Co-workers behavior

To be honest i really enjoying my internship here in australia. But im not enjoying my work especially my co-workers they are lazy and taking advantage on us interns. Its say they will give me supervisory training but until now they haven't giving me that privilage. So if you ask me nows my skills development going on? I will honestly answer it or rate is 1.

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing to suggest, great program sponsor.
Response from Australian Internships

I would like to encourage you to keep an open line of communication with your supervisors and colleagues at the hotel. Workplace perceptions have a significant influence on how people get along with others, specially when you are working in a cultural diverse work environment. By having a conversation with your supervisor, you will be able to raise your concerns, gain their feedback and get a positive outcome. The internship program is also about learning soft skills such as communication, negotiation, trust building and conflict resolution, so take this as an opportunity to enhance your interpersonal skills and get closer to your managers and peers.

We will be monitoring your progress and very happy to provide you with support and guidance as needed.

I wish you all the best for the rest of your internship.

Who knew that 26 weeks could change things forever?

Three weeks of planning and I was boarding a plane from Canada to Australia. I didn't have time to think, to change my mind. Everything had fallen nicely into place nicely- flights, accommodations, my internship. I felt assured.

I arrived in Sydney, Australia on September 10th, 2012. A day book marked in my life. From that point forward things would never be the same.

I interned in Marketing within a mid sized company where everyone's contributions were easily identified and valued. My internship was for a 26 week period. During that time I was assigned a wide range of marketing tasks- Social Media Marketing, designing brochures and ads, editing the companies website and email marketing. I took a serious interest in email marketing. I noticed many inefficiencies and quickly I was on my way to redeveloping and automating the email marketing system.

I had opportunities to gain unbelievable experience both life and professional. And today, I call Australian home :)

I want to thank Australian Internships for the great and friendly service and for finding me an internship that changed my life.

Cheers!

What would you improve about this program?
Better accommodation services.

Dreams Really Do Come True

This has truly been the adventure of a lifetime and one that has changed my life forever. Moving to Sydney was the first time I had moved anywhere on my own, I was 7757 miles away from Seattle, did not know a single person in the entire continent and yet I have never felt more at home.

I was lucky enough to intern with Australian Internships itself and from the second I walked in the office I knew I couldn’t have made a better decision. The staff welcomed me with open arms and their enthusiasm, drive, and compassion quickly became extremely apparent.

I am so fortunate that I was able to intern with AI itself and get to know this incredible staff. Everyone here is truly passionate about what they do and believe in the benefit of this program. This was demonstrated by their drive to constantly improve their services which has continued to motivate and inspire me. Most importantly though, they care about their interns and I have experienced this first hand. This staff goes above and beyond always keeping the intern’s best interest in mind because they want to see them successfully improve their career opportunities and help them in any way they can.

I have learned so much in this position and gained extremely valuable experience that will be a huge asset to me in my future career and this is all thanks to Australian Internships. I have been involved in all aspects of marketing ranging from social media marketing to strategic planning. When I am asked by my friends and family at home why I love my job though, my answer is always because of who I work with. This is why I would 100% recommend Australian Internships to everyone because not only will you get to live in the most amazing country in the world you will have the best support from the team at AI who is dedicated to helping you gain the most useful and relevant work experience.

I cannot thank Australian Internships enough for this extraordinary experience and for being incredible mentors to me the entire time!!! I have absolutely fallen in love with Australia and this will always remain as the best six months of my life!

Best experience of my life!

After being travelling for over 30 hours I finally arrived at my final destination, namely Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia. First impression: WOOWWWWW, this looks amazing!! The sun was shining, the weather was great, the smell of the bbq and really nice neighbours who offered you a beer straight away. Just a perfect welcome!

On Monday it was my first workday at the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas Resort. It is the biggest resort within the Port Douglas region, so I thought it would be hard to get to know everyone (350+). It wasn't, since my first day I felt really welcomed by everyone, which gave me the feeling I was part of the "big" team.

My function within the Sheraton was to assist the marketing team with its day-to-day tasks. These were:
• Co-ordinating Sales Managers in their operations
• Preparing quotes and contracts
• Support & create marketing activities
• Organising Site Inspections (planning different set-ups in various venue spaces), which required good internal communication with the responsible manager
• Promoting events (local)
• Organising & hosting social hours (invite guests to inform them about the Sheraton and sell activities that were organised by the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas)
• Social Media Marketing, mainly focused on Facebook
• Administrative work

The feedback I received from my colleagues was always positive, which encouraged my self confidence.

In this review I would like to thank AUSTRALIAN INTERNSHIPS, Brisbane, Australia for making this great experience happening! Without their knowledge en professionalism I never ever would have experienced this amazing adventure! Thank you guys for everything and because of this placement I've been living for 6 months at one of the most beautiful places in the world!! I would never forget this......

What would you improve about this program?
I don't have any points which Australian Internships could change, but if there has to be something, I would recommend them to inform the student/client about the region where he/she is going to live.. What are the avarge living costs? what is there to do? Great places to visit in the area? Because we're still people from other countries who'll arrive in a country we don't know (like home).
Response from Australian Internships

Thank you for your positive feedback! Great to hear you had such an amazing experience!

The information on the destination (city) is provided with an orientation before the students arrival in Australia.

All the best for your future career!
