Celebrating Our Graduates - RMIT Interns

Celebrating Our Graduates - RMIT Interns

RMIT Student Communications has teamed up with the College of Design and Social Context to give students the opportunity to complete an internship as part of their degree.

The internship allows students the chance to work on real life campaigns, enhance their skills and work in an office environment to grasp what life after university is like. 

We recently caught up with our graduating RMIT students who had completed an Internship with RMIT.

Four graduating students, Jack, Jamima, Emman, and Khanya briefly talked about their respective internship experiences at RMIT. 

Jack Glasson

Bachelor of Communication (Public Relation) 

Jack: I completed an internship with the RMIT Communications team in the storyteller team at the end of my second year. My role in the communications team was to assist the team in creating content for the RMIT socials as well as writing articles for the student website"

What did you enjoy most about the internship?

Jack: What I enjoyed most about my internship was having the opportunity to work with other teams outside of the storyteller team which gave me insights into how an organisation of this scale runs.

It gave me insights into what my degree can lead to! There are so many options which made me very excited for my career.

Emman Noorazman

Bachelor of Communication (Media)

Emman: My role in the comms department was working with the Storyteller team as a communications intern. I did tasks such as filming and interviewing RMIT students and facilities, editing content, writing up articles, and communicating and collaborating with other members and stakeholders.

What was your favourite piece of work you produced during the internship?

Emman: I’m rather proud of the video I made about the RMIT Student Hardship Assistance Grants. When completing this work, I was happy with how it turned out both visually and informatively. It’s exciting to see how my skills and work has garnered a large engagement on RMIT’s social media channel.

Jamima Ahmad Yazit

Bachelor of Communication (Public Relation)

Jamima: I started out as an intern at the comms department during my final year of studying at RMIT.

There, I mostly worked with the Storyteller team where I got to go around campus and capture fun videos for RMIT’s social media for students and staff at RMIT. I also got to write stories about a few events and profiles after I expressed how I wanted to improve my writing skills.

What was your favourite piece of work you produced during the internship?

Jamima: This is the very first TikTok video I got to work on for the Comms department and one of my favourite works. I was very proud of it as it was one of my first official creative works and I got full creative freedom on the video. I also got to flash out my ‘amazing’ acting skills.

Khanya Sibeko 

Bachelor of Communication (Public Relation)

Khanya: I was lucky enough to land an internship with RMIT in the first semester of my final year.

My internship was in the Learning and Teaching space of the Student Experience communications team where I was able to work on a range of student campaigns such as academic integrity, International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating and an ePortfolio project.

What did you enjoy most about the internship?

Hands down the best aspect of the internship was how welcomed I was into the team and how everyone treated me as a team member, not an intern.

— Khanya Sibeko

Khanya: Prior to starting the internship, I didn't have much confidence in my abilities and, frankly, I was nervous I was not going to be capable of doing the work. 

Thankfully I had an amazing mentor who worked with me step by step, helping me in areas I didn't know and encouraging me to have faith in my skills in areas I did know.

Are you graduating from RMIT this year? Join us for a range of events and activities to celebrate your achievements and help you get prepared for what comes next.
