PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

We’ve come a long way from where we began. Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. So sad this was already the last PuB NiGHT of the year. No, just kidding. We will be back next year with new pubs, games, bingo, beers and karaoke.


This PuB NiGHT was a good one to close this year with. The game Cards Against Humanity was on the table again. And because we had a birthday girl called Linda at our table, we sang Happy Birthday in every language. After the cheap happy hours beers it was time to go. As we already warmed up our throats with the Happy Birthday song, we decided to continue our beautiful singing in the karaoke bar.

Everybody sang some nice songs. Or at least they tried. After all the fun was done we decided to go to get some food. Luckily for us, the DJ was hungry as well. So he brought Rebecka and I with his car to the Roxy. We drank one more beer before eating the very delicious chicken wings. Then, later than expected, the night was really over now.

Thank you all for joining us this PuB NiGHT. Because you will miss the karaoke so much next Wednesday, we will be there singing our favourite Christmas songs all night long. Yes Sebastian, you can sing Lady Gaga again if you want. Happy Christmas and I hope to see you at our NYE party!

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.
