Candidate Exposé – Blanca Alanis

Blanca AlanisI am Blanca, 22 years old, from Monterrey in Mexico and I am studying International Marketing at UDEM. This is my last summer as a student, so I decided to come and do my internship and have an international experience. Internex has an alliance with my school and I was looking for an internship program in Canada, and so my teacher of international experiences gave me this option.

I chose an internship because you have the chance to work in another country where the culture is so different than your home. So besides working in the things you like and what you want to do, maybe the rest of your life, you can also learn here how the work-environment is in a different part of the world. Besides that you will be able to bring your culture here as well, and take good things from the place you worked at to your country.

At my placement you have to be a person who enjoys to work, being proactive will helpBlanca Alanis (words) you to gain their confidence so they will trust you to do tasks that they don’t give to an intern normally. If you have creative skills and know how to work under pressure you will make it in this job. I have to say that being an outgoing person will help you to make friends at work and it makes an easier going environment. And the last thing that has helped me a lot is being efficient. They love it when you do your tasks well and fast and when you keep asking for more tasks.

My first impression when I arrived, I remembered I said “It’s super green here”. Every time you are walking or sit in the bus, wherever you turn your head, there are trees and gardens everywhere. At first, I was scared of being by myself at night but you get used to it and you realize that Vancouver is a safe place.

I attend quite some activities and pub nights, and I really like that they organise these things. It helps you in making friendships and to go out. They are such good persons, if you have a question you can ask them and they will help you, they make you feel part of the group from the beginning. I have been to the pub nights, the different museums, beaches, grouse mountain, garibaldi lake, victoria, Lynn Canyon, etc.

What I like most about Vancouver is that the people are kind, the city is super clean and green, the recycling system, how the economy here is thanks to small business and that the city is made for public transportation and bikes, not only for cars.

I didn’t really had difficulties, at first it was just getting used to use the public transportation and feel comfortable knowing that they are safe and always on time.

The most memorable thing I did so far I have to say that being on the top of the garibaldi lake made me feel great, I was tired of waking up so early and I was just about to not going, because I just wanted to sleep but I knew I had to go. It’s a long hike and takes you the whole day, so if you are patience you will enjoy the great and beautiful view. That’s how life works, patience is a virtue and if you learn to wait and being perseverant, at the end everything will be worth it.

This experience inspired me to travel more. Now I know that I want to work in different places, because I like to understand and live the different cultures. I don’t have a specific place, life takes you where you need to be, and so if the opportunity comes to me I’ll go anywhere.

Internex was helpful for me because they help you in the process of finding an internship in what you really want to do. They have different events that give you the opportunity to meet friends and they help you also during your stay to make you feel comfortable and answer all your questions.

The first thing I will do when I get back home is see my family, friends and my dog!!, they are the one who I miss the most, also my food of course, ill see them while we eat some tacos.

The INTERNeX Internship Program

Last week we posted about our INTERNeX Travel Desk. We try to inform you about our INTERNeX programs and services every week. This week I would like to tell you something about our Internship Program.

If you are a student, future student, graduate or post-graduate, then INTERNeX’s specialized internship and research programs gives you the chance to get real-world, hands-on specialized experience in almost any industry. You learn about day to day operations of Canadian companies at a more senior level than general work experience.

INTERNeX has worked with more than 1000 companies in nearly every industry sector across Canada. We work with multi-nationals as well as non-profit organizations and small to medium sized enterprises. All placements are unpaid to ensure we have the best ability to place you according to your interest and specific requirements.

We are doing an internship ourselves, at INTERNeX, and it is a great opportunity to put our theory learned in school into practice and to broaden our business network. Remember, in a business world, it’s not about what you know, but who you know!

After you finished your internship you will get an Internship Completion Certificate, you can ask you host company for a letter of reference and you’re ready to start your career!

If you want more information about the INTERNeX Internship Program, you can find FAQ, testimonials and program information on our website.
