August in Australia is a transitional period, with the winter gradually edging towards spring. It is time to prepare your students and recent graduates to enjoy a sabbatical period in Australia during its warmest months: December to February. That’s when most students have a 3 months break to enjoy the Summer time and maybe gain some work experience!

We officially started to receive candidates for internships during the Australian Summer Break and are now open to assess their documents. Have your candidates prepared to send their resumes and cover letters! Don’t hesitate to contact your Marketing Representative if you have questions on how to submit your candidate’s profiles.

Why did you choose to complete an Internship?

There are two reasons why I chose to complete an internship: the first one is that I wanted to have an overseas study experience, open my horizons, meet new friends and travel. In addition, improve my English speaking skills. The second one is that I think it is a wonderful opportunity for you to have an experience related to your major before your graduation. It can be recorded in your CV, which is helpful for you to find a good job. You will become confident and better after you finish your internship because you will learn more and experience more than before.

 

What have you learned the most during your internship?

I think the most I have learned is how to communicate with others, how to get along with others. I visited several colleges in Australia, which helped me to have a better understanding about the Australian education and teaching methods, workplace relationship as well. There are some differences comparing with China and some good education methods can be used in China or improve Chinese education methods. Therefore, the internship will help you in your future work. The most important is that I have a good chance to practice my English-speaking skills every day, which makes me feel very awesome.

 

What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?

I think obtained great benefits from AI, as the chance to have an internship experience in Australia. This chance helped me improve my English communication skills, learn how to develop a good relationship with people at work, and meet new friends. I think AI can help you solve problems and give some internship suggestions for you when you feel confused; your IPS will help you immediately. AI also arrange the intern night once a month, it is a very wonderful chance for all interns to get together and communicate with each other and meet friends, share experiences as well. Therefore, thanks AI for helping me to come here and arranging an internship for me, which let me learn more. I am having a rich and wonderful experience during my internship.

 

What advice would you give future interns?

I think it is very good opportunity for interns to have an experience in Australia. The first thing is, you need to have a good attitude and proactive communication with other people and during the conversations, you can learn more things. For example, you can share information for local people and gain new information from them, which will help for opening your mind. And the second thing is, you need to write a clear explanation about your expectation which includes the internship and homestay, it is helpful for you and AI when they assist you find an internship and arrange the homestay. And you should have a plan for your internship, make a good use of your internship time in Australia, and every day will be wonderful and valuable.

 

What do you enjoy most about Australia?

I enjoy the coffee and chocolate in Australia,  which let me feel very excited because I love eating sweets which let me have a good mood. I really love the weather in Brisbane, it is very comfortable environment with fresh and clean air. People are kind, most of them will smile and say hello to me which let me feel close. I also enjoy the meeting with my Japanese friends, we always contact with each other and have a good day in weekend. At the same time, I like to go shopping in the weekend; I enjoy the shopping centre because I can buy some local products for my family and friends.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM MANAGER

 

My name is Keli and I am the Internship Program Manager in Sydney. I have worked for Australian Internships for 4 years and 3 months now and I live in Wollongong NSW very close to the beach. I am very happy and feel graceful to be part of such a fantastic organisation. In my spare time I love to walk to the beach, exercise, shop and travel (I would love to visit the Greek islands and Positano for the second time).  


How would you describe your work?

My work is very rewarding especially when we are able to find fantastic internship opportunities for our interns. Although it can be challenging at times I enjoy my work and working within a fabulous team of dedicated professionals who all thrive to work together and achieve collective goals as a team.

What do you like the most about your work?

I like the fact I can in essence change someone life by sourcing them an internship opportunity which can be a stepping stone to their future employment opportunities. So many interns have educational qualifications but  minimal or no hands on experience and an internship allows an intern to experience a real work life experience in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Your message to the interns?

Make the most out of your internship every day you are there as what you put into your internship is what you will gain from the experience. Not only will you meet industry professionals who can help you possibly network, you will gain hands on experience in a real working environment.
