How to find an internship in finance?

Yes, international students need an appropriate visa to undertake an internship in Australia. The most common visa for this purpose is the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) for recent graduates. However, the specific visa requirements can vary depending on factors such as the internship duration, the student's current visa status, and the sponsoring company.

Start by thoroughly researching the company and its culture to understand better what they expect from interns. Reading up on recent financial developments can also help you stay informed and knowledgeable during your internship. Brush up on your technical skills, such as Excel, and consider taking a finance course if you need to refresh your knowledge.

Are internships paid in Australia?

If you're considering pursuing a finance internship in Australia, knowing whether these opportunities are paid is essential. While no specific laws require companies to pay interns, the Fair Work Act sets out minimum wage standards for most Australian workers. This means that if an intern performs work that an employee would otherwise do, they should receive payment. It's ultimately up to the employer to decide whether or not they will pay their interns. Still, researching and asking about compensation during the application process is always worth it.

At Readygrad, our unpaid internships are carefully crafted to offer hands-on training in an authentic work setting. Although you won't be classified as an employee, you'll have the chance to acquire valuable skills and practical knowledge. We go the extra mile to ensure that your internship is impactful and fair, with the host company dedicated to investing their time and resources in providing you with a valuable learning experience.
