Capilano University.
Have you been to other countries before coming to Canada?
I left Brazil 3 years ago to live in Dublin, Ireland. During this 3 years I had the opportunity to travel to many countries in Europe. Since I love travelling, every time I had the chance I would fly to a different country and that was the best thing about living in Europe. My favorite ones are Italy and Portugal, because of the weather and food! Besides Europe, I have lived in the US for 1 year and have visited some places in South America as well.
What is the purpose of your internship?
I have to opt a concentration in the post-graduate business diploma I am taking at Capilano University and I am going to choose Human Resources. Therefore, this internship at Goldbeck is an opportunity to learn about recruiting and the Canadian business environment. It is a good experience!
Why did you choose Canada for your internship?
I have friends who have lived here before and they all love Canada. Canada is a wonderful country with beautiful landscapes and friendly people. So, my friends and some pictures have inspired me to come to Vancouver . And the weather – less rain than Dublin! 🙂
Are there any tourist locations in Vancouver that you’re excited to visit?
I have walked around the city and, so far, I am in love with everything I saw. I am very excited to go to Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge. I am also excited to see the beautiful colors of Autumn – my favorite season.
