Work experience and internships

(Previously known as Work experience, internships, trial work and payment entitlements)

It is common for students and graduates to engage in work experience, internships or trial work. Such opportunities are a direct way for students and graduates to get a foot in the door and secure employment. These arrangements benefit the industry in the long term by building more comprehensive knowledge and skills. Within the profession, students and graduates need to be aware of their rights and the business or organisation needs to be aware of their responsibilities under Fair Work legislation.
