Destination Community Initiative


Kim Pham - Work Experience Student from Charles Tupper Secondary School



Charles Tupper Community Outreach Initiative

Kingsway Honda Vancouver has partnered with Charles Tupper Secondary School located in East Vancouver to give Grade 11 and 12 students. This provides students the opportunity to build their resume by offering career prep and/or work experience placements. Kingsway Honda Vancouver believes in investing in the future by investing in upcoming generations.

Kim Pham is a 17 year old grade 11 student exploring her academic interests in business. She aspires to study at the Sauder School of Business at UBC with a focus in marketing. Kim worked hard and completed 40 hours of work experience at Kingsway Honda and wanted to share her positive experience.

Q: What did you learn from this experience?

K: Prior to starting the work experience placement at Kingsway Honda Vancouver, I didn't have a clear picture of what a marketing department does. This experience has given me further insight into marketing and how important marketing is for a company especially through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Q: What are three things you enjoyed doing during your work experience?

K: There were many things I enjoyed during my time with Kingsway Honda Vancouver. My top three were:

- Working in a professional environment and meeting new people of various age groups

- Completing four Customer Vehicle Review folders (Honda Civic, Mazda Mazda3, Hyundai Sonata & Toyota Corolla) that Product Advisors will be using as a selling tool.

- Seeing the day-to-day operations of how a Marketing department works and understanding how marketing affects a busines.

Kingsway Honda Vancouver and Destination Auto Group recognize the importance of investing in younger generations. Our hope with this community outreach initiative with Charles Tupper Secondary School is to strengthen relationships within the community and give upcoming generations the opportunity to build their resume and gain real-life work experience.
