What is an Internship?
An internship is a period where students, recent graduates and new migrants transition from study or overseas work experience to the working life in Australia. It is an opportunity to be exposed to the Australian work environment and be trained in the workplace under the guidance of a knowledgeable professional or a team. Internships are sometimes a part of degree programs and are required by some universities to graduate.
Internships are often temporary and for a fixed period which is decided by the participating intern within a specific industry that is closely related to their field of study.
What is the Importance of doing an Internship or Getting an Australian Work Experience?
The Australian job market is getting more competitive.
If you are a student, new graduate or recent migrant in Australia, it will be difficult to convince employers to employ you. With the dawn of the internet, employers now have access to hundreds of other applicants who similar or better qualifications and may also have valuable local work experience.
Undergoing an internship program demonstrates to prospective employers that you have already honed your communication skills, are well-adjusted to the Australian workplace culture, and have developed the essential soft skills necessary in the workplace. Additionally, many employers consider the internship program as a provisional stage towards recruiting and hiring.
Internships will increase your employability, boost your confidence and is a massive step towards reaching your career goals.
