I've always had a passion for travel and wanted to work in another part of the world so when I saw the opportunity through Swinburne it was too good to pass up. At that time in my study, I hadn't had any experience working in an agency, only within companies so majority of my decision to apply stemmed from wanting to explore a new work place in a country I loved.
The main challenge I found was working full days when all I wanted to do was travel! I had never worked full time before so it was definitely a change for me but it also made the travel I did on the weekends so much more enjoyable because I really valued the time I had.
The highlight for me from this experience is the friends and connections I made. My agency was small and like a little family which made going to work everyday so enjoyable and made it an easier environment to learn and progress in.
My Internship reaffirmed for me that I was in the right industry and that Public Relations is the career path for me. I also discovered that working in an agency was the best fit for me as I loved the busyness and working on different clients at one time.
