1. Why did you choose to complete an Internship?

When I first came to Australia, I was determined to find my career path and work in Australia at some stage. My understanding is that having varieties of experience is crucial in order to know what I am good at and to find what kind of work will eventually make me feel happy. Australian internship was a great opportunity for me because I was able to be exposed to varieties of experiences during my internship. There are challenges at times, however there is definitely something that I learned by overcoming these challenges and eventually I am starting to get the solution on how I would like to progress my career in Australia.

2. What have you learned the most during your internship?

I have absolutely learnt a lot with my host company specifically in the area of human resource management, from document control to analysis of employment data, and my supervisor have given various opportunities step by step so that I could tackle most tasks without any difficulty. I have also learnt how to interact  and make relationship with people at a workplace. Thankfully I have been working with thoughtful and helpful staff from host company and I would like to take this as an opportunity to thank them.

 

3. What benefits do you feel Australia Internship contributed to your internship and time in Australia?

I’d like to say that Australian Internship has been a great help to arrange a host company but also throughout my entire internship period. Especially ‘Intern Weekly Learning Plan’ is helpful, which I have written everyday about the tasks I did and what I’ve learnt. Since I started working, Australian internship continuously monitored my weekly intern life through this system, and returned with feedback. The positive feedback from Australian Internship constantly encouraged me and motivated me.

 

4. What advice would you give future interns?

It might sound obvious but the first thing that I would like to say is that ‘always be confident’. Whenever you feel that you are not confident, please don’t be easily discouraged remembering this is a process to learn. The reason of why we are doing internship program is for continuous improvement of ourselves.

Secondly, I would like to emphasise is to engage with the team and ‘always actively learn’. If you are always ready and willing to learn given tasks, even if it is little, I’m confident that you would gain more than you expected.

 

5. What do you enjoy most about Australia?

The most enjoyable and meaningful experience to me in Australia is that I was given great deal of opportunity to learn English and its culture. For myself, experiencing another culture has been an eye opener. And I do believe that Australia internship program has given these opportunities.
