Why do an Internship?

You need work experience to get a job. But as a student or recent graduate, how do you gain that practical experience? One increasingly popular way is through a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement. Sometimes referred to as an Internship, a Work Integrated Learning placement is a practical training program in a work based environment.

The Australian job market is competitive and a WIL placement can help you stand out as a recent graduate. WIL placements provide an opportunity to trial the career you want, develop an understanding of a real workplace and add practical experience to your resume, whilst having a mentor guide and train you throughout. The Performance Careers Professional WIL Placement (Internship) Program helps candidates successfully bridge the gap from study to professional employment.
