Chris Chesky (Mirrabooka SC)

My time with the JLL team at Mirrabooka Square shopping centre was extraordinary and exceeded my expectations tenfold.

I was given first-hand experience in all the areas that make a shopping centre run successfully, including managing tenancies, lease administration, marketing and promotions, operations and strategic planning.

The opportunities that lie amidst the retail and property sectors are profound and something overlooked by many (myself included prior to the internship). There is so much that goes into running a centre that you cannot learn at university.

Not only was I made to feel a part of the team, I was tasked with real responsibilities and learned so much in such a short period of time. I would like to thank Rowena Ong, Allana Edwards and all her team for providing me with this fantastic experience that I will not forget.
