Kurt's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Max Australia/Spectrum Communications as public relations intern

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   This program is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience a new culture. The internship will give me a new, global perspective on the business environment.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I hope to add my knowledge of how to build and implement a marketing campaign. I can contribute new and fresh ideas to the organization.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn and understand the Australian media environment. Also the internship can help me further develop my skills I have learned in my courses at Augustana.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I plan on traveling to all of the hot spots in Sydney as well as going to the Great Barrier Reed, Gold Coast, and New Zealand.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  I anticipate extensive travel while experiencing a new culture to be the highlight of the trip.
