About Interning in Australia
Australia offers everything from world-class beaches to a bustling economy and cities that cater to businesses and industries from all over the world. Australia is known for being a land of opportunity for both business and leisure, and its residents benefit from the uniquely laid back lifestyle that sets it apart from other western nations. Interns who choose Australia have opportunities to pursue both their professional and personal goals, and will return home forever changed by this unique country.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.

I gained a stronger sense of independence. I have always been self-motivated and fairly independent, but this gave me the extra reassurance to take on new experiences.
