Internship Outcomes

Experience

The degree is only part of the journey.

The experience of being involved in the Australian workforce is not something you can learn from books or research.

Networking

Work with experienced thinkers.

Businesses are more likely to hire someone based on a trusted recommendation from a friend or colleague. The hidden job market starts with a coffee or an internship.

 

Employment

Receive a return on investment from your education.

Let’s be honest – we get a good education so we can get a job. You are more likely to get employment after completing an internship.
