Intern Professional Placement Program

Accounting and Bookkeeping Internship & Professional Placement Program

Ross Miller, the Career Academy Mentor Program contributor

Industry job placements and internships benefit everybody involved and enable a seamless entry to the business world for students seeking to use the skills they have learnt in a course.

Internships are liked by sponsor organisations and those looking for staff because they operate in a friendly environment where each party gets the opportunity to see how each other operates in an on-boarding environment where up-skilling is an important aspect of the hiring process.

Candidates find internship programs highly beneficial in the process of finding work and getting promoted as these show a willingness to be tutored and coached, while gaining real world experience.

How the Internship Program Works

If you decide to become an intern under our program, you will undergo a Pre-Qualification which focuses on your training results and existing work experience.

You will then be placed under the management of an experienced program manager where you’ll receive expert guidance and program management from qualified and experienced bookkeepers and/or accountants.

The internship is unpaid and completed on a part-time basis and small businesses participants will have the benefit of having work completed on the company’s accounting files.

Our internship tasks are reviewed and modified periodically to reflect the most recent legislative changes and skill requirements.

Assessment of intern skills is required prior to acceptance into the internship program and placement may depend upon the requirements of Internship Program Providers.

The Benefits to You

The internship is a great opportunity to accumulate Australian hands-on work experience for International students. You will learn how to manage your own time, and the sorts of tasks and projects required of an independent contractor operating their own business. It’s a great lead in to running your own business and becoming your own boss!

When you enter an internship with us you’ll also receive career and small business guidance from our team. You’ll also get the benefit of a reference outlining your performance as a part-time, unpaid intern for the duration of your internship with us.
