Jordan's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Macquarie University- U@MQ Limited as a business/sports management intern

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am participating in the program because I thought it was a great opportunity to gain practical experience in the business industry in the wonderful city of Sydney.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I hope to add leadership skills, a positive attitude, a strong work ethic, and determination.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I plan to observe the differences in office culture and customs of the Australian workplace as well as apply my experience to my future career.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   Melbourne, Great Barrier Reef, New Zealand, and Blue Mountains.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  Exploring Sydney and everything it has to offer will be the highlight.
