Name: Natasha Zibusiso Saungweme
City: Canberra, ACT
Program: Hospitality Internship Program
The reason you choose this program:
I decided to do this one year internship to broaden my knowledge in Culinary Arts. I believe that as an up coming chef one needs to travel and gain as much exposure as they can outside their comfort zone. As an intern you are a student who is being taught the art of cooking and presenting the finest dishes with world renowned hotels. It is not easy to get employment with these hotels yet you are privileged to be let in as an intern.
Suggestions for future interns:
Take this opportunity to develop and improve your skills. You might be an intern but you are welcomed as a team member. Always do the best you can within your capacity and know that as time goes on you will improve.
Three things you like the most about Australia:
1. I love the infrastructure in the city and the layout of the neighbourhoods where you can take endless walks.
2. I like how polite and welcoming the people here are. You can strike a conversation with anyone you meet.
3. I like the weather changes especially spring when all starts to bloom again.
ROLE: MARKETING EXECUTIVE
I came to Australia in February 2014 to improve my English skills. My first stop was Sydney and very soon I adapted to the Australian lifestyle and fell in love with this wonderful country. I had worked in an advertising agency for many years in Brazil and was looking forward to have an experience in the field of Marketing in Australia.
I started working at Australian Internships in October 2014, as a Marketing intern. It was my very first international experience in my field and I was absolutely excited about the opportunity that was given to me. I started working in the main office which is based in Brisbane and had a great support from the entire team, specially the Marketing team. I’ve learnt about the business and its marketing goals very quickly and soon fell in love with the company, the whole team and my role. After a few months it was offered to me 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 different parts of the world, with different accents and different cultures. I learn a lot from this people and feel very happy when they apply for the program and have the chance to improve their professional skills. Coming to Australia to complete an internship is a dream for many of our candidates and I think it’s 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!
