PR-team Adventures

In the INTERNeX office we like to do pranks when one of us goes away for a while or just on a random day for fun. As you all know it was Mothers Day a week ago and it was time for another prank. This was not really a prank, more a funny present, but it was still amazing!

I was the first to start at INTERNeX from the current PR-team. As I had 2 more months experience than the others when they started I became the team leader. I already knew a lot about how the PR-department works at INTERNeX and I could explain every aspect to the new girls. Because I was the team leader, our supervisor, Simon, started to call me ‘boss’. I didn’t like to be called the boss as that sounded like I was the one deciding everything, so then the nickname ‘mommy’ was born.

IMG_0944.JPGThe Monday after Mothers Day I came into the office and they bought me a balloon and a card for Mothers day. It was Monday morning so I was really tired from the weekend and I didn’t realize it was for me. After I saw Simon filming me and Iris giving me the card I was so happy! I loved it that they even gave me presents for Mothers Day and I was really happy with the balloon and the card. I was even more surprised when I heard that they already thought of it in February and that they all kept it a secret for that long. Some already did forget about the idea, but it was still impressive as I am normally the one behind the pranks / ideas.

Working in the INTERNeX office is always different and so much fun. The pranks, random presents and the whole team just make it amazing.

See you guys tonight at PuB NiGHT!

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

This was a real interesting weekend, Saturday I rented a car in order to go to the border to get my visa and later that day there was the Staffhouse party. Everybody went crazy there and had a lot of fun as well as got to meet a lot of people, definitely a memorable day and night.

It’s snowing in Vancouver, that was the first thing I saw when I looked out of the window. That was not the best news on an early Saturday morning because I just rented a car for that day, and needed to go to the border in order to get my visa and driving trough that kind of weather is not my favorite past time.

I went together with three German guys, who also needed to get their visas. It was an interesting car drive because I was able to refresh my German language skills. It took about 45 minutes to get there and go to America and Flag Pole back to Canada, where we went trough the process of the visa application. All in all it took us about 2 hours.

Because I had to rent the car for 24 hours, I went shopping for the heavy stuff. I bought a lot of drinks and food at No Frills, which is a really cheap store. When I came back from returning the car the Staffhouse party was getting started.

This was my first Staffhouse party and it was definitely a memorable one.

The evening started slowly but more and more people showed up. At 12 o’clock there was a surprise, namely a lot of balloons where let lose into the room and it ended in a  mass attack on the balloons. It sounded like new years with firecrackers. But overall I had a lot of fun and got to meet people from all over the world. Brazil, Canada, Spain, Russia, China, Belgium, Sweden, Germany are just a few examples.

This was my official kick-off weekend, so I am really curious what the next weekend might bring.

What are you doing or what have you done on the weekend please write me and win amazing prices!!

Was your weekend green too?

This weekend was awesome! INTERNeX candidates and their friends joined the St. Patrick’s Day Club Crawl last Saturday. We started at The Blarney Stone with 49 people! The first people showing up got a free beer and everyone got free green accessories. After a good time at the Blarney Stone and after everyone arrived we were ready to go to the next place!
We had our own INTERNeX Party Bus to bring us from club to club. This was one of the highlights of the evening! Driving through Dowtown Vancouver (and further) in a big yellow school bus with party music! After the Blarney Stone we went to Roxy, The Motel and Au Bar!

In the INTERNeX Party Bus

At the Blarney Stone two of our candidates (Jeanette and Patrick) had to compete in a drinking game against two others. They both had to down a beer and after wards Jeanette had to blow up a balloon and whoever was faster would win tickets for the St. Paddy’s Party this Thursday and of course our INTERNeX candidates won!! We’re very proud!
In Roxy’s they held a lottery which was won by a friend of our INTERNeX candidate Louisa, David. He won a lot of St. Patrick accessories and some free beers. Congratulations David!!
