Candidate Exposé – David Kabat

My name is David, I’m 21 years old, from Sweden and originally born in Poland. My future study it’s going to become a high school teacher in biology/chemistry.

20170812_153305 - david kabatI decided to go to Canada because I want to learn and improve my English and explore the second biggest country in the world. I found INTERNeX from another organization in Sweden. It was thanks to my school back home as well. I got very good support through the whole process from applying for a working holiday visa to having a place when I arrived in Vancouver and an introduction about the city, transportation, tax.

I chose the work & travel program. It was the best option for me, because back then I just finished high school. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had the possibility to work, get new experience and learn to be more independent. The best part was to meet new friends from almost  all around the world.

Right now I live with a roommate in downtown. I found it thanks to a friend.

My first impression was great. The nature, mountains and my biggest surprise was how open and kind people are here, completely different from back home.

David KabatThe events INTERNeX organized were the best. I attended lots of INTERNeX events. This is the best time for spending time with your friends, making new friends and welcome new people. Of course I had lots of fun during pub nights and trips. I did lots of hikes in places close to Vancouver. I have also been to Tofino, Victoria, Rocky Mountains and Whistler.

Vancouver is a safe city, there is a lot of nature and art in the city. It is a very multi-cultural city I could feel free in. The most memorable thing I did was bungee jumping in Whistler and the Rocky Mountain trip. The first thing I will do when I am going home is meeting friends and family and starting school again from my break.

Laugh your head off!

Yesterday we posted a story on the website about The Laugh Shop in Calgary. But people in Vancouver can also enjoy a fun evening full of laughter! Check out the new Improve Centre on Granville Island.

The improve Centre is open every Wednesday to Saturday and holds shows that are entirely improvised by stand-up comedians. The stand up comedians compete each other, which make for a fun filled show!

Even the price of a ticket is something to laugh about. With prices starting from only $5.00 you can have a cheap fun filled evening.

Think you can do it yourself?

Think you are funny and would like to give stand up comedy a shot? Not to worry: every Saturday from 1.30 – 3.30 pm the Vancouver TheatreSports League holds workshops at the False Creek Community Centre on Granville Island. For only $11.00 (plus tax) you can show off you talents.  Be sure to tell us if you are thinking about signing up, we would love to come see you!

The Improve Centre location

The Improv Centre is located on 1502 Duranleau Street, Granville Island. For directions how to get there and more information about the shows, check out their website.

Candidate Exposé

Meet Gudrun, a young mind from Germany who is ready to conquer anything Canada throws her way. I first met Gudrun at the INTERNeX office a few weeks ago, and then again at INTERNeX PuB NiGHT! We chatted for awhile about her internship and how she was enjoying her time spent in Canada. She was so interesting to talk to, I thought I would ask her to share more about her experiences so far.

Why did you decide to come to Canada?
Canada was my destination of choice as I decided I would like to spend time in an English speaking country and Vancouver has a reputation for being innovative and very keen on sports. I think living and working overseas is an important learning/life experience and in today’s global society, it is getting more and more important to gain a more international perspective.

How did you find out about INTERNeX?
INTERNeX is in collaboration with my German organization, which arranged everything for me.

What program are you currently participating in?
I’m doing an unpaid internship!

Do you like program offered by INTERNeX?
Yes, I think they offer many different kinds of options, so anybody will find the right program.

What do you enjoy about your job?
I enjoy learning a lot about the structure and work processes within the company. It’s great to have the opportunity to work unsupervised and to display initiative.

What skills do you use at work?
I use my computer skills along with my verbal and written English language skills.

What would you tell others about Canada as a country?
You have to experience Canada yourself, but I would recommend Canada to anybody. It seems to be a country with lots of international influences and many opportunities, regarding sports, culture, nature, shopping and sightseeing… and the Canadians are all very friendly and open-minded.

Can you sum up your experience in 10 words or less?
Vancouver is awesome, I’ve enjoyed every minute so far!

What kind of activities have you done since living in Canada?
There is still so much to do, but I’ve been to Seattle already, I also enjoyed Stanley Park and the Aquarium, Granville Island, The Capilano Suspension Bridge and of course some pubs in Downtown.

What are your plans for the future?
After my internship I want to travel first before I’m going back to Germany. Afterwards I will either apply for a new job or doing my PhD. I haven’t decided yet.

Employee of the Month

Hey, how is every-body doing??

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic is upon us. A lot of people are coming to Vancouver from all over the world to share a very exciting time with us. That means every store will be insanely busy. I am pretty sure that our clients in Vancouver are already working much harder than usual, because of this great international event. With this, I just came up with an idea to motivate INTERNeX clients to work in the Vancouver area.

It is called “Employee of the Month”. This new event is so that we decide who is the best employee. The person who is chosen as the best employee will get a great prize. I am going to ask your employers about who they think is the greatest employee in their store and why. After that, we are going to decide who will be the “Employee of the Month”. I hope this event will be a chance to motivate you to work and improve your skills more and more. Employee of the Month is planning to be held every month and if it is possible, expand to the area of Toronto, Whistler and The Rockies. I will update you all by the end of this month who will be the Employee of the Month. I hope you look forward to it!!!! Contact me at Shinya@internexcanada.com for any suggestions.

Thank you
