Field: Medical Research
Why did you choose to complete an Internship?
I’ve wanted to go into the medical research field since I was in high school but was unsure if it would be something I’d actually enjoy. When the year was offered in my university course, it seemed like the right time to get a placement to hopefully confirm what I wanted as my career choice.
What have you learned the most during your internship?
I’ve learnt so much during my internship. The main area was just how the industry actually operates. How to apply for grants, how to talk to donors, how to get your papers published etc. None of this I had even considered before taking a placement.
What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?
They have been so helpful! I wouldn’t have been able to do this internship without them as I wouldn’t even know where to begin looking. Also, the intern nights are great. I moved halfway around the world and didn’t know anyone. Attending those nights gave me a chance to actually meet my IPS in person and meet other interns who are in the same boat as I am.
What advice would you give future interns?
Embrace every opportunity given to you and commit 100% to it. The rewards are going to be amazing. And don’t be afraid of failure or not knowing something. The whole point of this experience is to learn and grow, you are not expected to be perfect.
What do you enjoy most about Australia?
The heat and the sunshine are definitely a plus! But also everyone is so welcoming and friendly it really is lovely to be around.
MARKETING AND ADMISSION OFFICER
My name is Koey and I am 24 years old, I am originally from Hong Kong and this will be my 7th year in Australia. I fell in love with Brisbane when I first came here to study in 2012 and I have stayed in Brisbane since then. The weather here is amazing, as I love going to the beach, therefore, Sunshine State, Queensland is perfect for me! I also love travelling, I try to go to at least one new country every year and this year I have my eyes on Japan! I can’t wait to try all those ramen and sushi and all the food that I can consume!
How would you describe your work?
I work as Marketing and Admission Officer in Australian internships. I work closely with the Marketing team and Program Admissions team. I am responsible for all the enquiries that come through emails or phone calls; I also attend fairs or event representing Australian Internships. I really enjoy my work and I am glad that I can assist our interns in the very first stage and guide them through the process. It is very rewarding especially when I see that they got the internship/placement they wanted and successfully completed it in the end.
What do you like the most about your work?
I like the fact that through us, a lot of students or candidates find their way to their dream career. Seeing them getting experience that they never thought it would happen and in the end achieving their career goals makes me feel accomplished.
Your message to the interns?
I would like to tell them never give up on their dreams and it is never too late to chase it! Things could happen a little bit differently from what you have planned but as long as you stick to it, it will happen! Therefore, make the most out of your internship; it is a life-changing experience!
