I am so glad I decided to do an internship through a program instead of finding everything on my own. Though it seems expensive, you have to keep in mind how expensive things Sydney cost. GE gives you the opportunity to get to know people in the program from all over the world and share in this experience with them.

GE staff are very helpful in the preparations for the trip and were always there to answer questions and give advice.

How can this program be improved?
One thing I would suggest for future programs is to give options for the social events. Not everyone would be interested in the same activities but in some ways would feel obligated to participate because the events were already paid for.

Yes, I recommend this program

Time of My Life!

I can not say enough good things about my experience in Sydney. I participated in the internship program in the summer of 2011, between my Sophomore and Junior year at IU. After completing a phone interview and preparing a mock public relations campaign, I was placed with a PR firm in Surry Hills. I was nervous about the position, because the firm was so small, but I soon found out that its' size was in no way indicative of what they were capable of. My coworkers were so fun and comfortable to be around, and they made me feel that my input was not only welcome, but really valued. I learned so much about how the PR industry works, and often draw from that experience with my schoolwork and in my career search.

Another aspect I really liked about this program was the size of it. It was a smaller program (I think about 30 kids?), so we were able to get to know everyone on some level, and everyone got along really well. It was big enough, however, that it included people from all over the world, with all different types of interests.

How can this program be improved?
I really wish I had stayed longer, and traveled more while I was there. Also (and this is really more of a reflection on the city, not the program), everything is expensive. I mean everything. Don't plan on doing a ton of shopping, bring all your toiletries, and learn how to cook for yourself.

Amazing experience!

I enrolled in this program for summer 2012 and had the most incredible experience. The communication was great and received my placement shortly after being accepted into the program. The accommodation was in a nice area and support staff helped me out whenever I needed anything. I really enjoyed my job and gained a lot of real world experience in the marketing field. I highly recommend this program for a truly life changing experience, plus it's a good resume booster.
