Students & Graduates

What is an internship?

An internship is the opportunity to gain experience in the Australian workforce and to dramatically increase your employability potential.

What is an internship?

The internship program includes a 12 week (generally) work placement where you will be able to use your skills in the workforce. This work is on a full-time or part-time basis and can be flexible to suit your availability.

Why do an internship?

Internships are the best way to expose you to Australian workplaces and workplace culture. University gives you skills and knowledge, but does not give you the opportunity to use these in reality. Internships give you practical experience and can often lead to secure employment.

The reality is that most businesses want to hire people who already have some sort of professional experience. So the challenge is how to get that first opportunity. Well, internships are the perfect way for your to gain that first crucial stint in your profession that will improve your employability potential dramatically. This is includes the high number of interns that end up in full time positions with their internship host company.
