Getting started

If sourcing your own internship/placement for WIL or other opportunities, you’ll need to do some early preparation and planning to find a host organisation or project.

To get started, identify relevant organisations and research thoroughly before approaching them. If you’ve found your own WIL for-credit placement this will need to be approved by your faculty.

Visit the Career Connect website for advice and resources to help you get started.

For example:

  • identify and research potential employers, search organisations on Career Gateway
  • strategies for approaching employers
  • networking tips
  • paid internships advertised on Career Gateway and Monash Global Careers.

Career Connect has more on preparing for job applications and interviews.
