Why did you decide to do your internship in Australia?
After searching for some opportunities around the world, Australia was the only country that had the opportunity of the internship in my field and this was a major factor for me. The huge economic growth and the social development of it also influenced in my choice. I will not forget to mention the endless summer, at least in Queensland!


What made this experience unique and special?
Being able to leave everything behind to face a new life was something that made me excited from the very first moment. After arriving here, I felt daily the non-stop excitement of discovering everyday something new and living millions of new experiences, not only in the workplace but also in the life in general.


How has this experience impacted your future?
This experience certainly will influence me in my future decisions such as looking for somewhere else to live after graduating. Living abroad opened my mind and gave me the ability to rethink the opportunities that the world offers.

What was the highlight of your experience?
Definitely leaving the comfort zone. When you have everything in your hands, it is easy to not look for new ways of improving something in your life. Being by myself and without some privileges opened my eyes and now I feel that I am able to achieve everything that I want.

What advice you would offer someone considering interning abroad in Australia?|
Since early days, I had in my mind that I wanted to live abroad. For me, at least, leaving my family behind was the worst part, but after I took the first step of searching for opportunities, I had to set my mind to a different frequency so I would be able to achieve something else more than what I had. So, the only tip that I would give is to at least search for something that catches your attention and, from there, do your best to conquer it.

I am originally from Brazil and came to Australia to improve my English skills. My first stop was Sydney and very soon, I adapted to the Australian lifestyle and fell in love with the country.

I started working at Australian Internships in 2014 as a Marketing intern. It was my very first international experience in my field and I was very excited about the opportunity. After a few months, I was offered a full time job as a Marketing Executive in the Sydney office, which is my current role.

How would you describe your work?
I would describe my work as challenging and rewarding. Challenging because I am always dealing with different people from around the world, with different cultures and expectations. I learn a lot from this people and feel very happy to be able to help them improve their professional skills. Coming to Australia to complete an internship is a dream for many of our candidates and I think it is really rewarding to be a little part of it!
