The whole application process and internship management will be organised by Virtual Internships. All applications will be sent to and reviewed directly by them, and all communication and documents with regard to the internship will be provided by Virtual Internships.
Applications will not be made to specific internship opportunities. Instead, successful applicants will be matched by Virtual Internships to organisations and projects. This match will be based on the strength of the application and the career areas identified.
The application process will consist of the following stages:
- Completion of an initial Virtual Internships Programme online application form
Applicants will be required to upload a CV as part of the online application form
- Completion and upload of a virtual video application
The virtual video application will take 10-15 minutes and recorded footage may also be shown to prospective host companies during the matching process. Applicants will be prompted to complete the video application once the online application form has been submitted.
- Full application will be reviewed and assessed by Virtual Internships
- Formal programme offer made to successful applicant
- Applicant confirms participation
Full details about the application process and the support provided by Virtual Internships can be found in the Virtual Internship Program support document (PDF - 6.28MB). It is recommended to read this in full.
Once an internship has been confirmed, Careers Network will initiate payment of the bursary to the successful intern. Please note that an internship is not guaranteed by submitting an application. Approximately 30 funded opportunities are available and will be offered based on the strength of an application.
The deadline to submit the online application form and virtual video application is 23:59 on Sunday 17 May 2020.
