Student testimonial

Having the opportunity to intern in Jakarta, Indonesia was the most eye-opening and valuable experience to kick start my career. This country had so much to offer culturally and allowed me to gain a different perspective and understanding to the world around me. Through experiencing diverse situations and navigating a new city as an ‘expat’ I was able to develop various skills that have not only developed my confidence, but taught me many transferable skills. The full-time internship gave me an insight as to what life as a HR professional would entail. I was able to gain hands on experience that has truly helped me to gain employment as a graduate. An internship is the most valuable experience you can undertake for yourself, not only professionally but also personally. I can’t recommend the Global Mobility Internship Program highly enough to students. Participating will be the best decision you make.

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.
