GOOTB applications summer 2015


If you’re a high-school student or 2015 graduate, you’re eligible to work for Winnipeg’s premier advertising firm — McKim — for the summer of 2015 in our second annual Get Out Of The Basement project. You can be part of a dynamic team of your peers, helping to spread the word about the fun attractions, festivals, activities and events in and around Winnipeg.

We’re looking for teenaged boys and girls with communication, social media and digital media interests — everything from being in front of the camera to behind the keyboard. If you’re into video, video games, social media, theatre or music, then GOOTB is one of the best places to learn and explore work options that relate your interests and talents. By the end of the summer, you’ll have had a powerful paid work experience, attended many fun events and have a great career experience to add to your resume.

We are planning on starting GOOTB on Thurs. July 2 and ending the program on Fri. August 28. The job will be Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Must be able to work after hours and on occasional weekends.

The application deadline is now closed. Thanks to all who applied! All applicants will be contacted, and those who are short-listed will be invited for interviews. Good luck!


Fort Whyte Bison Safari

For many, including myself, you may consider Fort Whyte Alive more of a thing you go to on Elementary school field trips rather than an interesting place to visit. However, we enjoyed the Bison Safari which we got to go on twice, once with the general public, and then we got to go on again with the Shaw TV crew.  The second time, the Guide left the gate that cuts off the field into two halves open, and the Bison noticed this. They then stampeded to the other side of the field that was plentiful with grass and other plants to eat.

Aviation Museum

The exhibits were cool and our tour guide (a pretty cool older man) took us into one of the big planes. My GOOTB compatriots enjoyed the big plane, and Ben even got to go onto a small training plane. He commented on how he could use the “strobe lights” in the plane to have a 4 person rave.

Benja Flies an Airplane


Ai-Kon was a lot of play, and not much work. Our work was done quickly, and we just explored and enjoyed the con for most of the day. It was far and away the best event that the GOOTB (pronounced Goot-Buh) went to.
