Expose of the Week

Julia, Germany

How did you find INTERNeX International Exchange?

Through a German partner organization.

Why did you choose INTERNeX International Exchange?

Because that German organization cooperates with Internex.

Why did you choose to go to Canada?

First of all, I wanted to improve my English. So I was looking for an English speaking country. I was torn between Australia, Scotland and Canada. I decided against Scotland and Australia, because Scotland is too close and half of the German population seems to have emigrated to Australia.

I haven’t regretted my choice so far.

How did you find a place to stay?

Through Internex!

What kind of internship are you doing and do you find it useful?

I am doing an events, marketing and finance internship at SSU. I get to meet many interesting people and I have learnt a lot about SSU, what my coworkers do and how all the different departments work together. I think it really helps me to figure out what I want to do later.

Is your internship a part of your university program and is it useful for your career goals?

Yes, it is part of my university program and I believe it will be very helpful for me! My English has improved a lot, I feel very comfortable speaking English …

How do you like your internship?

I love going to the events! It is great to leave the desk for a change and to meet so many friendly people. My coworkers are super nice.

What kind of tasks were you responsible for on a daily basis?

As I am working in finance, marketing and events, I am responsible for a lot of different tasks. I send invoices to clients, processpayments, go to events and write articles about these events, I answer questions about events and sponsorship etc.

What do you like most about Vancouver?

What’s not to like? In the last months, Vancouver has become my favourite city! I love it that there is so much fun stuff you can do here. And the scenery is awesome!

Where have you been in and around Vancouver?

I went to Seattle, Whistler, Victoria, Kamloops, Kelowna, Chilliwack etc.

Do you attend the weekly PuBNiGHT and do you think this is a good way to meet new people?

Yes, I think it’s great! Really helps to great through stressful weeks and a fantastic way to get to know people.

What was the most memorable thing you did in Canada (so far)?

Wow, I spent five minutes thinking about this and so many things popped up in my mind, it is simply impossible to decide. I really loved the White River Rafting, my Seattle trip was also fantastic (does that even count?) and I really love spending time outdoors, the forests and wildlife are so impressive.

Let’s sum it up: What was the best thing about your internship in Canada (so far)?

The Events!

And what was the worst thing?

Pretty sure I should not mention this 😉

What is the first thing you will do back home in Germany?

I will have a homemade cappuccino. The only place with great cappuccino here is the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel and I find it a bit pricy to go there all the time.

Would you recommend INTERNeX International Exchange?

Of course! Mainly because of the fantastic interns! 🙂

Cheers Julia
