FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Candidates participating in the Internship Program will not be paid. The internship is considered a vocational non-paid training period, which is the norm in Australia.
Unpaid internships are legal in Australia if they are part of a vocational placement as defined by the Fair Work Act 2009.
Please see the Fair Work Australia website for more information on the rules around work experience and internships.

An intern is considered unsuccessful in an interview if they receive a rejection from the host company.
While there is a positive track record for interns receiving permanent job offers at their host company (over 60%) and starting work within their field of study after the internship, the Internship Providers do not guarantee employment as part of the Program. The outcome depends on various factors, including the intern’s performance during the internship.
To increase the likelihood of receiving a job offer, it is advised to take proactive steps such as gaining comprehensive knowledge about the business and industry, working diligently, showcasing your abilities and skills, building professional networks, and continuously enhancing your knowledge and skills throughout your internship with the host company. These actions can significantly improve your chances of securing employment at the end of your internship.
If you are seeking an internship as part of your university course and need assistance, it’s important to have official university documents that outline the credit requirements for the internship. It is advisable to consult with your course advisor or the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) team at your university to understand the specific requirements for internship subjects, as they can vary between universities.

If you choose to voluntarily withdraw from the program and terminate the agreement with the Internship Provider, they will keep the non-refundable application fee. However, you may be eligible for a refund of the Program Fees before Program Activation, which refers to the point when the Internship Program Supervisor is assigned to you and the internship advice and/or program negotiation begins.
It is strongly advised that you carefully read the Terms and Conditions of the Program for further details.
If you have a genuine intention to renew your expiring visa, you are eligible to join the program. Similarly, if you are currently on a Bridging Visa, you can also commence the program.
No, participating in an internship will not count towards your weekly working hour limit. According to Australian Law, an internship is not classified as a job. Therefore, the hours worked during an internship are not subject to the restrictions imposed by the Student Visa in terms of working hour limitations, even if the restriction of 48 hours per fortnight is reinstated.
No, we do not directly deliver the Internship Program. We will connect you with our partners, who are the providers of the Internship Program. They will guide you through the process of initiating your internship.
Yes, part-time professional internships are available. It is possible to study and intern simultaneously. These opportunities are specifically designed for candidates who are already in Australia on a Student Visa. If you hold a different visa and are interested in participating in a part-time program, please reach out to us for more information.
Candidates are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week for a minimum duration of 12 weeks. The specific days and/or hours of work will be determined during the placement negotiation process. For further details, please contact us.
Yes, it is possible to do a virtual internship.
The Virtual Internship Program provides students and professionals with the opportunity to gain work experience within an Australian company, all in a remote professional setting. Throughout the program, interns are supervised by a mentor and actively engage in real projects assigned by the host company across various fields and industries.
A virtual internship offers a fantastic platform to kickstart your career, enhance your skills, actively participate in real projects, and receive mentorship from experienced professionals. The best part is that it offers flexibility in terms of working hours.

Having no prior experience in your field does not necessarily make you unattractive to a company for an internship.
Many companies understand that internships are a valuable opportunity for individuals or fresh graduates to gain practical experience and develop their skills. They often look for candidates who are enthusiastic, motivated, and willing to learn. While relevant experience can be beneficial, host companies also consider factors such as your academic background, transferable skills, and potential for growth. It is important to showcase your passion, willingness to learn, and commitment to making the most of the internship opportunity.
By highlighting your strengths and demonstrating a strong work ethic, you can still be a compelling candidate for an internship, even without prior experience in your field.
We do offer some paid internships; however, it is important to note that these opportunities are exceptional and are primarily available in the fields of Marketing, Human Resources, and Events Management.

If you have already secured employment by the time the internship begins, please be aware that a refund policy applies.
The non-refundable application fee cannot be refunded (refer to the Program Price List section above). Regarding program fees, the following conditions apply:
