PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Professional Internship Program

Who is this program for?

This program (the AIPP Professional Internship Program) is a highly specialised program specifically designed for international students/graduates to be the ultimate solution to the problem all students/graduates have: Bridging the gap between your studies, and successfully entering the Australian workforce.

Program Offering

This program is available in all industries Australia-wide, and is fully customised to your preferences when you enrol including but not limited to your preferred:

  • Duration, Start date, End date
  • Industry, Tasks & duties
  • Geographic location
  • Hours, and more

Enrolment Eligibility Criteria:

  • Be of good health and character
  • Have a genuine intention to undertake this program
  • Have a valid visa to be in Australia (as per the Visa Options section above)
  • Have a minimum English ability of IELTS 4.0 average equivalent or above

Candidates must hold and intend to use one of the following visas to be eligible to participate in this program:

  • Australian Citizens
  • Permanent Australian Residents
  • Student Visa (500)
  • Working Holiday Visa (417)
  • Work and Holiday Visa (462)
  • Graduate Visa (485)
  • Spouse Visa

For more information about these visas, to check your eligibility for them, or to find out about other visa options AIPP may be able to sponsor a visa for you under, please visit our visa information page.

When should you enrol?

These facts are so important for your career that can not be repeated frequently enough:

Australian employers value work experience just as much as academic qualifications (and in some cases more!), so a graduate with no work experience has a significant disadvantage compared to a student that has made the effort to undertake internship placements during their studies.
Australian employers often do not regard offshore work experience as relevant to Australia employment (so if you have work experience overseas, expect that it will not count toward your job applications in Australia).

Many employers even value signs of initiative (in undertaking relevant work experience) demonstrations of skill, and developing a track record in the real world more favourably than high grades.

This fact can be seen in the many graduate job advertisements that specify 1-2 years of relevant work experience requirements – and do not mention minimum grade requirements!
If a graduate has no relevant work experience, they will need to start collecting work experience after they graduate (if they want any chance of employment) which results in an immediate delay after their graduation in their success in gaining employment offers, plus a permanent stain against their career profile (that they took no initiative during their studies).

Therefore, It is highly advisable that candidates enrol and undertake this program while studying / ASAP, and consider internship placements to be just as important as their academic aspirations.

Those points aside, we are generally capable of organising internship placements that match candidate’s preferences within 2-3 weeks of enrolment, however we advise that where possible candidates provide as much notice as possible such that we may reserve upcoming internship opportunities for you to better match positions upcoming positions with your interests.

Program Stages:

Program Process Flow / Service Delivery Process Overview

Employability Booster Program

Who is this program for?

This program (the AIPP Employability Booster Program) is designed for job seekers that want to make their candidacy more competitive, boosting their chance to gain employment and to start their career in Australia in a higher position and with a higher salary than they might achieve unsupported.

Program Offering

This program is available Australia-wide across all industries.

Enrolment Eligibility Criteria:

  • Be of good health and character
  • Have a genuine intention to undertake this program
  • Have at least an intermediate standard of English ability
  • Be an Australian Citizen or have a valid visa to be in Australia

There are no visa restrictions imposed on enrolment into this program.

How long does this program last?

Excluding your expected ongoing participation in ToastMasters groups, it is typical that all other components of this program can be completed within 4 weeks subject to your availability and response speed.

When should you enrol?

It is never too early to enrol into this program. In fact, some career consultants argue that identifying your natural talents through obtaining experiences and undertaking personality profiling tests, etc., should actually be conducted before you start your tertiary education programs to ensure that the industry and role you are preparing yourself to enter will suite your character, natural abilities, merits, etc. Therefore we encourage customers to join this program ASAP, and to make time for it.

Delivery of this program is modular. You do not need to complete one component before starting the next. The standard order of module delivery is as outlined below.

Skill Development Training Program (Under Training Visa 407 Sponsorship)

Who is this program for?

This program, the AIPP Skill Development Training Program (Under Training Visa 407), is a highly specialised program made for candidates who are either currently in Australia, or offshore, and want to do a paid internship in Australia in for 12-18 months under an Australian Training Visa (407) sponsorship for the purpose of enhancing/developing their skills, and gain work experience in Australia.

While it is true that it is indeed a common outcome for candidates who have held an Australian Training Visa (407) to receive offers from employers to extend their sponsorship to a “Temporary Skill Shortage visa (TSS/482)”, under which a qualified candidates may then apply for Australian Permanent Residency, this program should not be considered to be a pathway to Australian Permanent Residency. Rather, its purpose is that of developing the candidate’s skills in a profession they are already somewhat skilled/experienced in to help them progress to the next stage of their career (and receive payment while they do the program).

Understanding the spirit of the Training Visa (407)

Although the Training Visa (407) is strictly intended for Genuine Temporary Entrants (GTEs), in every instance the Australian Department of Immigration & Border Protection (DIBP) always aims to serve Australia’s greater migration needs, which means that as a Training Visa (407) applicant, even though you intend to return to your home country or another country after your internship in Australia, you need to be aiming to join an internship that will fill your skill gap, upon the achievement of which will result in you qualifying for an occupation specified in a skill shortage list relevant to the visa.

We do not support every skill shortage / occupational title. To enrol in our Skill Development Training Program (Under Training Visa 407) you will need fit and apply for one of the occupational titles we offer as per the Introduction tab above.

Salary-Negotiation-Secrets

1.4. ONE-TO-ONE INDUSTRY SPECIALIST INTERVIEW TRAINING

Nervous about interviews? Want to practice a bit with someone who won’t judge you and will help you identify your strong points – as well as develop answers to questions with you that make sure your key merits will be recognised and remembered?

In this stage you will receive 5x one-to-one industry specialist training sessions (each spanning for 45 minutes) delivered in the comfort of your home at the time of your choosing via video conference  (using skype or google hangouts, etc). In these sessions our trainers will work with you to:

  • Strengthen your answers for you to be able to talk about your weaknesses to help reduce your weaknesses from being a detriment to your candidacy
  • Develop core answers / statements / sound byes specifically formulated for you to ensure your key merits are heard, recognised, and remembered by interviewers
  • Boost your confidence in your interviews, giving you the chance to show interviewers the best you that you can be, and
  • Ensure your value will be is recognised, placing you ahead of your less-prepared peers / competition

2.1. CUSTOMISED INTERNSHIP PLACEMENT

We work hard to partner and organise with reputable host companies all over Australia that provide meaningful and valuable work experiences that match with the skills and experiences you need to gain to help you achieve your career goals and kick-start your career. In this stage, we will organise an internship placement for you at a reputable Australian company that matches your preferred:

  • Duration, Start date, End date
  • Industry, Tasks & duties
  • Geographic location
  • Hours, and more

In this stage the following steps will occur:

Once you are part-way though your 5x one-to-one training sessions with our trainers, our Corporate Engagement Division will begin organising your internship position with one of our host company partners that matches with your preferred tasks & duties, location, start date, etc., you specified in your enrolment form.
Once AIPP receives confirmation from one of our Host Company Partners of interest in your candidacy, we will ask you to complete your remaining program fee (if outstanding).
Once your program fee has been paid in full, we will coordinate an interview time on your behalf based on your availabilities, and that of the interviewer in the Host Company. (For offshore candidates, this interview will typically be held over the phone, Skype, or Google hangouts)
You will have up to three interviews organised for you with different host companies in this stage. Each interview will be organised once the decision from the initial Host Company is known. Second and third interviews will be organised if the outcome of the previous interview requires it
Once the Host Company has confirmed with us that they will accept you, we will distribute formal Notice of Appointment for signing to you and the Host Company to confirm the details of the placement.

Successful Candidates:
Candidates who successfully pass this stage will progress to the next stage of the program

Unsuccessful Candidates:
As can be seen on our social media profiles, we have a satisfaction rate with our candidates of approximately 95% – meaning, generally our customers are satisfied with the internship placements we organise and our programs as a whole. This rating is the outcome of a lot of professional, hard work and care from our staff to provide you the best programs we can. Understandably though, its not possible to always have a perfect outcome and there are two possible kinds of failure that could occur at this stage:
We fail to organise an internship placement that matches with the preferences provided at the time of the enrolment.
In this case, the candidate would will be entitled to a full refund less an AUD$300 administration fee. In other words, you will have received all of the training components, resume polishing service, etc., for just AUD$300, and any other program fees paid to date would be fully refunded.
The candidate is rejected by all 3 host company partners
It is our mission to help you and we make every effort to help you pass your interviews and our relationships with our host company partners and our processes are very well established, so less than 1% of enrolees fail all three interviews. Failing all 3 interviews is not something that should be feared. Even if a candidate did fail all 3 interviews, it is possible we would organise additional interviews for the candidate until the candidate is are successfully accepted for an internship placement at our discretion. It is necessary for us to have a limitation in our agreement such that in the event of a candidate acting in such a way that damages our relationships with our host company partners (eg: Showing up late to interviews, being rude to interviewers, etc.,) we have a policy to oversee this. Therefore, in accordance with our agreement, in the unlikely event that a candidate does fail all 3 interviews, progression of the program may come to an end for that candidate at our discretion.

2.2. WORKPLACE-BASED INDUSTRY TRAINING & MENTORING

Throughout your internship placement, you will gain:

Valuable exposure to a broad range of business activities through direct hands-on experience, boosting your understanding of the industry you’ve entered, understand what the challenges are, develop your skills to perform your role within the industry well, etc., and develop true insight into the day-to-day operation of a highly competitive firm.
Mentoring & career advice directly from your supervisor(s) of your AIPP host company that will have a meaningful impact, shaping your future career progression

2.3. SOFT SKILL DEVELOPMENT

The most effective way to develop soft skills is through practice and close mentorship, such as that of a supervisor in a work-place based training which is what you will receive throughout your internship placement.

What are soft skills?

