INTERNeX Staff House Party 2010-01-30

Hey, how are you doing??

Vancouver is ready for 2010 Winter Olympic. And as you have already noticed, a lot of the Olympic staff is wearing clear blue uniforms and is working all over the Vancouver area. Besides, most of stores in downtown will be open till midnight or 24 hours during the Olympics. I can not wait to be a part of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic and share such a nice time with you. These days, many people go out for parties in order to pump themselves up for such a great event.
I went to the INTERNeX Staff House Party last Saturday. It was so much fun!!! A lot of people who do not live in the Staff House showed up. I really enjoyed drinking and dancing with them and was really that I could expand my network of friends. I really do appreciate them for giving us such a good memory, thanks to the organizer of the party “Anandita” who lives in INTERNeX Staff House. Here is her comment below:

“It’s always fun when friends get together. But when they get together with a theme, now that’s madness. I enjoyed the INTERNeX staff house party this Saturday. The theme was Hippy, so everywhere you saw there were flowers, colours, and oversized accessories. I caught up with some old faces and met some new people, all in the name of peace. It was a great way to let myself loose and enjoy a great time. Everyone was welcomed with beads, colour, music, a drinking game and open arms. Over 30 people attended this awesome blast where friends made more friends. The party started about at 9pm and run on through till 3:30am in the morning. It was just a great experience”

Please check out pictures on our flicker page and face book. You can see how much fun it was.

Thank you!!!

INTERNeX PuB NiGHT

Happy midweek guys! So I just wanted to take the time to rave about our most recent PuB NiGHT this past Monday. We had around 15-20 people show up and I’m sure for those of you who were there, you know how happy this made me! (You can see my grin from all the way in the back of the picture)

I got a lot of great feedback from everybody and it really reassured me that all the hard work that we have put into our social networking tools has truly paid off. I had such a fun time speaking to each and every one of you and hearing all about the crazy INTERNeX Staffhouse party, so I really have to attend the next one. Check out our flicker page to see some of the hilarious pictures they took at their Hippie House Party.

So just you all know we have one more week at Malone’s Bar & Grill and then we will be packing up and moving to a new location for three weeks. I have a small list of possible places but if anyone has any ideas please let me know by email or at the next PuB NiGHT. Gotta run now and get back to work, ciao!

INTERNeX Family Interview #3

So it’s that time again everyone…another staff member introduction. This interview is quite amusing because Simon is a little bit of the office joker. I work with him quite a bit so i hope you guys will finally be able to put a face to the person who is largely responsible for a number of your social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, the INTERNeX website and of course our blog. Happy reading!

What is your first name?
Simon, a.k.a The Dungeon Troll.

Where are you from?
Berlin, Germany.

What languages do you speak fluently other than English?
German.

What position do you hold at INTERNeX? And for how long have you been working here?
I am the IT manager and the online marketing/public relations manager; so basically I’m the big man haha. I have been officially working here since March 2008 but I was an IT consultant here since 2006.

What made you want to become involved with INTERNeX in the first place?
It’s hard to answer this question simply because my involvement was a gradual process. Step by step I became more and more involved and before I knew it I was a permanent member of the INTERNeX family.

In what ways do you think INTERNeX is unique from other international placement agencies? What does INTERNeX specifically offer that no other company can?
First and foremost I believe whole heartedly that we are a company for and about the people…you. We genuinely care about our candidates and see them as people not just dollar signs. Our tailor made programs provide our clients with unique opportunities that allow them to grow in a monumental way. And now that the number of international partners has increased we are able to exponentially increase our scope of reach.

What changes within INTERNeX have you personally witnessed since you have joined the team?
Definitely more systems, better IT and a stronger network in terms of our connection with our candidates via various social media networks. Also I have worked extremely hard to increase our level of visibility on the World Wide Web… just Google us.

Where would you like to see INTERNeX in the next 10 years? Do you have any New Year’s goals for the company?
I personally would like to see an INTERNeX office in every major city around the world! I know that this is a huge statement to make; however, I truly believe that this is a possibility since we already have offices open in New Zealand, France, Toronto, Vancouver, and the list goes on. One of the new years resolutions that I set for INTERNeX has already been achieved so that’s amazing…take a peek at our new website and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Tell us one interesting thing about yourself that not a lot of people know?
Well some people have said that I am a pretty decent chef and one of my recipes was actually published in a Canadian cookbook, which features dishes from all around the world. Was quite proud of myself for this one.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
For sure Vancouver, cause it’s the best place on earth!
