Kondwani - Agribusiness (Malawi)

Why did you decide to do your internship in Australia?

The motivation behind my application for industry placement was to experience the working environment in Australia and get the practical knowledge so that I can easily articulate the theoretical part during my study period.

What made this experience unique and special?

Working a new environment with highly motivated and dedicated people was something that will inspire me beyond the Internship. The other important aspect of the internship was the challenging tasks assigned and the support given during the entire period of the internship.

How has this experience impacted your future?

The experience from the internship will improve my spirit of how I view work in terms of being professional. Considering that I was working in value addition and processing, I believe the experience that I have taken out of this will be very valuable going back home where we are still struggling with issues of quality management in value addition and processing among smallholder farmers

What was the highlight of your experience?

The high-level analysis of issues and people skills is something that I can take from this internship. The ability to complete assigned tasks and suggest solutions for improvement was one of the most satisfying moments during the internship.

What advice you would offer someone considering interning abroad in Australia?

For someone considering doing internship in Australia, the best thing go about it is to set your objectives on what you want to achieve at the end of the internship, and then do a research for a host organization that can help you achieve the set objectives. At work place make sure you engage and be willing to learn.
