In just a couple of short days, we will be saying goodbye to one-third of the Public Relations team – Marianne.
I am going to be really sad as she sits beside me and feeds me chocolate! (Ha, you might think that I am joking, but I am not.) Of course, I will miss everything else about her like the way she inspires me to be a more outgoing and spontaneous person.
The PR team’s job at INTERNeX is to plan events for the candidates and take care of the social media channels. In planning events, our goal is to basically make sure our candidates have the best possible time while they complete their internship or other jobs during their stay in Vancouver.
The experience of going abroad and gaining international experience is so much more than just working and completing the report that your school requires. It is about the people you meet and the things you do outside of work that makes your time away from home memorable and unique.
This is why we have so many events going on every week, such as the weekly pub nights where we try to find new pubs to try out every week, weekly activities such as our paintball event on December 9th and our bigger trips such as our Seattle trip on December 16th. We want you to have a great time and have a great time ourselves as well!
Coming to these events is the best way to meet new people and form new friendships because we are all in the same situation which is being new to this foreign country. One of the candidates, who is also leaving soon, was reflecting upon his experience in Vancouver the other day. He said that one of the best things about being part of INTERNeX was that it was easy to meet people, whom he wouldn’t have otherwise, through attending our events regularly. He will definitely be one of the people I miss the most and now I will have a place to stay when I travel in Germany!
So, I encourage all of you to come out and join us for all the exciting stuff we have planned for you in December and the upcoming months! Since we plan these events specifically for you, please do not hesitate to tell us what you want to do and where you want to go and we will make it happen! Don’t worry we are not scary, I swear.
