Hear how Communication graduate Lyle Fielmich’s internships led to job offers before he graduated and an enviable career with the World Surf League, travelling to some of the best surfing beaches in the world.
Carla Westwood never wanted a regular 9–5 desk job. During her studies Carla was offered an internship with the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) allowing her to travel throughout Australia and New Zealand as part of the ANZSOG listening tour. ‘The aim of the listening tours was to listen to the voices of public servants and ANZSOG past and present alumni to better integrate their curriculum to include indigenous peoples,’ she said. ‘My role was to film, edit and interview participants of the various listening tours and to capture the various conversations being had.’ Carla’s work for the listening tours was published online on ANZSOG’s media platforms. After graduating Carla was offered a paid position as a broadcast assistant with NEP at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. ‘Many of my friends have also started working towards their dream job which started with internships through Griffith.’
