My Adecco Way to Work adventure has come to an end! I am filled with so much joy that it is hard to condense everything into just a few paragraphs. The best place to begin is the same as I started 30 days ago, with thank you’s. This has been a once in a lifetime [...]Continue Reading →

I can’t believe it’s my last job already! It sure has gone by fast but I have had an absolute blast. As the saying goes, save the best for last. Well, I don’t want to pick favorites…but I do love bourbon. I’m in Lexington, Kentucky working at Four Roses Distillery! It’s just over three hours [...]Continue Reading →
I’m back in the U.S.A, which oddly enough was the hardest for me to get through customs. I felt like the security guard was playing 20 question with me, but no worries, I won and have arrived in the Windy City – Chicago! Quick turn-around of just one working day and then back on a [...]Continue Reading →
“Slow food, slow life.” That is the motto that Domi from Adecco Bari shared with me upon my arrival to Italy. This definitely held true for my time here. Between the beaches and late night festivities, the people in southern Italy know how to enjoy life. Since I arrived on a Saturday, I was lucky [...]Continue Reading →
There are many ways to say hello in Switzerland because there are four main languages of the country: German, Italian, French and Romansh (though Romanish is only used is select regions).

Bonjour! It’s my last night in Paris and it truly is the city that makes you fall in love. Not just in the romantic sense, but also falling in love with life itself! The culture seems to be built on happiness. From having a full month of “holiday” each year to taking time to enjoy ones [...]Continue Reading →
Hey ya’ll, Day three in New York and it really is the city that never sleeps! And never stops fast walking for that matter, regardless of what the stoplight says. That was the first thing I noticed that was very different compared to the speed (and rule following) in Toronto. New Yorkers seem to be [...]Continue Reading →
Hey ya’ll, Day two on my Adecco Way to Work trip and I’m in Toronto! Upon arrival, it was such a liberating feeling to be in a place where I did not know anyone. I felt more mindful of my surroundings, as well as personally strengthening my ability to be self-reliant. But when it comes [...]Continue Reading →
Hey ya’ll, The countdown has begun! Six days left until I’m off to start Adecco’s Way to Work program. First stop? Canada! These past few weeks of finding out that I was a winner, to getting the paperwork in order, and learning my schedule for the next month has been surreal. I can’t thank everyone [...]Continue Reading →
