I took part in an internship placement as a law clerk, assisting solicitors with day-to-day management of their cases. This was an eye-opening experience for me, as I got to see first-hand what it takes to be a successful legal professional. It greatly improved my self-confidence and my wonderfully supportive team empowered me to contribute my ideas.
From day one I started to engage in industry and in my final year I received a scholarship to intern for the NZ Taxpayers’ Union in Wellington, New Zealand.
I worked as an ambulance officer full-time during my second and third year at Curtin. By the end of my degree I was more than job-ready as I already had hundreds of hours of experience.
My internship showed me the real world of marketing. It was rewarding to arrange promotions using techniques I had learned in university. The best part was being offered a job at the end of my placement.
