The Work Integrated Learning program provides students with opportunities to integrate academic learning with workplace experience. Monash currently work with over 400+ organisations across various industries and have always been great to work with in making the process of hosting their students as seamless as possible.
When it comes to my goals in the internship program, I aim to learn more about the defence sector and the people working within it (specifically their experiences and goals). It is a sector that I am considering pursuing further studies in as it greatly interests me - which is why I was so happy to have the opportunity to intern with ADA.
Georgia - I heard about ADA through the WIL program at Monash University, and was intrigued to learn more about SME's and the Australian defence industry, and how organisations such as ADA assist in supporting and integrating these businesses into the industry. As a public policy student, I am excited to work alongside experienced professionals to assist in ensuring that ADA's SME's are provided with the best avenue into the defence industry through policy review, media communications and liaising with different stakeholders and bodies. Overall, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the needs of SME's and how policy can best support them.
