Rasindu - Economics (Sri Lanka)

"I am doing my co-op (internship) in Melbourne, Australia for a German multinational logistics company. As an intern my main tasks involve in helping the forwarding, accounting and administrative departments. I have had the chance to gain valuable knowledge and industry experience in global logistics while experiencing a new culture.

It is also notable how inherently Aussie mate-ship is prevalent even in the workplace. With an Economics major I am sure that this experience will help me gain a deeper understanding about international trade and economics."

Giorgi - Finance (Greece)

"There is always a difference between theory and practice. So, I wanted to get a practical experience in the field of Finance before starting a MSc in Banking and Finance. Furthermore, I wanted to have international working experience so I could advance my career. I wanted to see how the work is done in Australia and to explore a new continent where everybody speaks English.

I have learnt so many things during these amazing 6 month of my internship. This experience helped me to develop personally and professionally. Being intern under this program gave me the opportunity to work with very highly skilled professionals, to discover my strengths and to develop leadership skills. It gave me insight into how job should be done across different divisions within the bank and I worked on very important projects. 

The experience of living and working in Australia is priceless. If you have the opportunity never miss it. Be confident and accept the challenge. Be prepared this experience will make you to dream bigger and achieve even more."

Omid - Accounting (Iran)

"Being students we have our educational knowledge in common. What stands out to employers is those students who have also had work experience by the time they graduate. I feel the internship placed by AI, gives me the opportunity to specialize my skills in the Taxation field, which are generally required for my future career. In addition, I have had the chance of experiencing an Australia workplace culture and atmosphere."

Yue - Accounting (China)

"It is true that a University degree is not sufficient for employment now. I believe that the internship placed by AI was a good platform for me on which I could demonstrate and further develop my abilities and skills. 

The intern position is well suited to me because I really enjoy learning and working in this area. It is worth mentioning that the work environment of the Host Organization is very supportive and friendly. With the professional guidance of my mentor, I’m making progress day by day and becoming more confident in reaching my career goals."
