INTERNeX Canada: About INTERNeX!

Life is full of so many wonderful opportunities, don’t you think? But it’s whether or not you decide to grab hold that really counts in the end. Sometimes, we let the most important chances slip by! INTERNeX offers these chances. But possibly the greatest aspect of INTERNeX is that there are so many options!

Do you consider yourself an animal lover? Do you like working for a cause  that really matters? The volunteer program offers you an unique experience working and helping injured wildlife! If you can’t get away from the city, there are volunteer opportunities in animal rescue centres!  But let’s say you’re more interested in different cultures. There are even chances to work with First Nation’s community where you’ll get to learn and experience their culture!

Maybe our internship program might interest some of you. This program gives you the chance to gain practical work experience in an international company! Not only will you get to learn about the skills in that specific work industry, but you get to see new things and live an exciting new life abroad!

Not looking for anything specific but working in a new country? Hospitality program invites you to do just that! Work in the hospitality sector and become a tourist in a new city!

All of the opportunities here at INTERNeX are unique and tailored to meet your needs and wants. But each opportunity always has one thing in common…an amazing and valuable experience. 

 

So I urge you to take chances, and make the most of your life! Don’t waste it, just by sitting in front of your computer! Check out our website here for more information on different programs we offer!

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the week!

left to right: Rie, Ilse, Sandra, Dylan, Daniel

This photo was taken during our pub night at the Railway Club! To me, it represents the start of something new…like new friendships, new people, and new places. And before that night, I have never been to the Railway Club before but I really thought it was special. It had a different feel to it than most pubs I know…it felt more personal. So I guess, it was a new experience as well. But I am so happy I got to know and welcome more new members to our group 🙂

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Since I started my internship here at INTERNeX Canada couple weeks back, I began to think how different life is when working full time and not going to school. I’ve always been a student. Sure I’ve worked a few part time jobs here and there, but never actually taken the step to stop attending classes for a whole semester to work. Many of you might be already used to this kind of feeling…how shall I put it, a sense of independence? And I don’t mean the kind of independence you get in college where teachers no longer follow you around if you haven’t done your homework.

But for me, it was definitely strange at first.  I’ve never lived alone in a different country and I still live with my parents. So being here at INTERNeX and meeting people around my age (even younger) who have all traveled here to work alone, made me think how inexperienced I still am. I have so much more to learn, as a person, and to see in life.

I don’t believe I’m the only one who has felt this way before -a bit scared, a little overwhelmed, but completely excited to experience new things…sort of like when a kid is left at a candy store all alone. Okay I admit that was a pretty bad analogy.

So I’ll just end this with the words of John Maxwell (that pretty much sums up how I feel), “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone“. 

Hope you guys have a great weekend 🙂

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: About INTERNeX – 3 Top Reasons to Love Vancouver

I arrived five weeks ago and right now, I can say that this place is my new home. The home I picked myself from tons of places in the world. But what is so special, what distinguishes it from other cities, what are the arguments to choose Vancouver over any other great destination for an experience abroad? Here are my 3 top answers. They are different for everyone as people are different but these are mine.

1. I love Vancouver because it is so different and yet so familiar.

When I decided to leave home again, I was sure it was going to be a place on another continent and 6 hours on the plane from Germany at the absolute minimum – just to get the real feeling of leaving everything far behind and going on a true adventure, you know. 😉 After I had eventually made it all the way across the Atlantic Ocean then, I soon realized that the lifestyle in Vancouver didn’t come as a total culture shock for me. For sure, it’s more easy-going and apparently more “North American” than the European cities I know but Vancouver didn’t give me a very hard time to adapt. So home is where the heart is? Yes, I agree.

 2. I love Vancouver because it has taken all sorts of boredom from my life.

As a kid from the countryside who studied in the ‘megacity’ Salzburg and did some internships in Munich, I’m not exactly used to big city life and also not too keen on full time entertainment. So what do actually I want then? And that’s exactly the thing about Vancouver: You can pick your own pace. There is every opportunity to go wild each night or hike every day or kayak or shop or chill on the beaches. Right now, I love my status of a busy person at work whose free time is packed with tons of dinner or movie dates, party invitations and awesome stuff in the outoors on the weekends. INTERNeX plays a major role in that, so thanks! 🙂 Nevertheless, I know if I decide to rest and take it easy for a while – Vancouver is such a chill place, it’s not going to be all that hard to find a quiet spot somewhere.

3. I love Vancouver because it attracts young people from all over the world who are just like me.

“…who are just like me” sounds kind of cheesy, I know. But it’s true! I have always been an outgoing person who wasn’t afraid of meeting new people but the problem before I came to Canada was, that I simply didn’t meet that many people to begin with. Over here, however – oh my God. I had never before talked to a stranger on the Skytrain and decided to meet up for a drink the next time we accidentally bumped into each other on Robson Street, for example. What a random friendship but it’s great and we still hang out!  People are just more open-minded and willing to make new friends. At work, on the street, at the bar – I constantly find myself talking to strangers. And some of these strangers become friends if you put some effort in it. What a wonderful life it can be if you have the chance to actually look for the people you spend your time with and it’s even better when you reach the point where you realize they like you in return.

Why do YOU love Vancouver? Please add your reasons to the list!! Or what do you expect Vancouver to be like in case you’ve never been here?

I’ll see you around 🙂
