Thomas Egger (Landcorp)

Between the 2nd and 6th of July I was lucky enough to spend a week interning at LandCorp. I was assigned to the Regional North team and was exposed to the wide variety of the projects they are currently working on through talking to each of the project managers, attending meetings and going out on site. The team, led by Paul Ferrante were very welcoming and helpful in terms of getting me involved and taking the time to explain things to me (e.g. concepts of property, meeting objectives) in a way that made sense. This was very important to me as I have not yet commenced my property studies at university, so my technical knowledge is fairly limited. All the explanations, therefore, made the week much more beneficial and enjoyable as I got a better sense of what the job is really about and that is what I was most wanting to take away from the experience. This was furthered by talking to team members on more casual topics such as their career paths and what their day-to-day looks like. There were certain people I spent time with that I will definitely keep contact with into the future as they offered to assist and advise me with university and beyond. All in all, it was a very positive experience that surpassed my expectations and I would definitely recommend future internship placements at LandCorp.
