What kind of internships are there?

Individual Internships

An individual internship allows you to work directly with an organisation. You will receive a specified internship supervisor who is an employee at the organisation who will work with you to complete the components outlined within your Internship Training Plan.

This training plan will outline the tasks and responsibilities you will have during your internship and is a great indication of the things you’re going to learn.

Group Internships

Group internships are awesome for students who may not be super confident to complete an individual internship.
We will put you into small groups and provide you with a qualified mentor from your industry.

You will work within the team with constant support by the mentor to action the required work outlined in the Internship Training Plan.

Your Internship MatchMaker will advise you if they think a group internship is appropriate for you.

On-Site Internships

An On-site internship means that you will actually attend the workplace of your selected organisation and work directly with your supervisor and team members from their office.

Receiving an onsite internship will depend on the current COVID-19 situation and depend on the companies comfort around having an open office.
While we cannot guarantee an on-site internship, you can request one via your InternMatch MatchMaker and they will do their best to comply with your requst.

Remote Internships

COVID has quickly turned most work environments into an online workforce and interning remotely is a perfect solution to being able to receive a real world experience in the same way most of us are working.

We will provide you and your host company with best practise instructions as to how to run a remote internship including daily zoom meetings, regular checkin’s and a whole new world of business communication software including Slack, Teams and other online team collaboration software.

Each participant will have a 20-min consultation session with their Internship MatchMaker. They will ask you your preferences for internship and ensure they find an internship that is both perfect and works for you!

  • The Work Readiness Online Course – Takes approximately 5 hours to complete but is at your own pace
