Business students, boost your CV with these work experience opportunities for T2, 2022
Do you want to give yourself a competitive edge with prospective employers? Consider doing some workplace experience in your area of interest through a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) internship for Trimester 2 (T2).
Here’s what Bachelor of Commerce student Anjuli, who took part in the Australian Business Consultancy Program, thought of her WIL experience:
The ABC Program was extremely helpful as it increased my exposure to the job market. It gave me the opportunity to directly communicate and work with the founder of a company. This internship has definitely increased my employability as I am now more confident when interacting with employers. This unit has also enhanced my communication, teamwork, presentation, and interviewing skills. I would definitely recommend this unit to any students considering WIL.
