Halloween office party
The interns had their own Halloween office party at their respective jobs.
Halloween is just around the corner, Wednesday 31 October 2018. Halloween is a big tradition in the U.S. and many people are dressing up. Sure, you're celebrating a little Halloween in Scandinavia, but not near to how the celebration is in the U.S. Here you spend time and money to get the best costume, some even make their own costumes to make it unique. If you go out without a costume during the Halloween days, you will probably be alone about it. We hade a little Halloween party this weekend with some friends as you can see on the pictures. It is also common to visit a pumpkin patch here in the U.S. A pumpkin patch is a farm that have a large amount of pumpkins in the month of October. People are going here to select their pumpkins for carving, a tradition in the U.S. Many companies are celebrating Halloween at their office and on Friday you will be able to see how our interns Halloween party looked like.

The North-West Passage visited the interns Amanda and Mathilda at Neurogym. We helped them with the J-1 Visa and their internship placement. Their internship is located in the mountains of Rancho Santa Fe and we hade a little interview with both of them.
Internships are a fantastic way to visit another country while also building an impressive resume. An internship in the U.S. not only provides invaluable life experiences, but also the type of unique insight and understanding of a culture that can only be gained through immersion.
We met with Isabella and Jon and had a little chat with them. Isabella is the new intern to Homecoin.com and Jon is her supervisor. Read about the interview below.
