PuB NiGHT Review: The Dime On Granville

At the last PuB NiGHT we checked out one of the new places-to-be in Vancouver – the Dime On Granville. It is located in the heart of Downtown at the Granville Street. The Dime is part of the Warehouse Group. The Warehouse Group has established itself as one Canada’s most popular restaurants for its tasty food, refreshing drinks, and energetic staff. The best part is, that every item on the  food menu costs just $5,95. 

On Wednesday the INTERNeX gang checked out this new Pub and now we can for sure say: approved. Great location, delicious food and good drinks.

After the extended weekend because of the Canada Day on Monday, we were even more excited about the next PuB NiGHT to go partying again. Not to mention that this week thirteen new candidates started an internship, a volunteer etc. by INTERNeX. 

The night started off with some food and drinks. Our waitress just kept running with pitchers of beers, mojitos and cocktails for all new people arriving.

As time went on our tables at the Dime filled more and more. At 9 pm there were already 20 people. So many of you showed up, new and old faces – it couldn’t have been any better. When everyone finished the last beer, cider or cocktail it was time to say goodbye to the Dime. Some of us extended the evening, as it has become a tradition, at the Yale Saloon.

To sum it all up. The last PuB NiGHT united good food, drinks and deep conversations. Besides, we were able to welcome a lot newcomers at the INTERNeX gang. It was nice to get to know some of you better. I am sure we will have much more great PuB NiGHTs here in Vancouver. 

I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! Now I am looking forward to see many of you on Saturday for our hiking excursion at the Lynn Canyon park.

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 we had the pleasure of interviewing Cristiane, a lovely German girl who is doing her internship in Vancouver. She comes from Dusseldorf and she has been in Canada for 2 months and she will stay for another two more. Her workplace is located in the representative Woodwars Building!

Why did you choose Canada?

I choose to come to Canada, because a bunch of friends of mine had been before and all of them were absolutely in love with this country, so I thought “If it is so nice, I have to see for myself”.

What kind of internship are you doing?

I am an intern in a non-profit organization, a community economic development charity which helps people to develop productive futures and build sustainable communities.

Is your internship useful?

Absolutely, I had to do a three-month internship in order to be able to continue with my studies and doing it here gives me the opportunity of gaining international experience and continue practicing English at the same time that I develop task related with my degree.

What kind of task are you responsible for on a daily basis?

I usually work in the social media marketing and the advertising, office work like receiving people, answering the phone… And what I like the most is helping with the charity golf tournament which is a fundraising event. This money will be used to help people giving them the opportunity of reinsertion into society after drug abuse or another problem.

What do you like most about Canada and Vancouver?

I love the open-minded and friendly people and this city has plenty of them. Vancouver also has a lot of different things to offer, is a big city, with mountains, sea…

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

I visited Whistler and Victoria and did other several short trips like Grouse Mountain, False Creek, Capilano… and of course I will visit The Rockies!

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

I attend whenever I can and I find it a really good way to meet new people and to avoid homesickness. It is great to be with people that are in the same situation as you are.

What´s the best thing about INTERNeX International Exchange?

Thanks to INTERNeX I found my internship. Actually the PR Team is the best thing! They are an excellent connection between the candidates and the organization, you always have someone to talk to.

Would you recommend INTERNeX?

Yes, it is a relief to have someone to support you, in whom you can trust if there is a problem. The social events help to meet people so you are not alone in the new country.

Thank you Cristiane for the interview!

Cheers,

Irene

How was your weekend?

Hey guys,

how was your weekend? My weekend was great as always!

On Friday I was at the hairdresser. I have cut my hair for the Saturday night…
On Saturday morning I was running across North Vancouver to the Keith Lynn Park.
The rest of the day I have prepared myself for the Staffhouseparty. The Staffhouseparty on Saturday night was like ever a great awesome party. It started at 8:30pm and ended at 4:00am for me, some crazy guys celebrated until 6am. It was a really hot atmosphere and as always, many people from different countries were there!
If I will miss something from Canada then the famous Staffhousepartys!!!!!

On Sunday after my hangover I went with friends to the Queen Elisabeth Park playing pitch & putt and Tennis…

I’m so glad I came here to Canada to make my internship!

I hope that you all had a great weekend as I did! And if you send a mail to pr@internexcanada.com and tell about your weekend you get the chance to win a price!  And your story will be posted in the ‘How Was Your Weekend’ blog.

Cheers,

Claudio
