Kate's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Desert Oak & Associates consulting firm which works with boards, CEOs, and senior leaders.

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   In order to gain international exposure and awareness.  I am also looking forward to the chance to work and learn overseas.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I hope I can offer my own insights back to the place I am working.  I hope I can help them out by applying my academic background to assist the teams with their work.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn the industry and how it works.  I have little experience thus far so I am excited to learn as much as I possibly can.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   Cairns and Melbourne. I will be travelling extensively around Sydney.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  The experience in the finance area and the extensive travelling.
