"I attended the corporate internship program in the spring 2017/2018 semester and regard this program as quite valuable as it provided me the opportunity to get associated with a local working environment. Before commencing my study in the University of Tasmania, I had worked in China for several years in the field of business advisory. To the best of my knowledge, cultural differences, especially varied business cultures and mindsets, are the most important factors to concern for expanding overseas work experience. I am very delighted to take this opportunity to apply what I have learnt in school to the real working practices and enhance my English skills though day-to-day communications. In addition, given that the main role of my internship was assisting the Hobart City Council incorporating the new edition of the investors prospectus for the City of Hobart, I have gained a great sense of achievement through this program for taking my own part to contribute to the city’s economic development!"

"The Corporate Internship Program I attended in spring 2017/2018 was one of the most fulfilling experience in my two years’ study in UTAS. I worked on a project assisting a not-for-profit organisation to investigate and solve a taxation-related issue. The internship provided me an opportunity to work in a new field I had never touched before, which expanded my vision and was useful to pave my career path after graduation. Although I had two years of working experience in China, I still highly valued what I have learnt from the Corporate Internship Program. Thirteen weeks’ internship enabled me not only to apply the theoretical knowledge to a real business scenario but also to enhance my communication skills in a real workplace, which is vital for international students to associate themselves in the local business culture after graduation."

"I was tasked with assisting in the planning, marketing, and delivery of several fundraising events throughout the course of the semester. This provided me with so many rewarding experiences, learning opportunities, and an insight into the corporate world and all of its challenges. The Corporate Internship Programme has acted as a pathway for me to gain valuable work experience before finishing my degree that I might otherwise not have sought out, and I am immensely grateful for the opportunity."
