I worked with the Deakin Faculty of Arts and Education for my internship from July to November 2008. I assisted with events management. I helped with managing Deakin Week which ran from 13- -17 October 2008. Deakin Week is when Deakin gets to showcase its partnerships that it shares with key industries and the Faculty had events running during that week. The events were free for anyone and they helped to raise Deakinís profile.
The internship provided me with the unique opportunity to apply the theory into the practical. The workplace allowed me to utilise my communication and organisational skills and also gave me the opportunity to learn more. The environment was also nurturing and relaxed and it made my experience worthwhile. It was an invaluable experience that I recommend to anyone interested in gaining practical experience in the workplace.
