Top 5 Reasons to Intern in Australia

Internships are a great way to gain real world experience in your field. Internships can validate your career choice and assist in developing a professional network. In a highly competitive employment market, the experience gained from an internship can provide an important edge.  International internships offer additional value. They offer the opportunity of international experience in a new country or culture from a secure vantage point.

If you are interested in interning in another country, Australia offers some tempting prospects. What are some of the top reasons to find an international internship in Australia?

  1. English Language: Whether you are a native English language speaker or not, English is recognized globally as the “linga franca” or our time. It is the most commonly spoken language around the world: one out of five people can speak or understand English. English is the language of science, of aviation, computers, diplomacy, and tourism. If you already speak English, Australia is an easy fit; it is also a great place to improve English skills.
  2. Resume Building: Having experience working abroad can make your job application stand out to potential employers. The world is increasingly globalized and employers are seeking people who have successful experience in culturally diverse settings. Australia has a western orientation, but it is also influenced by cultures from around the world, to include strong Asian influences, as well as their own important indigenous culture. Working in Australia demonstrates your ability to adjust and adapt to numerous cultural differences.
  3. Natural Beauty and Travel Opportunities: Australia boasts a world-famous coastline and exciting, dynamic cities famous for being youthful and hospitable. The country boasts over 10,685 beaches, over 500 national parks and more than 8000 islands. Numerous opportunities exist in world-class cities Sydney and Melbourne (and both are routinely rated as some of the most livable cities in the world!) Although the country is large, the majority of tourism is located along the coast and easily accessible from most locations. Visitors from any other country will find a landscape that is unique.
  4. Economy & Work Opportunities: The booming economy and low unemployment rate in Australia mean there are many professional opportunities. The best positions are competitive but numerous opportunities exist.
  5. A Warm Welcome: Australia is receptive to welcoming students and temporary workers with a generous visa program and the most flexible Working Holiday Visa programs in the world.


Internships provide real world experiences that are impressive to future employers. Working abroad further demonstrates your resilience and independence. If you are seeking this sort of opportunity, Australia may be a perfect fit.
