Candidate Exposé – Klara Krieg

Klara KriegMy name is Klara, 21 years old and I am from Germany. Currently I am studying Business-Engineering. I decided to go to Canada for the international experience and because I have a fascination for the country.

I found Internex through my university, since they have a collaboration. I am doing an internship here at the moment and I really like it! For my internship you need to be able to work independently and be open-minded as a person.

My first impression I got when I came here is that the airport looked nice but small and that Canada is absolutely beautiful. I still feel that way now. The PR-team organises events and activities and I think they are really good. I love the events and the girls do a very good job organizing everything! So I kind of attended nearly every event in the last 3 months.

What I like most is that Canada is just a beautiful, fascinating country with a lot of different attractions. The nature is stunning, especially Vancouver with the beaches, mountains and city centre!

A difficulty I had to face here is that I am living in Surrey, which is too far away from downtown Vancouver… but that is kinds of the only negative part about my entire stay here. The most memorable things for me are the hikes I did and the great people I’ve met.

Internex was helpful for me to give me a good orientation, good support and the events helped a lot to meet new people and to have a great time in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend it!

This experience definitely inspired me to travel more, but I don’t know where I will travel at the moment. When I get back in Germany the first thing I will do is eating bread and CHEESE! And meeting my boyfriend and family again!

INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

One more week till March?! I am totally excited for the upcoming months because there is just so much more for us to do and see here in Vancouver! And in case you’re tired of wondering, here are some of the awesome upcoming events that will be happening very soon 😉

Vancouver Aquarium!

What a great way to spend time this weekend by going to the Vancouver Aquarium with us! If you didn’t know, the Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit society that is passionate about conserving the aquatic life. This Saturday we will get to experience the Secret World of Sharks and Rays exhibition as well as so many other fascinating lives of underwater creatures! The Aquarium is great for any weather conditions and is located closely to one of the most beautiful places in Vancouver, Stanley Park. If you haven’t been out to the Aquarium yet and don’t know what to do this Saturday, spend the afternoon exploring with us!

When: Saturday March 2nd

Where: Vancouver Aquarium 845 Avison Way

Movie Night!

Since it was Oscars last night, how perfect would it be for us to go to the theaters? We should all just grab a popcorn and watch a fun movie! So join us for a movie night and experience what Vancouver cinema has to offer! A few days prior, we will take a majority vote on which movie we’d like to go watch. I may need help with this personally, because I haven’t been keeping up with recent movie trailers -uh oh!

When: Saturday March 9

For more updated information, keep an eye out on our Facebook page!

Trip to the Rocky Mountains!

If you were partying with us last Friday night, you may already know about this trip. But just in case you weren’t, we will be going to the Rocky Mountains during Easter Long Weekend with Westtrek tours! It’ll be so much fun as we get to visit places like Banff, Lake Louise, national parks, Johnston Canyon, hot springs, and so much more!!!

There will also be a Facebook event page for our trip so keep an eye out for that! If you have any questions or concerns about this trip, call or drop by at our office 🙂

Experience Canada Through Our Hospitality Program!

Have you always wanted to discover Canada’s vibrant multiculturalism and fascinating scenery but have been hindered by a tight budget? Well, we might just have the solution for you! INTERNeX can provide you with a paid position in Canada’s breathtaking resort communities while still having time to explore and bring back many pictures and stories for your friends and family.

The hospitality program gives you the chance to gain experience in Canada’s world class resort communities. The work experience is in a hotel, resort or associated company in a tourism community in Western Canada (working in the city of Vancouver may be available upon request). Positions and locations of placements are organized by INTERNeX and are based on previous education, experience, English level, ability to stay a full season or longer, as well as general attitude and of course what is available at the time of application.

We are looking for people who are outgoing, flexible, happy, hard-working, good at communicating with others, physically fit and willing to do physical work, as well as wanting to learn, able to adapt to a multicultural environment, and who really want to be in Canada. Some placements require a certain skill set but some do not, as per the application form.
