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!
