It’s time to make a review of the second semester of the year!
July was a month full of events! The month started with a big celebration of Canada’s day!! The city was full of Canadian flags, and the parade and the fireworks were just amazing. In July, Janin and myself, Irene started our internship( and it seem like yesterday!!) It was completely crazy but the second day of my internship all the PR team went to Seattle to celebrate the Independence Day there! In the same week we had a crazy pub and club night!Partyy!In July INTERNeX was one of the five worldwide nominees for the 2012 STM Star AWARD!This award honors organizations voted by industry leaders to be “Stars” in the categories language learning, work experience and volunteer programs! Well done!We finished the month with a a great Festival of lights with amazing fireworks at English Bay.
August was even more exciting! We started with a pub crawl instead our ordinary pub night..because August was The Month! We had the most amazing trip ever in The Rockies! I will always remember the color of that lakes, that mountains, and all the fun that we had! In August Barbara, the new placement manager started in the company. This year we had the chance to celebrate the 10th Anniversary on a great Summer Party .A lot of prizes were given away an some of our candidates enjoyed for free a session of Paintball!! But August was also the month of a lot of Goodbyes. The first one was Petra after 8 months with us, the next one was Katie, our American intern that spent her summer working with us. Summer is the perfect time to practice some outdoor activities such as the incredible fun wakeboarding!!Or visit places like the amazing Lynn Valley!!That was the last activity that Xenia, enjoyed with us because she had to come back to Germany, after a couple of months working with us. The last one of leaving us, was Lies, our Belgium pr after more than 7 months with us.
In September the weather was still so nice that we enjoyed visiting places like Whytecliff park in West Vancouver or Bowen Island. After so many goodbyes, was great to have new faces between us!Marianne our outgoing German arrived to our team!!A week after our Chinese Canadian Queenie arrived as well!There is not a better way to celebrate the new crew with a Pub and Club Night! But it was also time to say goodbye to one great colleague and friend, Janin! Simon, our PR coordinator started a new chapter with his own company, Teccrab! Good job, Simon!
It was probably the busiest but funniest three months of the year!
