Australian Internships, an agency we partner with to provide co-op placements for our students, offers year-round co-ops throughout Australia. Typical placements are in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Australian Internships has been providing students with international experiences for more than a decade throughout Australia. It was established in 1998 as a specialist organization dedicated to arranging internships for young professionals seeking international experience in their academic field.
Job Description and Required Skills
Job Title/Description: The specific position will be identified after an interview with Australian Internships (via Skype or phone) whereby students will discuss their interests and skills and the types of positions they would like to consider. If, after the interview screening, the International Team extends an acceptance, job placement is guaranteed. However, students will not know the exact city, the name of the company, the job title or exact responsibilities until just prior to starting work. The agency will arrange interviews once a student is committed to the program, and it takes three to four months for them to secure the student's position.
