Why did you choose to complete an Internship?
I chose to complete my internship so that I could explore a career interest, gain some experience in my work field and develop the skill set required to become a successful Accountant. I also strongly believe that internships are a key to building experience as a recent graduate. The other reason I chose to pursue an internship was making my resume strong. I knew the importance of a strong resume as it could have been tougher as a fresher to be considered for any accounting position without any sort of real world experience.
What have you learned the most during your internship?
Internships are always a great resource for learning new things. As an intern, I adopted so many new skills and cultivated the most important time management skill. My internship also boosted my professional confidence. I confronted and overcame the fear of what’s it like to work in a professional ambience.
The most important thing I have learnt during my internship is the importance of developing relationships with people who are at the same career level, no matter which industry they are in. Personally, my internships have introduced me to a lot of useful resources and have given me the
opportunity to meet a variety of professionals in my field. To cut the story short, links build to one another- as they grow, so do you.
What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?
Australian Internship gave me the platform to prove my abilities. Right from the time searching for a host company until I finished I had full support from my supervisor. The weekly feedback gave me opportunity to recall the things I did for the whole week and motivated me to get my tasks done in a more efficient way thinking it will be reviewed again. Personally, AI did a good job in finding a host company according to my preferences and did a very hard work in background setting up the contract between me and the host company.
What advice would you give future interns?
Internships provide you with the building blocks you need for your future. Many internship opportunities help set the foundation for your career. It is important that you choose you internships based on your interests and career prospects. As an intern, you have the opportunity to get your foot in the door with a company. If internship is done with a great self-esteem it can gain clarity on your strengths, weaknesses and interests.
What do you enjoy most about Australia?
Living and working in Australia is just amazing. Sure, they fall under ‘the landscape’, but I had to give special mention to Australia’s wonderful beaches and the wealth that its oceans provide it. I did my first scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and have seen some scintillating sights just beneath the waves in the years since. I’m inordinately proud of Australia’s multiculturalism. There’s something truly beautiful about that, I love it is because it means there’s an abundance of delicious foods from across the globe to sample.
