If you're feeling unwell, get tested for COVID-19 and stay home until you’ve received a negative result. View our latest COVID-19 updates.
You are no longer required to submit a WIL eligibility form from the Monash Business School with your application.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have available credit points in your course to fit your WIL unit. WIL units can usually be taken in place of elective or capstone units, or a combination of both.
You will need to provide your updated resume. Please save the file as a Word document and name the file as:
First Name - Last Name - Student ID - Resume.doc
Career Connect can provide you with assistance on writing your resume in workshops and online assistance.
We will use your responses to the Placement Proposal questions below to assess your application and shortlist you. Your responses may also be shared with the host organisation. You’ll notice that the questions may ask for different things depending on whether you are applying for a placement or a project so be mindful you respond to the right part. Please see the questions below with some information on what we need to know:
Please consider the sort of organisation you would like to consult for (eg. not-for-profit or community organisation, small to medium enterprise, Big 4) and problems you would like to solve (eg. revenue generation, improving communications, policy and governance)
You will need to provide information on key areas for development and improvement that this consulting project will provide and how these specific skills will apply to your future career (e.g. technical skills, communication skills, teamwork). You could also think about how this experience will help you secure your next role or dream job.
In this section you should be able to provide us with at least two personal and professional goals which will be supported by the consulting project. You might want to think about your personal growth areas or personality traits which could be improved (eg, being more outgoing and speaking up or, for more outgoing types, letting others be heard and encouraging quieter team members to share their thoughts). Be sure to include at least one of each to answer completely and dot points are fine.
In this section you will need to describe how the consulting project will relate to your course or major. Given that consulting projects are team based, your group may all have different majors so think about what your background could bring. You could also include valuable insights from your work or volunteer experience.

What to expect:
Please remember that this is a very competitive process and if you do not respond to communications from the WIL Team, you will not be considered for a consulting project.
After the WIL Team has completed matching, we’ll get in touch to let you know the final outcome of your application. This may be as late as O-week depending on when you submitted your application and the type of project you are applying for.
We’ll send you a confirmation email with a Placement Agreement attached. You will need to sign and return the Placement Agreement via InPlace to finalise the application process and accept the placement. Once the signed agreement is received your enrolment will be processed and you’ll need to confirm it in WES.
You’ll get access to the relevant Moodle site where you’ll find all the information about your assessment.
In order for you to understand what to expect during your consulting project, you are required to attend an Induction Session, which will cover important information regarding assessment and very useful workplace information.
You will receive details of the session in your placement confirmation email.
