Why internships are so important

Employability takes more than just theoretical knowledge of an industry. Now, more than ever, employers are looking for candidates that have networking skills, a strong personal brand and, most importantly, industry work experience in Australia.

Industry research shows that over 30% of students who complete an internship program are offered paid employment with their host company.

Further, up to 90% receive job offers within 6 months of completing their internship after engaging in valuable networking opportunities and professional referrals.

Types of Internships

On-Site Internships

The traditional internship experience allows the student to work under the supervision of a staff member and complete various tasks assigned to them throughout the internship. These are the most dynamic work experiences and allow the organisation flexibility when allocating tasks and resources. Our host organisations have the option to take one or more interns at any time.

Remote Internships

The same as a traditional office-based internship, however students intern from their own home! As companies are increasingly moving towards flexible working arrangements, remote work is a valuable experience for students and graduates. We’ve developed a best practice internship from home guide to help support business to effectively manage an intern who is based at home.
