Great experience

10/10

During the time that I stayed in Australia, it was awesome to learn about working in an office and get new skills, such as interpersonal relationship, marketing and business, and improve my field, IT.

I'd like to read the company's profile before. Usually, they first talk to the company, then to the intern. I believe that we should say if we are willing to go to the company before.

People from Australian Internships should open more offices along Australia, so a higher number of interns can be involved in the activities they make that at the moment only happen in big cities like Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

First Industry Experience

7/10

Australian Internships provided me with my first professional experience in the industry, which is of great importance to my field of study. I could take part in the day-by-day of the operations office of a packaging company and learn a great deal of it with everybody in there, besides the experience of a foreign culture, because I am Brazilian, and having the opportunity to experience the Australian working model was an add-up to my resumé.

An unexpected task

10/10

I am an animal science student from Brazil. The internship arranged for me was in an Australian zoo. Although I had taken an English course before starting the internship, when I first started I was completely lost with the language. After a few weeks working at the zoo every day, I found myself gaining a little more confidence to talk, and I could finally understand Australian slang (at least most of it).

After working a month at the zoo, most of the staff already knew me, and I felt they were starting to lack new tasks for me. One day, among 15 Australian interns, I was called to guide a blind man through the zoo. That day, I saw that my range of vocabulary was terrible. I have asked the blind guy, like a hundred time, if he had already SEEN that or this animal. I could not find a word to substitute the verb to SEE.

Luckily, the guy was completely good tempered. He just laugh at me, and answered that he would love me to take him to hear or to pet the animals. At the end of the day, obviously, I apologized for all the misunderstanding, but he said that was totally ok, that I was such a good guide, and he understood I was a foreign, not yet fluent.

The zookeeper who I was working with that day laugh at me too, and I told her. Although frustrating, the experience was really good for me. I wasn’t used to work with PEOPLE. After that day, I felt I was ready for anything.

How can this program be improved?

Althoug the internship fit perfectly for me, I have heard a few friends complaining about how they hated the tasks they were asked to, or how they couldn`t see the relation between the internship arranged and their majors at uni.
Maybe Australian internship should bring us more options of internship for us too choose among them. We were told that we have to accept the first offer we got. For me, that worked. For other people, it didn`t.
