The Australian Institute of Professional Pathways (AIPP) is a team of uniquely trained HR and business professionals put together since 2007 to help Australian host companies as well as local & international graduates to meet the intern staffing needs and work experience requirements of Australian in such a way that increases staff productivity in a targeted, cost-efficient and effective manner. Similarly, we have been helping hundreds of students and graduates secure career outcomes that were previously unattainable through their own efforts. Our internship programs offer aspiring graduates a rare opportunity to facilitate their transition from study to a successful career. Based on the feedback we have receive from our students & partners, we’re confident that we provide the best professional internship program in the market because we make sure that our students always get the best out of our host companies, for which we have countless success stories and testimonials to prove our claim from both Host Company Partners, and our Students.
We are proudly Australia’s Intern provider of choice & booster of student employability™. We work with government agencies, universities, colleges, and individuals from all over the world to organise thousands of professional internship programs in reputable companies in all industries all over Australia.

WHY USE AIPP FOR INTERNSHIP PLACEMENTS?
At AIPP, we keep things simple, for simplicity demands a concentrated focus. We pride ourselves on the professional organising and placement of internships for our students / graduates in internship positions that can genuinely help them accelerate their career, and often result in offers of employment from our quality host company partners.
60 DAY 100% SUCCESSFUL PLACEMENT MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

AIPP organises upto 3 interviews for the candidate’s internship placement in the event of the customer failing the previous interview.
We are proud to say that in the history of our company, no one has ever failed all three interviews, which we like to consider as a testament to the quality of our no cost services we will provide our customers.
BROAD REACH OF HOST COMPANIES / INDUSTRIES
AIPP works with small and medium-sized businesses (organisations with fewer than 70 employees) because small businesses provide the best platform for students to get a broad range of exposure to various parts of a business very quickly. Doing an internship at a small business is for a student almost like doing a mini MBA, making their profile more competitive, helping them succeed in their future job applications.
Currently we only accept internship opportunities that:
● Are offered in a safe office environment in a geographic location fitting to the customer’s stipulated preference;
● Are in a firm that has a minimum of 5 full-time staff members;
● Will in some way help the Intern develop their professional work skills.
GENUINE CARE FOR STUDENTS, & HIGH JOB PLACEMENT SUCCESS
Are you aware that 76% of student’s first jobs are sourced by means other than online ads, such as through internship placements?
We have a lot of experience with a broad range of host companies, so we know what to look for when a candidate hopes to gain employment through their internship program, and we are able to provide genuine advice and guidance on the best ways this can be achieved through our programs.
Separately, we also have experience in providing opportunities to candidates who are not aspiring to work in Australia for the long term, but are simply looking to gain a once in a lifetime experience as part of their adventure to visit Australia for the short term, who are looking for an internship opportunity they can add to their resume for the future career.
SERVICE FEES, TIMING, & INTEGRATION OPTIONS
Affordable Service Fees
Typically our service fees for onshore programs (that do not require visa sponsorship) range from $1,100 to $1,798 subject to the needs of your institution.
We understand that every Educational Institution is unique, so we facilitate a flexible range of integration options in an effort to fit the needs of your institution best.
The Best Time To Help Your Students
As a general rule of thumb, students start seeking employment soon after commencing their study program. Therefore, the ideal time for employment support services to be offered is as part of your institution’s orientation. In fact, it is arguable that some students may have trouble concentrating on their study program until they have some form of income secured. Therefore, the sooner an institution can help their students overcome this mental block, the sooner the students can start focusing their attention on their studies – which incidentally can contribute toward higher grades, attendance rates, retention, and more.

PROGRAM ENTRY ACCEPTANCE REQUIREMENTS
The department of immigration recognises internship placements as work, not study, unless the customer’s internship is formally part of their studies, in which case the internship may be considered a ‘vocational placement’, which in some cases allows a customer on a student visa to do an internship placement full-time. If this is not the case, student visa holders will typically be subjugated to a maximum of 20 hours per week.
Other visa holders such as graduate, working holiday, TR, PR, etc., with full work rights will be able to intern full-time if they and the host company agree to do so.
ENGLISH / IELTS / TOEIC REQUIREMENTS
Unless otherwise specified, candidates are required to have a minimum of IELTS 5 or TOEIC 500 to be eligible to enter any of AIPP’s programs. Generally speaking, our host companies are most appreciative of individuals with higher speaking and listening skills more so than reading or writing, so if an individual has a strong speaking / listening skill and a poor reading / writing skill, they may still be eligible to enter one of AIPP’s programs.
WORK EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS
Although it is always appreciated and will assist in advancing your career faster, customers are not required to have any work experience prior to entering any of AIPP’s programs.
ATTITUDE / PERSONALITY / CHARACTER
In addition to the standard appreciation for individuals with a good attitude, strong work ethic, passion to develop themselves, etc., in some cases, our host company partners request for the intern to provide a police check as well as a responsible to work with alcohol or children below the age of 18 check, which means that generally speaking only candidates with upstanding backgrounds are eligible to enter AIPP programs.
THE SALES PROCESS
AIPP VISIT PRESENTATIONS
When possible, AIPP is happy to organise in-house presentation days (at your venue) where an AIPP staff member will hold a short presentation to your audience of potential customers on employment trends / strategies, etc., as well as share some stories and updates on what internship opportunities AIPP currently has available as a way for your customers to have the chance to hear from and talk to an AIPP staff member directly.
BUNDLING AIPP’S INTERNSHIP
Many of the education entities that AIPP currently works with decide to promote internship programs bundled as part of their product offering with their other programs, and outsource the internship placement component to AIPP for their interested customers.
In this regard, there are two promotional opportunities:
● Provide our program under AIPP’s branding at our retail rate.
● Provide our program / services under your educational institution’s brand, at our wholesale rate, which your educational institution may then add a margin on top of, or provide at a break-even point such that you can benefit from the competitive advantage of having internship placements as part of your product offering.
SUCCESS STORIES FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
I would like to thank the AIPP team for giving me the chance in the best company I have ever worked for. I met wonderful people to work with who gave me advice me on the type of career I wanted to do and for which skills and interests are suitable. Thank you!
I got an opportunity to start my internship at a Host Company in May 2010. Currently, I am working as a data analyst there and I absolutely love what I do. I would like to thank all AIPP staff for their support and encouragement throughout the course and internship.
The past 12 weeks have been the best learning experience I have ever had in my entire life. I realised that work is so much different from study and it really requires a lot of common sense and self initiatives. Luckily I have developed these skills and experiences through AIPP. I am so grateful!
