INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday – Proud of being canadian!

It´s interesting to see how proud canadians are of their Nation. Canada Day is coming, and Molson Canadian did an awesome commercial in Europe to promote the Canadian beer.

Molson Canadian has been known as a great advertising company, specifically known for advertising the lifestyle of Canadians with phrases like “This is our Beer” and “this is our land.”

In this ad, you can see how Molson Canadian distributed Red fridges through Europe with a white Canadian Leaf.

Everybody tried to open the fridge, but unfortunately it had a passport reader, so just those with a Canadian Passport could open it. (lucky them ..hehe). Then beer for everybody!!

I personally think that it was a good guerrilla campaign..very attractive and creative. I hope this Company surprises us with a guerrilla campaign very soon.

What do you think about it?? Did you see another interesting one that you want to search?

I hope you enjoy this commercial, and I wish u a wonderful weekend !

Best,

Mercedes

Time to say goodbye!

Dear INTERNeXers,

Today is my last day that I am working for INTERNeX International Exchange, so here is my little goodbye blog post. The last 5 months I have been working for the company with pleasure! As probably many of you know, I was doing my internship at INTERNeX and now it is time for me to leave.
During my internship I have learnt so much and I am really thankful to the whole INTERNeX team! Everyone has been so welcoming and nice to me and I really enjoyed working with all of you. Also, I would like to thank all the INTERNeX Candidates, because you have made my internship even better. The Whistler trip, the Rocky Mountains trip, the Karaoke Party at the Staff house and all the PuB NiGHTS were absolutely awesome. So, thanks again everyone for making my experience what is was!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that my internship is over, I am going to travel around with my parents and my sister. I will visit the Rockies again and show my parents the staff house, the INTERNeX office and of course one of my favorite places the Blarney Stone! INTERNeX has been my first international work experience and I will never forget all the things I have learnt here! It’s hard to say goodbye, but I am confident to go as we have an amazing PR-team that will take over!! 🙂

Thanks again everyone!!

All the best,
Claudia

Picture of the week!

This week we have a funny picture from Adam. He lived in the staff house and told me that it was his turn now to have an awesome picture of the week on the INTERNeX blog’ . He really wanted to be the picture of the week because this week is his last week here in Canada and he wanted to show the other candidates how much fun he had here! He was  in Vancouver for the Work&Travel program and worked at a coffee company for 7 months. He describes his time here as AWESOME!
In the picture you can see him passionately eating from his pizza in a restaurant in Victoria. He was there with his friend Kevin! He choose this picture because it is typical Canadian with him wearing his Canada sweater.

This week it was Adam’s turn, but maybe next time your picture will be picture of the week!! Do you have a picture of a great experience here in Canada? Send it to pr@internexcanada.com with a small description or story!

Cheers,
Claudia

What is INTERNeX all about?

Hi everyone,

Since I am interning for INTERNeX I’ve learned so much more about the organization. I found out that they do so much more than what I thought before I came here, so let me explain a bit more about what INTERNeX is all about!

INTERNeX International Exchange is Canada’s leading organization allowing you to work, live and learn in Canada and now in New Zealand! INTERNeX believes that a person needs to gain real practical experience in a foreign environment, like Canada or New Zealand. Basically INTERNeX is there to give international students a great international experience. So, if you would like to work, live and learn and have an awesome time in Canada or NZ, INTERNeX has the right program for you!

The 5 programs
INTERNeX offers you five different programs:
• Through the City Placement Program you can get a paid job and gain international work experience at the same   time.
• There’s a Hospitality Program which gives you the chance to get a paid position in Canada and New Zealand’s most breathtaking resorts whilst still having the time to explore the beautiful surroundings.
• In the Internship Program you could learn in your field of interest or study. This could help you to get a better job in the future as you will have international work experience.
• With the Ranch Stay Program you can live close to animals and really have an “authentic” Canadian or Kiwi experience.
• Go for the Volunteer Program if you would like to help, rescue and rehabilitate orphaned and injured animals!

As you can see INTERNeX offers you all the things you need to have a great international experience!

Accommodation
While you are here in Canada or New Zealand you will need a place to stay. INTERNeX also provides you with different kinds of accommodation services, so if you need a place to live, they can help! The accommodation service consists of: home stay, student staff house and hostels. The home stay means that you will live with a local family, this will really add to your experience! The other option is the student Staff House. I live in the Staff House and it is great, because you will make friends really easily. A hostel is also a good solution if you prefer to live close to the city centre. A lot of people come and go in these places, so you will meet loads of people!

The INTERNeX Staff
The INTERNeX staff comes from all over the world and they speak together 10 different languages. This could help you, because there won’t be a language barrier, so they are always able to listen to you and give you insights from your own country’s perspective! The INTERNeX staff are there to assist you out with any questions or problems you have. They want to make sure you will feel comfortable coming into the office at any time with any problem, no matter how big or small.

I can imagine that maybe you are a little anxious to start your big adventure, but that is where I and the rest of the PR-team can help you out. A large number of INTERNeX candidates come alone here, so the PR-team could help you to meet new people and share your experiences through a lot of exciting events. An event we organize is for example the PuB NiGHT, which is every Wednesday, but there are also trips to the Rockies, Whistler and Seattle and many more fun events!!

I hope to meet you here soon! 🙂

Cheers,
Claudia
