Candidate Exposé – Jakob Rodehorst

“Moin Moin” that’s how you say Hello really often in the northern part of Germany .
Today i would like to introduce you to Jakob, a 26 year old student from Germany.

Originally he’s from Hamburg but currently he’s living in Berlin doing his Master’s degree in political science.
Back when Jakob was planning his stay abroad in Canada his main motivation was to improve the chances to a masters degree. Additionally, since he did his internship at Amnesty International and this company still represents a future potential employer for him, this practicum was an ideal opportunity. For sure he also wanted to get some international experience after finishing his bachelors degree, get to know new people and improve his language skills. He really enjoyed working at Amnesty International, a well known human rights organization, where he organized the volunteers and helped them in planning the events. He was able to acquire skills such as working independently on his own topics, organizing different tasks as well as communication skills while finding new partners for the company. For him an additional interesting point was to learn a lot about and from the first nations in Canada.
He definitely had many unforgettable memories but meeting amazing people from all over the world while exploring the Rocky Mountains and the many other beautiful nature spots was the most memorable thing for Jakob. He joined several INTERNeX pubnights, did a bike ride in Stanley Park, went to Richmond night market and celebrated the typical German “Oktoberfest” at UBC with us. As I can say, it was a really fun time.

For him Vancouver, Canada presents the most beautiful and unique landscape he has ever seen in his life. Next to this there is this unique North American city which has so much to offer. The perfect place to be 🙂
Has this trip inspired him to travel more? Yes of course. He actually did right after his internship was over. He rented a car with his girlfriend and travelled to the eastern part of Canada, flew to New York and Mexico. This definitely sounds more than amazing.
During his stay abroad INTERNeX was a great support for him. We could help him to get in a social circle and he appreciated having someone to talk to with small problems. INTERNeX made the perfect start in this new and at the beginning even strange environment possible for him. And that’s definitely a thing everybody wants to hear.

Thanks Jakob for sharing your special Canada memories with us 🙂

Have a great week 🙂
