Completing my internship at Adoni has been an important part of my professional growth and development and I have loved every moment.
I had completed a Bachelor of Communication/Arts from the University of Queensland in 2016, and after my graduation I started working as a travel agent. After a year in this role I was itching to get back to my passion for communications and public relations.
I had previously interned at Brisbane City Council, but the first step after leaving my role as a travel agent was to gain an internship at Adoni to get some hands-on practical experience.
This was my first experience working in a traditional public relations agency and it’s been fantastic to work on a diverse group of clients and industries.
Working with the team at Adoni has been fantastic, and I have received guidance and support throughout my internship. Adoni has been a positive and supportive environment from the beginning and this helped me feel part of the team.
Through my internship I have written media releases, articles and blogs, found industry and local publications and contacts, identified stories, attended a media call and even found some memes! I have been able to practice the skills that I learnt at university and apply them to the ‘real world’.
The communications and public relations industry can be difficult to enter, but I have found that internships and work experience are the key to that first graduate role.
I have enjoyed my time at Adoni, and I have now been offered my first communications role in social media.
