An alternative winter: Aurora Project Native Title Internship
National Native Title Council (NNTC)
I have always been interested in the rights and affairs of marginalised groups in developing and developed countries and through my course in Development Studies I took an interest in the complex field of native title within the country.
As a penultimate year Commerce student it is almost impossible to ignore the general hype around finding ‘vac work’. It’s a key step in your career progression and the competition is cutthroat. But what if the ‘Big Four’ and the other usual suspects don’t entice?
This summer, I decided to flee the Brisbane heat and head down to Melbourne to complete a 6-week internship with the NNTC (National Native Title Council) as part of the Aurora Internship Program.
Commencing my final semester at university was made all the more exciting by my acceptance into the Aurora Internship Program.
I began my Aurora internship a month or so after I finished my Bachelor of Arts (Melbourne University) majoring in Sociology, and politics.
