INTERNeX Canada: Jelle says ‘Goodbye friends and Vancouver..’

Well, that’s it.. Today I will end my 15-week internship at INTERNeX. In my final blog I want to look back and thank everybody for this awesome time.

I still remember the first week in the beginning of May.. I just bought my bike and with a big jetlag I took off for my first day at the office. It was a bit confusing to hear all your upcoming tasks when you are half asleep ;). But absolutely everyone that works here gave me a really nice welcome! I was overwhelmed by the friendly attitude of Canadians and my colleagues.

I will remember this stay for many, many years. We did so much fun stuff together! Our weekly pub nights, the cool trips/events in the weekends, the water rafting in Chilliwack, aaaaand of course the big Rocky Mountains trip! That was just: WOW..

To Tim and all my colleagues at INTERNeX, thanks for making my stay so comfortable, amazing, fun and AWESOME! I learned so much about working with people from a different culture. I’m happy that INTERNeX gave me this opportunity. It’s a lifetime experience.

It will be a bit strange to leave Vancouver Friday morning. Right now this city feels like a second home for me.. After my holidays in the USA I will start my third year at Tio University. No more weekly pub nights and big trips. Instead of that I will continue my international tourism education.. But I’m motivated and ready to go for this last year!

At last I want to give a big thanks, hug and goodbye to everyone that I met during my stay, and that gave me one of my best summers ever, thank you!!

Goodbye, Auf wiedersehen, Adiós, Farvel, Adjö, Arrivederci, Tot ziens

Cheers.

INTERNeX Canada: The PR Team!

In just a couple of short days, we will be saying goodbye to one-third of the Public Relations team – Marianne.

I am going to be really sad as she sits beside me and feeds me chocolate! (Ha, you might think that I am joking, but I am not.) Of course, I will miss everything else about her like the way she inspires me to be a more outgoing and spontaneous person.

The PR team’s job at INTERNeX is to plan events for the candidates and take care of the social media channels. In planning events, our goal is to basically make sure our candidates have the best possible time while they complete their internship or other jobs during their stay in Vancouver.

The experience of going abroad and gaining international experience is so much more than just working and completing the report that your school requires.  It is about the people you meet and the things you do outside of work that makes your time away from home memorable and unique.

This is why we have so many events going on every week, such as the weekly pub nights where we try to find new pubs to try out every week, weekly activities such as our paintball event on December 9th and our bigger trips such as our Seattle trip on December 16th. We want you to have a great time and have a great time ourselves as well!

Coming to these events is the best way to meet new people and form new friendships because we are all in the same situation which is being new to this foreign country.  One of the candidates, who is also leaving soon, was reflecting upon his experience in Vancouver the other day. He said that one of the best things about being part of INTERNeX was that it was easy to meet people, whom he wouldn’t have otherwise, through attending our events regularly. He will definitely be one of the people I miss the most and now I will have a place to stay when I travel in Germany!

So, I encourage all of you to come out and join us for all the exciting stuff we have planned for you in December and the upcoming months! Since we plan these events specifically for you, please do not hesitate to tell us what you want to do and where you want to go and we will make it happen! Don’t worry we are not scary, I swear.

Cheers,

Queenie

An Era Ends, a new Chapter begins…

Founder and CEO teccrab online service inc.When I first met Tim in 2006, INTERNeX was already a very successful company, but with an awful website. Tim knew that it wasn’t very good and was interested in changing it. Unfortunately, I did not impress him with my first, and maybe too honest, pitch because I didn’t know how the Canadian Culture worked. But our paths crossed a couple times and at some point I was able to introduce him to a tool that led to the first improved INTERNeX website. Under the domain internexcanada.com Tim finally had a website he was able to update himself, and to modify it to his liking. In April 2007, I had to go back to Berlin because my work permit expired, but I stayed in contact and gave some advice here and there. It was in November 2007 when Tim visited me in Berlin and I remember when we were sitting in a Taxi on the way to the airport when we talked about a position at INTERNeX. He also mentioned that I needed to do something besides improving the IT and so I became the Placement Manager for the construction program too.

Hence, I started in March 2008 as the IT and Placement Manager for INTERNeX. One of my first tasks was to improve the network, security, and database, and on the construction program side, learn how to place construction workers from Europe in companies in Canada. I also learned how to deal with immigration Canada and how to fill out LMO’s to get the proper permit for the candidates who needed one. My program, to explain here for just a second, was a bit different compare to the other INTERNeX programs. The Province of British Columbia was at the time actually looking for construction workers because there was a shortage in BC. This changed when the worldwide financial crisis hit all of us. I remember that one day I was talking to companies about getting more people, but suddenly the same companies were downsizing, and unfortunately, some of them even disappeared.

Fortunately for me, I still had my IT and internet marketing background, which eventually led to the position as the Public Relation Manager of INTERNeX. It also helped me get nominated by the province of British Columbia and allowed me to finally immigrate into this great country.

In February 2009, I started the first Blog of INTERNeX and became very active in the social media world for the company. First I interested one intern to help me out, and over the years had more and more PR people on my team. I actually counted how many interns I was more or less responsible for in the time I was working for INTERNeX. I had 3 IT, 3 Marketing and over 30 PR interns in the 4 and a half years. I personally think this is amazing.

Tim and I became close friends and he was the one “pushing” me to do something besides INTERNeX, something on my own. I thought about that for a long time; I didn’t wanted to leave INTERNeX, but had the feeling that he was right. In the time I worked for INTERNeX as IT and PR Manager I often had the chance to talk to fantastic people who are great partners of INTERNeX. They asked me how I did things in the internet and with social media. In turn, they implemented some of those ideas into their own strategy. Tim pointed out that I will eventually be in a conflict of interest between everyone, and after a lot of consideration, I finally started teccrab online service inc.

However, now I had to take care of two companies at the same time. People who know me know that I don’t do anything half way. If I have a job and a responsibility, I will give more than 100% which led to the problem that I couldn’t work full time for INTERNeX anymore. Tim and I had many meetings regarding this matter and we decided that it might be best for everyone to end a chapter, but also start a new one.

Therefore I am sad to announce that I am leaving INTERNeX at the end of September, but also proud and happy to announce that INTERNeX has become my client for internet marketing and PR as well as other IT consulting services.

So I hope it is alright that I am not saying good bye to all the brilliant INTERNeX’ers because I will still be around 😉
