Student testimonial


While I felt nervous entering my global internship, the Asia Ready Program gave me greater confidence, awareness and the skills I need to succeed in this experience.  I feel more prepared to take on my internship now that I understand the cultural dynamics, regional environment and have insight into the local language.  Hearing from previous students in the program and professionals in the region, and understanding the program expectations, resources and support has given me a comprehensive guide of how I should expect to navigate and conduct myself throughout.  I found the language training and diverse speakers a really unique and powerful addition to the program which I got a lot of benefit from.  Now that I have commenced my placement with AustCham Hong Kong, I have been largely immersed into the organisation and the Hong Kong business environment.  The preparation and orientation before commencement really helped me find my footing.  I have enjoyed working with AustCham and have found many opportunities to learn and enhance my skills as I navigate the remote internship.

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) Global Mobility Internship has provided me with the opportunity to explore cultural awareness within an international workplace setting.By doing so, I have been able to develop primary cross cultural communicative tactics, whilst learning how to better conform to international workplace ideologies.

This internship has positioned me strongly to attain workplace employment upon graduation, as I developed various skill sets pertinent to industry practice in my time with Allive Creative.

Additionally, I have been given the chance to employ certain frameworks learnt in a theoretical capacity into a practical context. I would highly recommend this internship to any student interested in working in global business environments. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I hope it provides the same experiences for future NCP mobility students.

Industry testimonial

Shannon Casey was an excellent intern and the Amartha Micro Fintech team was consistently impressed with the quality of her work.

Throughout the internship, Shannon displayed a high level of professionalism and motivation. She has a great attitude and completed all tasks in a timely and efficient manner. Shannon is a fast learner, keen to explore new things and quickly adapts to change. She was very helpful, asked questions to clarify her understanding and to meet expectations, and always went above and beyond to produce great outcomes. She also had the opportunity to present her outputs directly to the CEO of Amartha, Mr Andi Taufan Garuda Putra. He thanked her personally for the assistance she provided throughout her placement and hoped that the learning she gained during her internship at Amartha will be useful for her in the future. Based on our positive experience with Shannon, we are very interested to host a further Griffith intern in the future.

Thank you for the opportunity.
