Real work experience at Typo


We had presentations to do with Typo.
Our teacher had a connection with them. So we did those and they really
liked us and offered us internships. We did about three and a half weeks and
we worked about four or five days a week. A typical day at Typo it’s always
different. Yeah every day is different. But mostly we go into the mock shop. The mock shop is a large store. It’s at the head office, it’s fake obviously. It’s got all the walls, fixtures, all the bays and we put new products onto the shelves
and try and work out how it will fit together nicely. And take photos of that to
put into documents. And then they get sent out to the stores. From the experience at Typo, I’ve learnt really
valuable skills that i’ll be able to
take into the workforce. I was lucky enough to be offered a job which is really cool, because
I wouldn’t have had that opportunity without the course. Being able to walk straight into a job
is the most incredible thing. I don’t have to worry at all,
so it made it all worthwhile. I would definitely recommend
Swinburne to future students. Definitely prepare you for your
career in visual merchandising. I feel capable now and
I’m only half way through. I recommend this course to
almost everybody I meet. Whoever asks me about it,
I speak so highly of it. I think dive in and really
take advantage of it. If you apply yourself and
put in the effort, you’ll get so many opportunities
coming your way. I’m Georgia,
and I’m Jade and we’re studying the diploma of visual merchandising
at Swinburne.
