Why did you choose to complete an Internship?
I chose to do my internship because I needed some work experience when I finished Uni. I wanted to focus on work solely rather than working and studying at the same time. It also gives me an opportunity to intern abroad, which will look good on my resume.
What have you learned the most during your internship?
What I've learned the most is cooperating and understanding people with the work they do. It is one of the important factors when it comes to work because everyone's perspective is different compared to your own, which includes teamwork. This helps with problem solving and to build positive working relationships with colleagues. Hence, understanding is critical when it comes to working as you understand and get the perspective of work.
What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?
AI has been really helpful during my time here in Australia. They have given great support to me and constantly updating with the things that I needed. Australian Internships has helped me to stay on track and be productive with work from the beginning until the end of the internship program. It is great that AI has chosen a workplace for me without being worried about which company that I have to apply to.
What advice would you give future interns?
I would say working in a company for the first time in your first week as a fresh graduate is nerve-wrecking yet exciting but just enjoy your time while working as much as you can. It really helps you to learn and experience new things at work and ask as much questions as you can before you work full-time. Take notes down if you think you would forget anything that is really important and be organised with your time and schedule. I think of my internship programme as an opportunity!
What do you enjoy most about Australia?
There are so many reasons I love about Australia which are the food, people, scenic beaches, events and the environment. It is one of my favourite countries.
INTERNSHIP PROGRAM SUPERVISOR
Growing up in a landlocked Botswana, It has always been my dream to study overseas, with Australia being particularly top of my list. When the opportunity presented itself, I moved to Australia in pursuit of a Doctoral degree in Clinical Neuropsychology with the University of Queensland. This big move not only meant following my passion for Psychology, but also discovering a new world of opportunities and diverse cultures. Joining Australian Internships as an Internship Program Supervisor further rubber stamped my love for interacting with people from different walks of life, and working towards my personal and professional development, and that of others.
How would you describe your work?
Joining the world of work is often anxiety provoking, as there are a lot of expectations from both the individual (intern) and the company. My role is to provide the kind of support one needs in order to get the most valuable internship experience. This includes walking through the internship process with the intern, from the moment they make the decision of joining the Australian workplace, to the time they have gained the experience and are ready to soar. Communicating weekly with the intern about the ups and downs of the workplace, as well as guiding them on the most effective strategies to ensure that they make the most of their internship opportunity.
What do you like the most about your work?
I thoroughly enjoy meeting interns from different backgrounds, cultures, religions and professions. I learn a lot through each interaction, sharing my experience with them and hearing all the success stories upon completion of the internship (and there are a LOT of success stories). Each intern I work with certainly gets me to appreciate what I do.
Your message to the interns?
It is never too late to follow your dreams, no matter how challenging things may get. With 1 foot in front of the other, run your own race, at your own pace, and you will get there in the end. Remember, “ Courage doesn’t always roar! Sometimes courage is that little voice at the end of the day that says, “I will try again tomorrow” “Mary Anne Radmacher.
