A PaperCutty pandemic internship

2020 was supposed to be just another year of Swinburne University Professional Placements.

It’s tricky enough balancing full-time placement and study, but add a pandemic on top of that? Yeesh.

Despite the obvious pangs for office life, PaperCutter interns have had their expectations met and then some.

Working as an intern in a pandemic

When I started as an RMIT intern at PaperCut I never would have guessed my tiny studio apartment would also be my workplace.

But for a long time just finding an internship as an international student was a fulltime job in itself.

Despite the pandemic, I’m actually learning more than what I expected when coming to PaperCut.
