Case Study:

Mengyuan Zhong has sucessfully been involved in an internship program with Gulf Marina while studying her Masters of Wine Business. Mengyuan worked by utilising her marketing skills to reach the Chinese market. She was active in posting through her official account on the wechat, document translation and treating and liaising with Chinese visitors and investors. For her posts on the wechat, she was required to write articles and do coverage on scenery and entertainment activities in the Marina Hindmarsh Island (TMHM), several competitions in the TMHI, editing and posting videos. She has translated documents such as promotional information, property information, several brochures and menus. In addition, she also came up with itineraries and some long-term marketing plans.
The most valued aspect of this internship for Mengyuan was gaining work experience in Australia which will be beneficial for seeking employment in the future. Along side of this, it not only improved her communication skills, but also widened her social network. She found everyone within her workplace was treated equally and easy-going.
