Meet Our Past Canadian Interns

Mylene Tu, 2021 Canadian CEO for One Month

“Through the mentorship calls with Janelle, and being able to work on my own projects with impact, it was a one-of-a-kind experience I’ll never forget.”

Danny Elnatour, 2020 Canadian CEO for One Month and Global Top 5 Finalist

“The authenticity, the trust, the enthusiasm, and the supported mentorship from everyone at The Adecco Group was a huge testament to this amazing program.”

Olivia Poulin, 2018 Canadian CEO for One Month and Global Top 5 Finalist

“I didn’t know if I would even make through the Canadian selection round, never mind having the opportunity to head to boot camp and represent Canada on a global stage. If it can be me, why can’t it be you?”

Alana Couvrette, 2017 Canadian CEO for One Month

“If you’re looking to be challenged, if you want to try something new and daunting, if you want to learn new skills and put others to the test, then why not apply?”