The phrase “soft skills” (also referred to as “people skills”, “interpersonal skills”, and “social skills”) is used to describe the skills which characterise relationships with other people, or which are about how you approach life and work. “Hard skills”, on the other hand, is a phrase used to describe job-specific or technical skills. Basically, you can be the best at what you do, but if your soft skills aren’t cutting it, you’re limiting your chances of career success. Some examples of soft skills include:

Communication Skills
Empathy
Adaptability
Conflict Resolution
Making Decisions
Self Motivation
Leadership Skills
Team-Working Skills
Creativity and Problem Solving Skills
Time Management and ability to work under pressure

2.4. ONGOING SUPPORT THROUGHOUT YOUR PLACEMENT

Unlike some other internship placement program providers, the successful arrangement of your internship is not the end of your relationship with us – its the middle! As the saying goes, when it comes to customer service “we go the extra mile”!

Throughout your internship placement duration: Business People in a Meeting and Working Together

We will happily organise a replacement internship placement for you if the placement provided does not meet your preferences specified at the time of your enrolment (unless agreed to by you in writing)
Your designated Success Mentor within AIPP will keep track of your internship placement and periodically contact you to ensure your internship placement is going smoothly
You will receive additional training guides from us designed to help you stand out as a “role model employee candidate” to help boost your chances of your host company offering you employment
Your Success Mentor will happily discuss challenges you might be having in your placement (such as office politics, etc) and attempt to advise you on the best ways to achieve your goals

3.1. CHANCE TO RECEIVE AN OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT

Did you know?
Some internship placement providers request their host company partners to NOT offer employment to well performing interns, and instead to fill the employment opportunity with a constant stream of replacement internship candidates.

We are proud to declare that we have never engaged in such conduct. In fact, such conduct directly goes against the spirit of our training programs:

Any candidate that completes their internship placement provided by us has a legitimate opportunity wherein, upon the successful completion of their internship, their Host Company may provide them a formal offer of employment
It is our aspiration that for as many customers as possible, our internship placements either result in direct offers of employment from our host company partners, or our internship placements help to boost the profiles and therefore employability of our customers upon the completion of our program such that they may soon after gain employment.

3.2. CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

Upon successful completion of your program, you’ll receive an official AIPP Certificate Of Completion for your future reference which you may add to your record of achievements and your resume

3.3. LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FROM YOUR HOST COMPANY

Subject to the discretion of your host company, upon the completion of your internship placement you will receive a Letter of Recommendation outlining the skills and qualities you demonstrated throughout your internship placement that may be of interest to future employers.

3.4. ADDITIONAL PROFESSIONAL RESUME REVIEW

To ensure you’re getting the most value out of the program as possible, we provide an additional resume polishing service upon the completion of your internship placement to ensure that the experience you gained throughout your internship placement is optimally represented in your resume for future use.

professional resume polishing service

Employability Booster Program

We will conduct a formal review of your declared references and provide certification of their validity in the form of an official AIPP Reference Validation Certification which, when accompanied by your resume, serves as a competitive advantage over other applicants for the same jobs you’re applying for as the employer will not have to check your references themselves

Do you know what kind of role your personality is best suited for?
Do you know what kind of role you will naturally excel at?
Do you know what kind of role will destroy your soul after 3 months that you should avoid like the plague?

Our personality profiling test will help you understand your personality in a way deeper than what you might think – it will help you learn and understand what natural talents / traits you may have that will enable you to discover what type of role will suit you best for you to excel in your career naturally – and position you to make better decisions about your career plans.

These results will be shared with you, such that you may retain and refer to them for future application, and generally serve as a guide for your career.

You have probably heard the outdated expression “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”.

As per the requirements of the Training Visa (407), the purpose of the Training Visa (407) under this program is to support candidates in developing their skills in a profession they are already partially skilled/experienced in to help them progress to the next stage of their career.

This means that we must audit your current skills as well as ascertain the degree to which they are already refined, such that we can then gauge what skill developments you require to meet your next career objective as required by your chosen occupational title.

Based on the gaps (between your current skills, and your career objective) identified in this skills audit, and in conjunction with the details you have provided in your resume and the documentation from part 1 of the Detailed Application Review stage, we will then use this information to: 

Ascertain which host company partner meets the necessary requirements for you to be able to gain the experiences / exposure / training / mentoring / etc., necessary for you to develop the skills you have gaps in
And later, once your internship placement is successfully confirmed & formalised in the form of a contract between you and the host company, we will use the gaps identified in your skills audit to develop your Structured Training Plan – the core document the Australian Department of Immigration & Border Protection (DIBP) will use when assessing your Training Visa (407) application.

STAGE 4: Sharing of your professionally polished resume

Unsuccessful Candidates:

Your Structured Development plan will be prepared expertly by us on behalf of your host company, ensuring it addresses all your skill gaps as identified in 4.1. Skills Audit and will be composed in consultation with both you and the host company to ensure that it meets your occupational title aspiration.

Once the Structured Training Plan is prepared, you will be asked to provide us evidence of your registration to a health insurance policy as the policy will be required to be included in your visa application.

Mentoring & career advice directly from your supervisor(s) of your AIPP host company that will have a meaningful impact, shaping your future career progression

2.3. SOFT SKILL DEVELOPMENT

The most effective way to develop soft skills is through practice and close mentorship, such as that of a supervisor in a work-place based training which is what you will receive throughout your internship placement.

What are soft skills?

