Networking for Elite Athletes
Bachelor of Public Relations and Communication
"Making plans for life after sport can be a daunting experience without the right support. During my time at university managing sporting commitments as well, I've always had the support and services of the Griffith Sport College to help me with assessment and timetabling management. Now coming to the end of my degree the college extended their support with aligning an internship relevant to my career aspirations.
As many who have been through the university experience would know, the right internship can be an invaluable piece of experience for entering the workforce. I had the pleasure of working with the team at Boardcave in content and communications for the past seven weeks where i learnt the ins and outs of the industry and put the learnt knowledge from my degree to use."
