Success Stories

With no local experience, I experienced a lot of pushback from companies. I spoke to Naren who advised me on changing my strategy. I took up his program and I'm glad I did. Professional, kind and he knows how to coach. I got my first job in 10 weeks.”

Seir

APAC SALES DIRECTOR
Thanks to Career Success Australia I got into a good IT internship with a growing finance and tech firm in the city. I worked hard and got offered an FT job as a BA. Thanks Naren and team for helping me!

Ayantha

BUSINESS ANALYST / MELBOURNE
Career Success Australia helped me find a wonderful internship at a major finance company in Sydney. I worked with senior finance staff and am pleased to say they offered to keep me for an extra 3 months on contract. This wouldn’t have been possible without the extraordinary effort by the Career Success Australia team.

Stanley

FINANCE OFFICER
I tried for many months on my own to get interviews and a more senior job. I had one interview after so many applications. Even with Australian experience, I found it tough. The Career Success Australia team turned my situation around. They helped me with every aspect from resume to cover letter and LinkedIn. I did well in my last interview and they offered me the job which I have been in for 3 months now.

Australian Internships Advice & Career Tips

Australian Internships – FAQs

Everything you need to know about Internships in Australia!

Some internships in Australia are paid, but many are unpaid. We do however find that some companies are more than happy to provide an Internship allowance. The internships that Career Success Australia organise aim to secure a travel and meals allowance for you. About 70% of Career Success Australia’s interns receive a weekly allowance ($150-$200) for travel and meals. 
 
The whole purpose of you doing an internship in Australia is to get local experience and a reference from the host company. Without industry experience (which you get from doing an internship), it’s very difficult to get a job. An internship in Australia (even unpaid) will help you to compete against the other 100+ applicants who already have industry experience. 
  
While we try to arrange a small stipend to cover meals/travel, internships in Australia are generally unpaid. The main benefit is gaining valuable industry experience and a reference from your supervisor. 

Some companies provide the allowance – others don’t. The main benefit of doing an Internship in Australia (paid or unpaid) is to get your foot in the door which could lead to a full-time job. 

We advise to check with your migration agent first. However because an internship is not employment, there’s more flexibility to undertake a 12-week full time internship.

Internship rules and regulations constantly change so while this advice is true as of today, it may change tomorrow. So, always seek employment and internship advice from a registered migration agent.

We have placed a number of international students on 485 post study work visas on internships. Many of these students have been offered full time jobs after their internship too. It’s difficult – but not impossible.

Good quality internships in Australia can take 4-16+ weeks to source. The time varies depending on your field of interest, your level of experience, the city/cities of preference, and even the time of year. For example, getting an internship in Australia in December/July takes more time as does an internship in an area like Biomedical Engineering (as there aren’t as many companies in this area compared to Accounting firms).

Many hiring managers in Australia look for experience first and foremost. Nowadays, having a Bachelor or Master degree from an Australian university is simply not enough. There are literally thousands of graduates with engineering, IT and accounting degrees – so an internship is becoming a key requirement.

An internship that gives you practical hands-on experience in your industry is crucial and will set you apart all of the other graduates you’re competing with who also have a degree.

Many of our interns are hired either full time or part time after their internship, while others continue on with a part-time internship while job searching.

We recommend that you update your resume after 8 weeks at your internship, to include your new responsibilities/skills/experience and new referees.

It’s easier to get hired while you are still working in your field (either paid or unpaid), so you’ll want to begin your job search before you complete your internship.

The worst case is that you don’t find a job within six months of completing your internship. You won’t have current experience, and you may need to do another internship! However, you should avoid doing back-to-back internships.

To help you secure a job after your internship, we will help you avoid doing one internship after another. Doing more than one internship in a year is not effective, so the goal is to use your recent internship experience to get your next job.

Some of our interns prefer to job search on their own, while others enrol in our Career Coaching Program to get one-on-one support to get job interviews and offers.

We offer a comprehensive package that includes:
– a new resume and cover letter
– 100 customised job applications
– referrals to companies in our network who are looking for people with your skills/experience
– interview training
– LinkedIn optimisation and training to find jobs in the hidden job market

Most of our clients who completed their internship and then went on to career coaching successfully landed jobs within 3 months.

Yes, definitely. We provide our Interns with a list of technical skills to brush up on before they commence their internship.

A number of graduates we’re working with at the moment who are practicing skills in AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Google Analytics, HR processes and XERO accounting software.

While they are refreshing their skills, we are working on their CV and preparing them for internship interviews.

Also, while you’re brushing up on your skills we’ll be working on your resume and talking to companies on your behalf.

You can choose to complete your Internship in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart, Perth, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin.

We work with host companies all around Australia and can help organise your internship in your current city, or we can help you secure your Internship interstate.

We offer internships for students and graduates in a range of areas, such as Accounting and Finance, IT, Engineering, Marketing, HR, Biomedical Science, UI/UX, and Data Analytics.

If you are looking for an Internship in a specific area, please get in touch and we can help.