The phrase “soft skills” (also referred to as “people skills”, “interpersonal skills”, and “social skills”) is used to describe the skills which characterise relationships with other people, or which are about how you approach life and work. “Hard skills”, on the other hand, is a phrase used to describe job-specific or technical skills. Basically, you can be the best at what you do, but if your soft skills aren’t cutting it, you’re limiting your chances of career success. Some examples of soft skills include:

Communication Skills
Empathy
Adaptability
Conflict Resolution
Making Decisions
Self Motivation
Leadership Skills
Team-Working Skills
Creativity and Problem Solving Skills
Time Management and ability to work under pressure

Are you nervous you might ask for too much? Or too little? Salary-Negotiation-Secrets

In the event that you are offered employment either from a business affiliated with us, or an employer sourced through your own job seeking activities, upon your introduction we will liaise with the employer on your behalf to negotiate your remuneration package

13.5. CHANCE TO RECEIVE AN OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT
Did you know?
Some internship placement providers request their host company partners to NOT offer employment to well performing interns, and instead to fill the employment opportunity with a constant stream of replacement internship candidates.

We are proud to declare that we have never engaged in such conduct. In fact, such conduct directly goes against the spirit of our training programs:

Any candidate that completes their internship placement provided by us has a legitimate opportunity wherein, upon the successful completion of their internship, their Host Company may provide them a formal offer of employment
It is our aspiration that for as many customers as possible, our internship placements either result in direct offers of employment from our host company partners, or our internship placements help to boost the profiles and therefore employability of our customers upon the completion of our program such that they may soon after gain employment

13.6. TALENT POOL INCLUSION (Shared With Prospective Employers looking to hire)

In this stage you will receive 5x one-to-one industry specialist training sessions (each spanning for 45 minutes) delivered in the comfort of your home at the time of your choosing via video conference (using skype or google hangouts, etc). In these sessions our trainers will work with you to:

2.1. CUSTOMISED INTERNSHIP PLACEMENT

We work hard to partner and organise with reputable host companies all over Australia that provide meaningful and valuable work experiences that match with the skills and experiences you need to gain to help you achieve your career goals and kick-start your career. In this stage, we will organise an internship placement for you at a reputable Australian company that matches your preferred:

Duration, Start date, End date
Industry, Tasks & duties
Geographic location
Hours, and more

In this stage the following steps will occur:

Once you are part-way though your 5x one-to-one training sessions with our trainers, our Corporate Engagement Division will begin organising your internship position with one of our host company partners that matches with your preferred tasks & duties, location, start date, etc., you specified in your enrolment form.
Once AIPP receives confirmation from one of our Host Company Partners of interest in your candidacy, we will ask you to complete your remaining program fee (if outstanding).
Once your program fee has been paid in full, we will coordinate an interview time on your behalf based on your availabilities, and that of the interviewer in the Host Company. (For offshore candidates, this interview will typically be held over the phone, Skype, or Google hangouts)
You will have up to three interviews organised for you with different host companies in this stage. Each interview will be organised once the decision from the initial Host Company is known. Second and third interviews will be organised if the outcome of the previous interview requires it
Once the Host Company has confirmed with us that they will accept you, we will distribute formal Notice of Appointment for signing to you and the Host Company to confirm the details of the placement.

Successful Candidates:
Candidates who successfully pass this stage will progress to the next stage of the program

Unsuccessful Candidates:
As can be seen on our social media profiles, we have a satisfaction rate with our candidates of approximately 95% – meaning, generally our customers are satisfied with the internship placements we organise and our programs as a whole. This rating is the outcome of a lot of professional, hard work and care from our staff to provide you the best programs we can. Understandably though, its not possible to always have a perfect outcome and there are two possible kinds of failure that could occur at this stage:
We fail to organise an internship placement that matches with the preferences provided at the time of the enrolment.
In this case, the candidate would will be entitled to a full refund less an AUD$300 administration fee. In other words, you will have received all of the training components, resume polishing service, etc., for just AUD$300, and any other program fees paid to date would be fully refunded.
The candidate is rejected by all 3 host company partners
It is our mission to help you and we make every effort to help you pass your interviews and our relationships with our host company partners and our processes are very well established, so less than 1% of enrolees fail all three interviews. Failing all 3 interviews is not something that should be feared. Even if a candidate did fail all 3 interviews, it is possible we would organise additional interviews for the candidate until the candidate is are successfully accepted for an internship placement at our discretion. It is necessary for us to have a limitation in our agreement such that in the event of a candidate acting in such a way that damages our relationships with our host company partners (eg: Showing up late to interviews, being rude to interviewers, etc.,) we have a policy to oversee this. Therefore, in accordance with our agreement, in the unlikely event that a candidate does fail all 3 interviews, progression of the program may come to an end for that candidate at our discretion.

2.2. WORKPLACE-BASED INDUSTRY TRAINING & MENTORING

Throughout your internship placement, you will gain:

Valuable exposure to a broad range of business activities through direct hands-on experience, boosting your understanding of the industry you’ve entered, understand what the challenges are, develop your skills to perform your role within the industry well, etc., and develop true insight into the day-to-day operation of a highly competitive firm.
Mentoring & career advice directly from your supervisor(s) of your AIPP host company that will have a meaningful impact, shaping your future career progression

2.3. SOFT SKILL DEVELOPMENT

The most effective way to develop soft skills is through practice and close mentorship, such as that of a supervisor in a work-place based training which is what you will receive throughout your internship placement.

