Why did you choose to complete an Internship?

After graduation, it was a bit difficult to get my career started straightaway so I decided to undergo an internship to get myself framed with some professional experience in the industry and an international work experience turned out to be a massive breakthrough for me.

What have you learned the most during your internship?

Adapting to the Australian work culture! I transformed my self-management skills and work ethics to build strong interpersonal relations with my teammates and to tackle potential risks and working with my superiors, I perceived ability to preserve prestige of the organization.


What do you enjoy most about Australia?

During holidays and weekends, I loved to travel around to explore more about Australia’s beautiful sceneries and got a chance to meet and interact with people from different nationalities. Beaches happened to be the best part of my journey and Sydney turned out to be my ultimate holiday destination. I am grateful that Australian Internships gave me this opportunity that helped to forge my career growth and skilfulness.
