INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review – Study Time @ Library Square

Hey folks,

Yes, just like every Wednesday, we did it again: Gather at one of the city’s coolest spots  and have a great time with both old and new friends in Vancouver! This week’s location was the Library Square Public House on Georgia St, right next to the Public Library (that was easy eh?). What started off with six people turned out to be one of the busiest PuB NiGHTs in quite a while! About 25 people squeezed together and many of them enjoyed their first real Canadian beer like some of our new candidates from Denmark. Speaking of the Danish, they literally invaded us last night!! Seven of them could still not beat the German record though, sorry guys. 😉 A language crash course in Danish – contents are not going be published here – made me realize that German is definitely NOT similar to Danish at all. Even a standard sentence sounds like a succession of tongue twisters to me. Fortunately, there are many more nights to come where all the non-Danish of us can practice their language skills.

So thanks to everyone who came out and had a blast and a special thank you goes out to Denmark for letting go of all these awesome people – we’re happy to have you guys here. Hope to see you all of you soon, for example at our W or W? Wakeboarding Event on Tuesday next week! Make sure you sign up soon and don’t forget to check out last night’s pics on flickr.

Any comments on last night and suggestions for next week’s PuB & CluB NiGHT on Friday are highly appreciated! 🙂 Soak up some BC sun and have a splendid day!

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.

Yesterday Lauren and I had the pleasure of meeting Ali, a 21-year-old student from Turkey. When he walked into the office smiling, we could immediately tell that he had a great personality! As he sat down to chat with us, his casually unbuttoned shirt defined his easy-going attitude and we could tell he was enjoying his time in Vancouver!

Why did you decide to come to Canada?
I came here to continue my education in filming! I moved here alone but also have a friend and cousin living in Canada.

How did you find out about INTERNeX?
I attended a language school and they referred INTERNeX for a work placement.

What program are you currently participating in?
I am in the Hospitality program, and I work at Blenz as a Junior Barista and have been employed there for six months.

Do you like Hospitality program offered by INTERNeX?
I do. I recommend it because it’s better than finding a job by yourself, they give support and offer guidance.

What do you enjoy about your job?
I get to meet new people every day.

What skills do you use at work?
I interact with people daily so I must have great personal skills and also I have to be able to focus and multi-task.

What would you tell others about Canada as a country?
I would say that this country is a mix of Europe and America, it is a beautiful country. This is my first time in Canada and I love it because it’s very organized. Everything is safe, people obey the rules.  Explore a new country as soon as possible, it’s very different! There’s lots of new culture and language.

What kind of activities have you done since living in Canada?
I’ve been snowboarding, to Whistler and to Stanley Park!

What are your plans for the future?
I plan on living in Canada for awhile and attending university for communications and filming.
