Graduate recruiters constantly rate students who have completed an internship higher than those who haven't. Completing an internship demonstrates that you have initiative, dedication and are committed to starting a career in your particular discipline. It also provides a great opportunity for you to gain practical workplace experience in your field of study and can help to determine your career path.

In a competitive market, experience is the key to having a competitive edge over other graduates. Undertaking the Deakin Internship Scheme provides you with an opportunity to get some valuable and relevant experience in your chosen career path.

Opportunity, experience and understanding is how the Deakin Internship Scheme can help you 'connect to your career'. Further, the Internship counts towards your degree, earing you a credit point - either as a core unit or as an elective.
