About INTERNeX: Hospitality Program!

Are you getting bored with your daily routine? Looking to travel? How about working WHILE being a tourist? Experience the working life in a hotel, resort or any company in a tourism community through INTERNeX’s Hospitality program!

Our program offers you an opportunity to travel abroad and work in world-class cities in the hospitality sector as well as paid positions in resort communities. It doesn’t matter whether you are just taking a break from school or recently graduated, travelling abroad and working with other travelers is both rewarding and exciting!

What are some of other benefits through this program other than working? Well you will be able to improve your language skills, gain experience in the hospitality/tourism industry and especially, learn about Canadian culture! 

But working abroad is different than just simply being a “tourist” in a city. It allows you to truly experience what it’s like to live there. This means not only seeing the glamorous aspects of the city but the not-so great parts as well, giving you a more honest and realistic perspective of the place. Also, getting to meet new people daily while working in this ever growing industry and traveling around makes everyday count and never dull! And of course, you will have the best times through our pub nights and weekly activities!

Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did“.  In other words, we shouldn’t be afraid to take chances in life. So will you be next? 😉  For more information please visit our INTERNeX WORLD Website!

INTERNeX Canada: Expose of the week

This week I interviewed one of our hospitality candidates, Yvette. She is from the Netherlands and works at a language school in Vancouver. Last summer she finished studying and always wanted to go abroad, so this seemed like the perfect time to come to Canada to work and live in a different culture. Yvette originally wanted to stay for just 6 months, but since she is enjoying it so much she is thinking of staying an entire year.

1)    Is your work placement useful?

At first I was only hired for a temporary job of three weeks at the language school, which was basically doing office administration.  After that I asked if there was more work for me to do and they offered me to stay and to join their Teachers Training Program. Which is a great opportunity for me, since I’m a graduated teacher in The Netherlands! Besides this great opportunity I think it’s a very good experience to work in a different country. It has taught me to adapt to a new work environment and because it’s during work I can also improve my  English.

2)     What kind of tasks are you responsible for on daily basis?

At this moment I’m helping out the school with all kinds of things. I do basic Front Office work, such as talking to people and answering phones. They also asked me to think about activities for the school, with a focus on activities for girls only. So I started planning and doing that as well. Besides those things I helped out the Modern Language Department with there administration and I also help out a teacher with some things. Next month, in April, I will be doing the Teacher Training and after that I start doing all the other things again. For summer time they asked me to help out with Activities in the Summer Children’s Program. So all nice things to do, I really like working there!

4)     What do you like most about Canada and Vancouver?

What I like most about Canada and Vancouver is the possibility to meet new people and be in a new country by yourself. I think Canada is a great country for gaining an experience like this, because people are very helpful and kind, so they make you feel at home here. Besides that I really love the nature and I’m really looking forward to the summer, to see how the country looks like with sunshine!

5)     What trips did you do in your free time, also organized by INTERNeX?

For me it is a great thing that INTERNeX organizes so many things, I came here by myself and the INTERNeX  events are a great way to meet people and make new friends. I already joined the Seattle trip, joined almost every Pubnight and lasertaged with INTERNeX. I also had the chance to go to Victoria and I’ve seen lot’s of things in and around Vancouver. But I still have a big list with everything I want to do and see before I leave Canada. Luckily I still have lots of time!

6)      Do you attend the weekly Pub-Night organized by INTERNeX and do you think this is a good way to meet new people?

Yes I do, and it’s a great way to meet new people. I arrived in Vancouver on Monday and could join the pubnight on Wednesday. It was super nice to be able to exchange my first impressions of Canada and meet new people.

7)      Why did you choose INTERNeX International Exchange?

Actually I didn’t  specifically choose for INTERNeX, I applied with a company in The Netherlands and they are partners with INTERNeX. The Dutch organization told me about there partner organization in Vancouver and informed me about the fact that they would organize events and be available for questions.  I also had contact with INTERNeX before I came here, but I never expected that there would be so many things to do.

8)      What’s the best thing about INTERNeX International Exchange?

I think the best thing about INTERNeX is that they are a really professional company and really know how to help people get started in a new country. I really appreciated the warm welcome to Vancouver my 2nd day here and a lot of questions were taken away at the first moment. You can notice that INTERNeX has so much experience with guiding people abroad and that gave me a secure feeling about what I was doing. Besides that  INTERNeX’s best thing is the events, I always enjoy being there!

9)      How did you find a place to stay?

For my first month INTERNeX arranged a place for me in a Homestay family. During the first month I talked to people form INTERNeX and in one of their houses was a room available, I called the landlady, and found my new place to live! 🙂

11) Would you recommend INTERNeX International Exchange?

I really would recommend INTERNeX to other people, there a great company. I already wrote in an other answer why I think so! 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us Yvette! We hope that you will enjoy the rest of your time here, it would be great if you could be us for longer that originally planned! Good luck with your Teacher Training Program!

Cheers,

Lies
