Virtual Industry Project Internship Program

With the uncertain economic conditions and closure of physical office spaces due to social distancing restrictions, many employers are hesitant to commit to internship placements at a time when their business is rapidly changing to adapt to the crisis. In response to these exceptional circumstances, we remain committed to helping you engage with employers in safe and valuable work-integrated learning opportunities. As an alternative to traditional in-company internship, we are offering the opportunity to engage in project-based virtual internships provided by our network of host companies.

We encourage you to take part in our Virtual Industry Project Internship Program from the comfort of your home using collaboration platforms such as Zoom and Slack. You will have access to “always on” video or chat meeting room on Skype to encourage questions and interaction.

The internship will run for 12 weeks, after which you may be considered for employment by the host company. In absence of job offer, you will get a glowing reference from your supervisor and certificate of work experience from STUDYANDWORK.

Paid or Unpaid
Virtual internships are unpaid training opportunities, but some host companies can pay a prize money upon achievement of project objectives.

Academic Credit
You can utilise the internship to claim academic credits for your university degree or simply do it for your professional development.

Our Virtual Industry Project Internship Program cost $990+GST which you pay only when you accept the internship offer after successful interview with host company. The fee is for finding a suitable host company, organising internship agreement, training plan and managing placement as per Fair Work Ombudsman’s guidelines for internship. If you are unable to afford our fees, we also have internship opportunities at free of cost but you have to compete with other interns for placement.
