internships

Bachelor of Commerce students, Yan Liu and Emma Swannie recently completed internships over summer, the latter in Melbourne, and Liu in Shanghai. They share what it was like to get a taste of the working world.

Anne Lao, Master of Management (Accounting) student, has returned from a Summer internship at EY in Singapore, clearer than ever before about pursuing auditing as a career. She shares her Southeast Asian experience here.

Overview

The Faculty of Business and Economics can help organisations develop and facilitate paid internships for students.

Internship opportunities, varying in duration, are promoted through an online job portal, student communications and via our student affiliated clubs. We are able to facilitate opportunities for employers to engage and interact with relevant student cohorts through information sessions on and off campus. These information sessions are a great way to build company and brand recognition and engage with tomorrow's leaders.

We recently hired two interns through Melbourne University’s Student Employability and Enrichment team. The recruitment process couldn’t have been easier thanks to the hard work of Tracey and her team and we were blown away by the high calibre of all the students we interviewed. Our two new interns are already making a big difference in helping us manage our workflow more effectively. I would highly recommend engaging the Employability and Enrichment team to help you find the right people for your business!
