Newest Addition to the PR – Team

Screen Shot 2019-12-03 at 2.47.42 PM

My name is Sabrina, I am 22 years old and I just started working here at INTERNeX.

I love my home country Australia but I also love to travel and experience different cultures. I study my Bachelor of Business in my home town Brisbane and I am working towards gaining experience in Human Resources and Public Relations.

I am currently in my first year of studying but I love to get out experience things in the real world (that’s why I couldn’t wait to travel). Since starting my Bachelor of Business I have also been involved in a university society where I have had experience in event planning and team building exercises. I am very excited to work with the INTERNeX team over the next 2 months.

In my free time I like to go to the beach, spend time with my friends and relax at a park. However, when I travel I love the winter and I can’t wait to see snow and go skiing.

Please don’t hesitate to come say hi at the upcoming events, I’m very friendly and I don’t bite! And I will happily tell you about how we ride kangaroos in Australia J

I am looking forward to meeting you at all the Pub-Crawl events every Wednesday!!

See you soon!

New ‘Kids’ on the Blog

Welcome Simon! 

After no new faces in the last week I am happy to introduce you to Simon today. He came all the way from Sweden to take part in the INTERNeX Hospitality program.  So far what I can tell, this young man is ready and excited for all the upcoming adventures ;-). 9caa171b-0899-44dd-8c14-fab3b04c59df.jpg

As for many of us, this is his first time living on his own. So I am sure he’ll be happy to get your tips and tricks on this one. Simon will be placed in Vancouver for his 6 months stay, but of course he doesn’t want to miss out in getting to see some other great destinations too. And again, I think he’d be happy to hear about all of your  experiences and even get inspired by them!
Simon we hope you’ll have a great start here in Vancouver and I promise you, everyone will be very excited to meet you tonight – that’s for sure. There will be many challenges you’ll get the opportunity to grow on, but finding friends doesn’t need to be one of them! We are very happy to take you in our INTERNeX crew! And I think we are quite a nice and fun bunch of people to spend time with. ;-).

Therefore make sure to welcome Simon at tonights Pub-Night at the Moose’s Down Under.
As the weather gets colder and winter is just around the corner, we’ll escape to the warm Australian vibe tonight. 
See you tonight ,Mates’!

Newest addition to the PR-Team

So this is the new face, that will keep on popping up in the following months.

My name is Nadja, I am 21 years old and just started working at INTERNeX.
Just like you, I am a big fan of travelling and simply can’t get enough. Therefore I took a break of my studies in Germany to explore the beauty of Vancouver.

I am studying Communicational Science and Psychology in my 3rd year. Don’t ask for the city, its super tiny and you won’t know it anyways ;-). So moving here from such a small city, has been quite a challenge for me. Luckily I am always  looking forward to new challenges. After doing my Bachelors degree I definitely want to work in Marketing and/or Public Relations, therefore I am very happy about the job as a PR Coordinator here at INTERNeX.

In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, go skiing and snowboarding. Therefore I can’t wait for the winter to come. I am absolutely ready for it!
I love to go out and meet new people and just enjoy life as cheesy as it sounds.

Since I want to keep some personal information for the upcoming face to face conversations, I am gonna end here.
So just a quick reminder, I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the upcoming Pub-Night and Halloween-Costume-Shopping!

Hope to meet you soon.

– Nadja

The food, like the culture, music and landscape, enjoys the greatest diversity you can experience anywhere on earth.

So get out there and see it , feel it, hear it and take it all in… there is more to the USA than you could ever imagine.
