Frequently asked questions

How do I find internships in Australia?

There are several ways to find internships in Australia. You can start by searching online job boards, career websites, and internship-specific platforms. Contact your university's career centre or attend career fairs where companies often recruit interns. Networking with professionals in your field can also lead to internship opportunities. Or: apply for a placement program with Readygrad, where we provide you with the placement and support you need.

When should I start looking for internships in Australia?

It's recommended to start searching for internships several months in advance, as the application process can take time. Many companies begin recruiting interns around 3-6 months before the desired internship start date. Starting early increases your chances of finding suitable opportunities. At Readygrad, it will take approximately 4-8 weeks to find you a placement.

Are there any specific visa requirements for international students doing internships in Australia?

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. It's important to check the Australian Department of Home Affairs website or consult with an immigration professional for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

 

What documents do I need to apply for internships in Australia?

The specific documents required may vary depending on the company or organization. Generally, you will need a well-crafted resume (CV), a cover letter expressing your interest in the internship, academic transcripts, and references. Some companies may also request a portfolio or samples of your work, especially for creative or technical roles.

Can internships in Australia lead to full-time job opportunities?

Yes, internships in Australia can lead to full-time job opportunities. Many companies use internships as a way to identify potential talent and offer permanent positions to outstanding interns. It's important to make a positive impression during your internship and showcase your skills and work ethic to increase your chances of being considered for a full-time role.
