This INTERNEx HiGHLIGHTS it’s a farewell at the same time… from Jelle. This was his last week as an INTERNeX intern.
The first that you could read in the last office was a poster in the wall with two different definitions of an internship. I cannot remember exactly what was written but it was something like this I guess:
1) Bring coffees, make photocopies and do the things that nobody wants.
2) Learn; improve your knowledge and skills, being part of a company.
We hope that Jelle had the last one with us. INTERNeX is one of the leader companies which provides internships in Canada, so as Tim always says, our internship has to be the best. Good philosophy, isn’t it?
An internship in Vancouver can be so many things: See one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, confuse 5 cents coins with 10 cents coins, maple syrup, problems to understand the bus schedule, rainforest, differences between ride a bike in Netherlands and in Vancouver, meet a bunch of new people, learn to say cheers in 15 different languages… have a card with your name (you feel so important)…
A lot of things that I’m sure that Jelle wanted to tell us about how was his short life in Vancouver. But we don’t have time for so many things! We only have one video per week, so he tried to explain us the real highlights as an INTERNeX PR. Our trip to the Rockies, skydiving, many many pub nights, have to record a video the day after the pub night with Simon… and say thanks to the INTERNeX people!
Farewells are sad and happy moments at the same time. Today he starts a road trip around USA with her girlfriend, so we hope that he will have fun. Don’t forget us!
