A few weeks ago I finished my internship with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018). For those considering applying, do it. Whether you think you’ll get it or not, just try because you never know!
As soon as I realised Griffith would be the main partner for this event, I was extremely excited and I had my heart set on an internship. I applied a few times for a position with them, even before I had arrived in Australia.
I was persistent, and I finally got the call for an interview, and a couple of days after that interview, I found out I would be starting the upcoming Monday as a Communications and Engagement Intern. Though all disciplines under GOLDOC (Gold Coast 2018 Games Corporation) are great, I definitely lucked in with the team I worked with.
