Amulya Ragam (BBA Intake of 2015) is currently pursuing an exciting internship opportunity with Vogue Australia. We caught up with Amulya to learn more about her unique internship story.
How did you find this internship opportunity?
I’ve always been interested in working in the fashion industry and I feel that most of the companies in this industry don’t really keep posting their internship offers online as they may not even have any. But if you show interest in their organisation by sharing how keen you are to work with them, they might give you an opportunity to get experience. That’s what I did as well. I emailed them myself, went down for an interview and got selected.
Could you tell us a bit about your job profile at Vogue Australia?
I’m working as a fashion assistant where my job is to assist the stylists in their everyday shoots. This includes marketing and PR work as well, where I get in touch with various brands and arrange clothes and accessories for shoots. I also use a software to bridge the photographs of all the products coming into the office, as the numbers are huge and proper documenting needs to be done. As an intern, I also get a chance to go work on shoots at different locations and understand the behind-the-scenes work.
How does your SP Jain experience help you with this internship?
Because I am a global student who has experiences study and life in three international cities, I always get to take my global experience to the organisation I’m working in and share my experiences with them along with enhancing those experiences with their culture.
What aspect of your internship are you enjoying the most?
I love everything about fashion and hence, love every aspect of it.
What is your advice for any future Jaguars considering an internship with Vogue?
My only advice would be that instead of just using websites like Seek and Indeed for internships, if there is any dream company of yours where you would want to work, you can always email them (find their email address online) and tell them that you are interested in working with them. Don’t forget to explain why an opportunity with them excites you. If they really want to have you, then they will definitely revert back. If not, they’ll always remember your interest and will contact you in the future if anything comes up.