What are soft skills?

The phrase “soft skills” (also referred to as “people skills”, “interpersonal skills”, and “social skills”) is used to describe the skills which characterise relationships with other people, or which are about how you approach life and work. “Hard skills”, on the other hand, is a phrase used to describe job- specific or technical skills. Basically, you can be the best at what you do, but if your soft skills aren’t cutting it, you’re limiting your chances of career success. Some examples of soft skills include:

  • Communication Skills
  • Empathy
  • Adaptability
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Making Decisions
  • Self Motivation
  • Leadership Skills
  • Team-Working Skills
  • Creativity and Problem Solving Skills
  • Time Management and ability to work under pressure

2.4. ONGOING SUPPORT THROUGHOUT YOUR PLACEMENT

Unlike some other internship placement program providers, the successful arrangement of your internship is not the end of your relationship with us – its the middle! As the saying goes, when it comes to customer service “we go the extra mile”! 

Throughout your internship placement duration:

  • We will happily organise a replacement internship placement for you if the placement provided does not meet your preferences specified at the time of your enrolment (unless agreed to by you in writing)
  • Your designated Success Mentor within AIPP will keep track of your internship placement and periodically contact you to ensure your internship placement is going smoothly
  • You will receive additional training guides from us designed to help you stand out as a “role model employee candidate” to help boost your chances of your host company offering you employment
  • Your Success Mentor will happily discuss challenges you might be having in your placement (such as office politics, etc) and attempt to advise you on the best ways to achieve your goals

3.1. CHANCE TO RECEIVE AN OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT

Did you know?
Some internship placement providers request their host company partners to NOT offer employment to well performing interns, and instead to fill the employment opportunity with a constant stream of replacement internship candidates.

We are proud to declare that we have never engaged in such conduct. In fact, such conduct directly goes against the spirit of our training programs:

Any candidate that completes their internship placement provided by us has a legitimate opportunity wherein, upon the successful completion of their internship, their Host Company may provide them a formal offer of employment
It is our aspiration that for as many customers as possible, our internship placements either result in direct offers of employment from our host company partners, or our internship placements help to boost the profiles and therefore employability of our customers upon the completion of our program such that they may soon after gain employment.

3.2. CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

Upon successful completion of your program, you’ll receive an official AIPP Certificate Of Completion for your future reference which you may add to your record of achievements and your resume

3.3. LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FROM YOUR HOST COMPANY

Subject to the discretion of your host company, upon the completion of your internship placement you will receive a Letter of Recommendation outlining the skills and qualities you demonstrated throughout your internship placement that may be of interest to future employers.

3.4. ADDITIONAL PROFESSIONAL RESUME REVIEW

To ensure you’re getting the most value out of the program as possible, we provide an additional resume polishing service upon the completion of your internship placement to ensure that the experience you gained throughout your internship placement is optimally represented in your resume for future use.

professional resume polishing service

3.5. LINKEDIN PROFILE POLISHING SERVICE

You have probably heard the outdated expression “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. More accurately now with the influence of increased connectivity, “it’s not who you know, it’s who they know”. Additionally, it is rumoured that over 90% of recruiters use LinkedIn as their primary tool to source talent, so set the circumstances to be in your favour – have your LinkedIn profile reviewed by our professional
team and made right.

3.6. TALENT POOL INCLUSION (Shared With Prospective Employers looking to hire)

Your profile will be added to our talent pool database which we share with prospective employers that are actively looking to hire new staff, giving you great exposure to all enquiring employers, boost your chances of gaining employment

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Professional Internship Program

AIPP’s professional internship programs are designed for domestic and international students and graduates with professional internship programs in Australia, hosted by reputable Australian companies committed to helping passionate students gain meaningful experience in their chosen field(s).

This program is the solution to an important problem

In this highly competitive market and with the current economic difficulties, it is increasingly difficult and common for students to struggle to find a full-time, paying job. The biggest issue is that companies now require students to have experience before they will hire anyone. For students who do not have experience yet, this means that they cannot get a job until they first gain professional work experience.

Directly? No.

Indirectly? Possibly:

Just like how Professional Year Programs (PY) give graduates +5 points towards their Permanent Residency application for the work experience they have completed, in certain circumstances cases where candidates have worked as an employee for 12+ months can provide +5 towards their permanent residency application. (For more information please visit DHA)
There are cases where, upon completion of an internship, the candidate’s host company offers them employment and visa sponsorship. In cases where the visa sponsorship is either the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (482) or a regional visa, it is possible for the candidate to apply for Australian permanent residency once they qualify.
In summary, while it is true that there are cases where candidates who do this program gain Australian Permanent Residency, this program should not be considered a pathway to Australian Permanent Residency. Rather, its purpose is simply to boost candidates’ employability through the provision of training, Australian work experience, skill development, etc., throughout the program. Occurrences of offers of ongoing employment / visa sponsorship, etc., should just be regarded as a possible bonus – not something guaranteed or expected as a result of this program.

