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.

Field: Business Management/Marketing
1. Why did you choose to complete an Internship?
I decided that I wanted to do an internship because I wanted to gain some knowledge about what specific field of work I want to go into after I graduate. Internships are a great way to start experiencing the working world without completely committing to a job before you know for certain that that is what you want to be doing for work. Being an intern allows you to see, and also engage in work happening first hand rather than just learning about it through textbooks.
2. What have you learned the most during your internship?
I think that overall my communication skills have improved dramatically. I was the kind of person that would jump to conclusions and want to answer some one’s question right away without completely hearing the whole question. So not I take the time to listen and ask confirming questions and then I think about how I can answer the question to the fullest.
3. What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?
AI from the beginning made my internship experience better because I trusted that the internships that they would set me up with were safe and reputable. Every person that I have conversed with in AI has been very personable and helpful. If it weren’t for AI, I would not have been able to meet the wonderful people that I have in the program.
4. What advice would you give future interns?
The best advise that I can give to future interns would have to be, take initiative. If there is something wrong or not going the way that you want, talk to someone about it. Also make sure that you try and meet as many people as you can and immures yourself in the culture because you never know who you will meet and you never know the next the that you will be able to come back to where you are.
5. What do you enjoy most about Australia?
What I have enjoyed most about Australia would have to be how diverse it is here. I have met so many people from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. It has been absolutely wonderful meeting new people and learning all about them and what makes them the person that they are. It has been a very pleasant surprise getting to know all the amazing people and cultures that Australia has to offer.
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!
What do you like the most about your work?
I am completely passionate about my field of study (Marketing, Branding and Advertising), about understanding people and how they relate to brands. Building a powerful and trustworthy brand is something that motivates me to wake up every morning and come to the office. Being in a company that is helping people to achieve their career dreams is inspiring and I love being part of it!
Your message to the interns
Well, I was an intern in Australia before, so somehow I feel I understand each and every one of our interns. I think it is very important that you follow your dreams and that you believe in yourself. We are capable of unimaginable things, we just need to believe in it!
