Brennan's pre-trip thoughts
Internship: Care Pharmaceuticals
Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program? I am participating in the program because past Australian interns had nothing but praise for the trip. I am happy to leave the Midwest winter for the Sydney summer.
What value do you hope to add back to the internship site? I am very organized, detail oriented person and hope to contribute to as many departments as possible, including events, finance, sales, and marketing.
What do you hope to learn on your internship? I hope to gain better one-on-one skills with people and learn of intercultural differences in the Australian workplace.
Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"? A group of us plan to travel to the Great Barrier Reef during Spring Break.
What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"? I think the highlight of Australia will be when we first get off the plane and reality sets in; we are really in Australia for two months!
Other comments. With 68 Augustana students going, there will never be a chance to sit down and relax. . . which is not a bad thing by any means.