The way employers think is simple: More experience is better than less experience. So the sooner you start, the better. Often students make the mistake of thinking to start an internship after they graduate, or after their exams, etc., but this is exactly the mistake that can prevent you from entering a good company as soon as you graduate. Why? Because while one student is resting, another student is gaining professional experience. And employers always choose the best candidates. And often the first job a student gets has a huge impact on their future career opportunities, so gaining internship experience now is very important to make yourself as competitive as possible in the future.

Additionally, it is recommended that you start your internship program straight away, and simply do your internship 1-2 days a week during your busy periods because after university life it is normal to be busy with many things at the same time, so showing your future employers that you managed to do an internship while you were studying will add considerable credibility to your personal professional profile and employability success.

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE THAT AIPP WILL ORGANISE YOUR INTERNSHIP PLACEMENT SUCCESSFULLY

We have full confidence in our ability to train you and organise a successful, professional internship placement for you that AIPP provides a 100% money back guarantee to organise your placement within 45 days of you joining program (please note the average placement time requirement is 2 weeks).

AIPP has networks of relationships with thousands of reputable Australian companies all over Australia in every industry. As per the above, AIPP will organise an internship placement for you with one of AIPP’s Host Company Partners. Which of AIPP’s host company partners you will intern with depends on a few factors, starting with your preferences. Your internship placement will be customised to meet the conditions you specify in your AIPP enrolment form. For example, if you decide you want to do an accounting internship in Sydney city starting in September in a roll gaining experience with MYOB, then that is exactly what AIPP will organise for you.

So you can get an idea of some of the different role types available, a sample list of some new / recent internship opportunities our Host Company Partners have offered are available for you to see here. Ultimately if there is a particular role you would like to do that is not currently on display in the sample list, please enrol anyway and specify your preferences in your enrolment form as we will customise our program to your preferences. If we are unable to meet your criteria, you will receive a refund of your program fees as is the policy of our agreement. Additionally, unless requested, AIPP guarantees that your internship will not only be administrative / clerical. We negotiate with our Host Company Partner for you on your behalf for you to receive great training and exposure throughout your internship.

Regarding the disclosure of the names of our thousands of host company partners, there are too   many to list so we only provide a sample list of some of our host company partners which you may like to review here. Additionally, much like you are a client to us, our Host Company Partners are our clients too, and ultimately we have a service we must provide to them. Part of this service is to screen for the right candidates for them that meet their criteria, and save them from unnecessary harassment from unsuitable candidates. It is only once a candidate has enrolled, been fully screened for eligibility by AIPP, and trained, is AIPP able to introduce our candidates to our host company clients as part of our quality control service requirement to our Host Company Partners.

Separately, as a general practice we do not allow candidates to nominate any one specific company or position at any one company as part of their enrolment, for the reason being that it is possible you may be rejected by that Host Company Partner and your program would come to a meaningless end. Therefore, instead, you are required to specify your preferred criteria in your enrolment form. And then, using that information for our reference, we then match you to one of our suitable host company partners that meet your specified criteria.

Again, to be clear, your internship placement will be organised based on the criteria you specify in your AIPP enrolment form, so you can be confident AIPP will organise an internship placement that matches your preferences.

Generally speaking there are more benefits to gain through doing an internship at a smaller or medium sized company rather than a larger one, such as:

In a small organisation, you can make a bigger impact. In small organisations, processes tend to be more streamlined and more visible, so you can see the impact of your work relatively faster.
The work you do will impress your manager and build a quality relationship. Many placements with smaller companies are project based. This means that you can take ownership of a task and see it through to the end – something that will impress your manager and your future employers. In addition, you will be closely involved with the entire business process and get a real insight into how the business operates.
You will develop key employability skills. As mentioned in the above point, in a small organisation, you are more likely to be responsible for your own project. your initiative will be tested and you’ll be able to develop your leadership, team collaboration, and time management and communication skills.
Your placement can be tailored to suit you. Work experience at a small organisation is unlikely to follow a set of rules, predetermined schedules and it should be possible to give you enough flexibility to tailor made the job description that reflects your interests.
Most importantly, show that you can consistently deliver good quality work to the host company, and there’s a good chance you’ll stay as a full time employee. A high number of small employers will be able to provide students further work after their placement, from additional projects to full-time employment when you graduate.

Unpaid work is lawful if it is a genuine work experience, vocational placement or volunteering arrangement. AIPP is fully compliant with the Fair Work Australia’s Guidelines for Vocational Placements, Unpaid Work Experience, & Internships as per Fair Work Australia’s (fairwork.gov.au) stipulation:

“A work experience arrangement or internship is when a person works for a business to gain experience in a particular occupation or industry. These arrangements can be a valuable way for prospective employees to make the transition from study to work or explore a new career path. Sometimes these arrangements span several months and can lead to ongoing employment.

