My name is Brandon McConnell. I'm currently in my fourth year of a Bachelor of Commerce doing a double major in Finance and Accounting. And at the end of 2021, during summer, I completed a three and a half month virtual internship with a Korean fashion and design company.
Yeah. So for me, I sort of wanted to diversify my experience. I obviously know that the graduate job market is very, very competitive and I think that just narrowing your, your options to a domestic internship opportunity, although it's great, I think that opportunities looking overseas and getting some experience in, as I mentioned earlier, you know, overseas operating environment, I don't think you can replicate that with with a domestic internship experience.
And I think that being able to have that understanding of how another country's operating environment works or some of the different market market conditions that they might experience, I don't think you can replicate that. And I think a lot of companies have a global footprint now. And for myself, looking at graduate employment opportunities, a lot of the companies have that global footprint and being able to sort of go into that role with that experience already puts you ahead of the crowd by by a mile.
