What is our culture like?

Ginelle Appau, former GME/Vertic trainee, was hired by Vertic after her traineeship and spent a year working in their Copenhagen office before returning to NYC. In her words she explains why GME works so well...

"The GME experience so far has been nothing less than amazing. When applying for the program, I was keenly aware that we live in an increasingly global marketplace, in which many employers are looking for candidates with international experience.

Besides hopefully making me more attractive to prospective employees, working overseas has allowed me to broaden my knowledge, intercultural skills, and has challenged me to perform well in an unfamiliar environment. I feel very fortunate to have a placement that matches my career goals and personal interests so well.

Gaining work experience in a city renowned for producing fantastic marketing campaigns will hopefully give me a greater advantage when seeking roles in the future. Working abroad has also allowed me to build my network through attending social and professional events. If I could give one piece of advice to future GME trainees, I'd tell them to take advantage of every opportunity to meet new people and go to as many events as they can, both social and career-related, and they can't go wrong."