Unpaid work can take on different forms – from vocational placements, unpaid internships, unpaid work experience and unpaid trials. They are entered into for a number of reasons such as giving a person experience in a job or industry”

When you participate in a work experience or internship placement through AIPP, AIPP always puts the welfare of interns as its first priority in an effort to help make sure that the main benefit of our genuine work placement or internship flows to the intern doing the placement. AIPP therefore is meeting its obligations under the Commonwealth workplace law, and is fully compliant with the Fair Work Australia guidelines. For detail information, please visit:

As per our agreement, if we fail to gain this interest from the host company, we do not charge you the $1000 and we return to you your $500 (so you receive a full refund).If you fail that interview, we are obligated to organise another 2 interviews for you or provide you a full refund, as per our terms and conditions.

That is our purpose and the purpose of the program, so our program, our actions, our contract, etc., are all tailor fitted to achieve that purpose. You will also notice that our enrolment form is all geared toward organising your placement for you successfully, fit with your specified.

We would like to inform you that you can get to choose the days you do your internship, full-time or part-time, the city/location and your preferred duties/role. We completely customise to what you want, and what will help you start your career! If you would like to join, please fill in the enrolment form found here and complete the payment for this program (you will be directed to a payment page once you submit your enrolment form)
In regards to the duration of the internship, we let you choose how long you want to do the internship but we always recommend 12 weeks duration. This is to ensure that you have have had enough time to complete a significant amount of training (because usually after a host company has invested a lot of time in you, they want to keep you in their team), also 12 weeks

Our program, the AIPP Professional Internship Program, exists to assist professionals (whether recent graduate or not, there is no limit in terms of years) who are making a career change and students to help them kickstart their career in their chosen profession (and in many cases, get an offer of employment from their host company upon the completion of their internship)..

In the case of Engineering it could take anything between 2-8 weeks to organise a placement. Engineering is a rare but well sought after placement. As per AIPP’s terms and conditions, if AIPP is unable to organise an Internship Placement for the student within 60 days, AIPP would provide a refund.

As this would in no way be AIPP failing to deliver our service, you would not qualify for a refund. Separately, generally speaking our host companies have intentions to hire our candidates after their internship, so if you expect you will get a job elsewhere while you are enrolled in our program, we would advise that you do not join our program as we are only looking to take on committed candidates.However if you have been looking for a position yourself for some time, and you are finding your applications are not being fruitful, then I would recommend you join our program ASAP so we can help you start your career.

I am afraid to tell you that the position will not begin as paid but it is common that it may become paid. Generally speaking, the reason a person does an internship is because employers in Australia expect people to have work experience before they will consider hiring / paying the person. Therefore, the purpose of your internship is for you to gain work experience and develop their work skills. Once you have done this, the employer(s) will recognise your ability to contribute value to their organisation, and it is this that boosts your employability, giving you a real chance to be hired as an employee (in fact the last candidate we placed in HR even received visa sponsorship).
Please keep in mind that culturally in Australia it is standard for Internships to be unpaid as you will be gaining valuable experience in your chosen profession as part of your training program. Once you gain more work experience, employers will see you as being positioned to be able to contribute value to their organisation, thereby boosting your employability and qualifying you to thereafter receive pay. Until a person meets this criteria, it is very rare that a host company will provide a paid internship position. Some good news, however, is that more than half our candidates end up getting an offer of employment and in many cases visa sponsorship from our host company partners upon the successful completion of their internship, so it is definitely possible that you may experience the same outcome and start to gain payment from then.

The trouble that you have been having about being stuck in your career due to inadequate local work experience is a very common issue. In fact, it is the standard issue almost everyone has, because Australian culture requires a person to show initiative and do an internship before a company will think seriously about hiring them – and this is why we as a business exist and have so many candidates. Some good news for you however is that we currently have many internship opportunity vacancies in the accounting and tax field, so we would be able to organise your placement very quickly (probably 1-3 weeks depending on how quickly you complete our compulsory resume and interview training components).

You can either be on a student visa, or have completed your studies and be on a graduate visa, or in some cases we can organise an internship visa for you.
No. It is not necessary to have a student status or completed your studies in Australia, but you do need some form of visa, and those two are a good option. Your other options may include (but may not be limited to) getting a working holiday visa (depending on which country you’re from), or getting an internship visa (to qualify for this you will need to be 30 years old or younger). However, we would suggest that we better get you a student visa to do an internship here in Australia since getting you an internship visa would take longer and be more expensive. We have contracts / partnerships with over 250 schools in Australia wide which means we can help introduce a good school to you depending on what you want to do. In this way, we can get you a student visa easily.

Engineering placements in general are very rare and difficult to find, especially for international students as host companies are nervous to spend their time training and developing an individual they are concerned might leave their organisation after the training as many host companies only take interns if they have plans to develop them and hire them, especially in engineering. Due to the difficulty and complexity of this placement, our program fee in this case would be $1800 including enrolment fees. If you are only open to accepting a placement in the Perth area, $300 of the program fee would be a non refundable enrolment fee in the event that our host company partners reject you, and we are unable to organise your internship (this fee is to cover part of our administration expenses, host company liaising expenses, training expenses, etc) If however you would be willing to join an internship anywhere in Australia, the non refundable enrolment fee would only be $100 as you would be making it easier for us. We expect that your placement would take between 2 – 6 weeks for us to organise for you.

