Fast track your career! Vacation Program Focus Week

Fast track your career! Vacation Program Focus Week

Fast track your career!

Gaining relevant experience is critical to your success when applying for jobs after graduation, and vacation programs are just one of a number of ways to gain valuable industry experience before you graduate.

Vacation programs and internships are available during summer and winter breaks, and are targeted towards students in their second-last year of study. These internships are usually full-time, paid and include training and supervision.

Participation in these programs can greatly improve your chances of future employment as many industries use past vacation program participants as sources for graduate employment programs and junior positions. Better yet, you may also be able to use your vacation experience for course credit!

Need more reasons to apply? Vacation programs enable you to:

  • Experience formal recruitment processes and further develop your application skills.
  • Develop workplace skills, values and attitudes.
  • Meet new people and expand your professional network.
  • Learn about workplace conditions and expectations specific to your industry.
  • Earn money!

For more information on vacation programs and internships visit the Curtin Careers & Employment Centre website – here.

Make sure to keep an eye on Careers For Tomorrow over the next week for more Vacation Program information –  including application advice, vacation opportunities and more.
