I hope to provide a fresh, new, and exciting attitude to my internship site. I want my manager or supervisor to feel like they can count me to fulfill my daily duties.
What do you hope to learn on your internship?
I look forward to learning about Australia's business environment and work atmosphere. I hope to learn new tactics and strategies in the business world that I can take and use in the future for my career.
Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under?"
I plan on traveling throughout Sydney and also visiting Canes.
What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under?"
I don't expect one specific experience to highlight my trip to Australia. I'm expecting for the entire trip to be an incredible experience and one that I will remember for the rest of my life.
I am extremely excited for this experience and have been for over a year. I can't wait to find out what internship I will have for this experience and look forward to making the best out of every moment.
