A new approach to industry experience: remote placements during COVID-19 lockdown

Academic staff at La Trobe University asked two 2020 graduates six questions about their remote placement experience during Victoria’s second coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) lockdown. Tran Nguyen completed her placement with the Monash University School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine (SPHPM) and Rebecca Tran was placed at the Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI). Two vastly different organisations, but with many shared experiences, challenges, and triumphs for the students.