The statistics is a quite stable 50% across all engineering disciplines Australia wide – but to be clear, this obviously requires that the candidate performs well / fits the host company.

We provide a maximum of 3 interviews per candidate. If you unfortunately fail the first interview, we will organise your 2nd interview, then we will organise a third. However there are occasions where we provide a complimentary interview depending on the circumstances. The reason we generally have a limit of 3 interviews is to protect our company and our companies relationships with our host company partners from the poor conduct of candidates e.g. showing up to interviews late, missing interviews, being rude, etc.

The upside of this is that 95% of our customers pass their first interview. Only 2-3% of customers fail all three (3) interviews.

We provide 5 x one-to-one interview practice session with one of our AIPP specialist trainers.

Our proven training and internship programs are custom designed to help develop each customer succeed in today’s challenging employment market. We aim to ensure that you can achieve the career success you deserve and have already worked so hard for.

To proceed, book a free career consultation with one of our agents to discuss our program in more details from our contact page here.

We also organise a full return of any payments if we don’t deliver our service.

Our host company partners have asked us to screen applicants for them, to make sure that they meet their criteria. It is only after we have screened the candidates that we introduce them to the host company. And from there, the host company will review your application, and tell us if they are interested to take your candidacy further.

Our host companies do not want to be contacted (harassed) by unsuitable candidates. Screening the candidates is one of the services our host company partners expect from us. So for this reason we can not tell you who our host companies are.

Additionally, you need to recognise that ultimately the host company needs to accept you. Meaning it is also their choice whether they will accept you.

Therefore our process is for you to specify your preferences to us at the time of your application in your enrolment form – details like the location you want to do your internship in, what industry you want to work in, what tasks you want to do / skills you want to develop, etc.

Then, once we have those details from you and your complete application, we will then match you with our suitable host companies and ask them to review your application.

AIPP believes in providing a premium quality service. As such, all enrolments are customised to the individual’s needs and preferred start dates. For this reason, AIPP does not force customers to enrol in fixed intake start dates. You are completely free to choose when to enrol.

There is no maximum as to how early in advance of your placement you should enrol into this program. In fact, the earlier you enrol before you want to start your internship, the more time you are providing AIPP to reserve upcoming internship opportunities for you at our many host company partners, to better match positions with your interests.

As per the program stages & timeframes outlined below, in order to complete the stages of the program required to organise your internship successfully, it is best if you enrol at least 6 weeks before you wish to start your internship

Time is limited and we never get the chance to re-do the exact same moment twice. With this in mind, recognise that your dream to do an internship in Australia is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you will have. So why not make it the best possible experience it can be? If you’re sure you want to come to Australia to do an internship, enrol now so we can make your dream your reality.

Employability Booster Program

We believe both programs are valuable and important for students’ / graduates’ success and we are committed to helping students / graduates transition from their studies to employment, so we have made both programs available as a deal to make it more affordable for customers to receive both for the price of one!

Skill Development Training Program (Under Training Visa 407)

Closely related to the trainee’s current occupation, field of study or area of expertise;
Enhance the trainee’s current skill level;
Conducted in a supervised workplace;
Not impact upon occupational training opportunities for Australian citizens and permanent residents.

Generally speaking there are more benefits to gain through doing an internship at a smaller or medium sized company rather than a larger one, such as:

In a small organisation, you can make a bigger impact. In small organisations, processes tend to be more streamlined and more visible, so you can see the impact of your work relatively faster.
The work you do will impress your manager and build a quality relationship. Many placements with smaller companies are project based. This means that you can take ownership of a task and see it through to the end – something that will impress your manager and your future employers. In addition, you will be closely involved with the entire business process and get a real insight into how the business operates.
You will develop key employability skills. As mentioned in the above point, in a small organisation, you are more likely to be responsible for your own project. your initiative will be tested and you’ll be able to develop your leadership, team collaboration, and time management and communication skills.
Your placement can be tailored to suit you. Work experience at a small organisation is unlikely to follow a set of rules, predetermined schedules and it should be possible to give you enough flexibility to tailor made the job description that reflects your interests.
Most importantly, show that you can consistently deliver good quality work to the host company, and there’s a good chance you’ll stay as a full time employee. A high number of small employers will be able to provide students/graduates further work after their placement, from additional projects to full-time employment.

The chance can’t be simplified into a percentage. It will be circumstantial / case by case. Consider that if the employer is happy to take you under a 407, that means they have a need for workers with your skill set. But for them to keep you on as a 482 after the 407 will depend on your performance, whether the company likes them at the end of the 407, and other factors

Professional Internship Program (Under Temporary Activity Visa 408)

If you apply for your Temporary Activity Visa (408) to span for greater than 3 months, then you must be sponsored and nominated by an approved temporary activities sponsor or sponsor who passes the sponsorship test. Including a professional Migration Agent’s service fees, organising sponsorship and nomination of a Temporary Activity Visa (408) generates over AUD$4,000 in additional costs involved in providing this program, which would make the pricing of this program impractical. Therefore, due to the visa’s limitations, the duration of this program is limited to a maximum of 3 months.
