If you’d like to graduate from The University of Queensland with a degree that includes magic, movies and memories, then consider living and working at Walt Disney World in the USA.
UQ students have the opportunity to do just that as part of the Disney Cultural Exchange program in 2015.
It’s an opportunity sprinkled with fairy dust but the six-month, paid internship will give students access to global authorities in leadership, business skills and providing guest services.
The internship is at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, and interns will meet hundreds of students from across the world staying in the Disney apartment communities.
UQ business alumnus Jessica Walker took part in the program in 2012 and she now works as event sales coordinator at Hilton Brisbane.
Ms Walker said the program was a life-changing experience.
“Working with and learning from the world’s leading entertainment provider is work experience on a whole new level,” she said.
“It was an incredible experience to have access to high-quality learning institutes such as Disney University, with its extensive on-the-job training.
“They also ensure that you are well equipped and supported in your position from day one.”
Disney recruiters will be at St Lucia on 1 September for presentations at 12pm and 4pm. Interviews for the January 2015 intake will be held on 2 September.
Internships are open to UQ students and recent graduates from all study areas who are Australian or New Zealand citizens aged over 18.
