PuB-Night Review

What a fun night – again. I know I’ve been saying this pretty much every Wednesday now, but I am honestly having such a good time with you guys. Thank you! 

Last night we went to the Beaver again, the place where it all started – at least for me. And I honesty cannot believe it’s been almost two months since then!
One of the best things about the Beaver is also the fact that our 18 year old candidates are allowed to join as well. It’s always so nice to have everyone together!IMG_4828.jpg

So as always, we started the night with a few beers and some fireballs. And yes – of course I went for the nachos again!
And what would a Wednesday night at the Beaver be without music bingo? Considering the fact that we were such a big group, I was absolutely sure the victory will be INTERNeX’. Usually the luck always sticks with the newbies, and since we’ve got three this week, my hopes were pretty high to be honest.
But for some reason the luck was not on our side this time. Nobody got a single bingo .. what a disappointment. But of course our mood didn’t get harmed by this.
So after a few hours we got our stuff together and made our way to the Cambie. Always keeping in mind, that this was the more important match to win … after what happened a few weeks back (still bothering me btw).
But as we got there, no Beerpong atmosphere was to be found! Apparently nobody in there wanted to play a Beerpong tournament at this time, at least that’s what we’ve got told. Obviously this was not a reason for us to give up or even go home.
So after a few friendly chats with the bartenders, we got some cups and balls and since we were enough people to make 4 teams, we just started our own little tournament.
And as soon as we started, so many other people joined in and it just happen to turn out just as big as the usual Beerpong nights at the Cambie.
Anyways, not trying to show off here but the girl power, once again, proofed it’s strength and won the INTERNeX Beerpong tournament. I am so proud ladies, even tho we didn’t get to win the T-Shirts! 
I really hope that someones ego recovered by now :-D.
(I am really sorry for the quality of this picture…. my camera just isn’t really the best :-D)

Anyways I had a fantastic time and a short night!
Thanks again for such a fun PuB-Night, you guys are fantastic! 

So for those of you joining the hockey game – I am very excited to see you on Sunday.
And the rest I hope to see you at next weeks PuB-Night at the 131 Water Kitchen & Bar. 

Have a lovely Thursday! 

Cheers,

New ‘Kids’ on the Blog

Two new arrivals are to be welcomed this week! Everybody, these two are Conrad and Sandy from the UK!img_4776.jpg

Both of them are taking part in our Practicum program. Conrad will work in a radio station to live out his passion for music and make use of the knowledge he gathered during his studies. Therefore, this placement just seems to be perfect. Conrad never lived abroad before, but no worries, most of us haven’t  and eventually we are here to support each other in this. His plan is to stay in Vancouver for the whole next year. 

Sandy just graduated in marketing and now wants to gather some precious work experiences on this side of the globe. During the next month you will find her at the art gallery in New Westminster. Just like Conrad, this is her first time travelling alone and living abroad. 

In fact, the main reason for them to come here was to escape the Brexit. I am joking…. of course this wasn’t the MAIN reason… ;-).

As these two already joined us on the Christmas Market this weekend, we already know that they are an amazing addition to our group. Everyone else, make sure you’ll get to greet them at tonights PuB-Night at the Beaver at 7pm. 

Can’t wait for tonight.
See you there.

Picture of the week!

This week’s picture of the week was taking in the Fraser Canyon around 3 hours northeast of Vancouver. In the picture you can see Lucas, Matteus, Patrick and me, George one of the great PR interns working at INTERNeX.

The four of us rented a car and went on a weekend roadtrip through the diverse inland of BC. We cruised through narrow canyons, wide countryside, snowy mountains, dry plateaus and stopped at the most incredible scenic spots on our way. We went ice-fishing on lake Wood north of Kelowna and met a lot of amazing and very friendly Canadians.
Canada is incredible – in all kind of ways!!!

In case you experienced such a great trip or want to share a story with a great picture of yourself, your friends or you just took a picture of the beautiful countryside Canada has to offer: send an email to PR@internexcanada.com! You picture might be the next picture of the week!

 

Cheers,

George

Thank You INTERNeX!

Hi Folks! It’s Tiffany here. So what’s new today?

Well, it’s sad to say that today is going to be my last day at INTERNeX. As most of you are or have been a student once in the past, the calling duties of school is always an issue. With exams coming up, to my dismay, I will be unable to continue my position as a PR Intern at INTERNeX. So, you won’t be seeing me around the office- but perhaps on the street or up at UBC (say hi if you do!)

It truly has been an interesting experience with many memorable memories and rewards. There is no other place I know of with such a diverse working team. From the moment we enter high school, teachers, mentors and our parents have driven the phrase “to be able to work with a diverse group of people” into our minds. It is not until now that I understand what that phrase means. Having worked in several Canadian cultured companies, I find that the work ethics and cultures of these companies are all very similar although diverse in terms of the work you do. At INTERNeX, I was exposed to so many people from different cultures it was a little overwhelming at times. I was given a glimpse of what the working ethics of people from German, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Mexico and France were like. And I can tell you, it’s definitely an eye-opener.

Personally, after this experience, when my friends say “I worked in a diverse team environment”, I can proudly say, “Well, me too, I worked with people from around the world, literally”. The staff at INTERNeX has all treated me very well especially when it came to my difficult school schedule. They have been very accommodating, flexible and excruciatingly welcoming.

Being given the opportunity to intern at INTERNeX, I was able to learn about how this agency operates and all the efforts that go into placing a candidate. My knowledge of IT management was strengthened tremendously due to spending hours in the “dungeon” discussing the evolution of IT and its position in society today. I further developed my social media marketing and promotional skills through preparing promotional design materials and updating our social media networks.

The role of PR Intern at INTERNeX is one that can be very fulfilling. Having been here for one month, I’ve seen improvements in myself in terms of communications skills and confidence level. It’s unfortunate that during my time here, I was unable to plan a couple out of the city trips, but am very glad to have made some amazing friendships with those who came out to Cheesecake Night.

If you have any questions or are very interested in applying into a Public Relations position at INTERNeX and would like some feedback, let the office know and they can pass you my contact.

As for now, thank you INTERNeX for all your gracious help and best of luck to the next intern!
