Testimonials

Take the opportunity! My internship was the perfect fit for what I was looking to achieve. The staff involved in supporting me throughout the internship were professional, friendly and helpful, adding to the value of the internship as well! The experience is invaluable and it is such an affordable way to undertake an overseas work experience. I am so glad I undertook a virtual internship with CISaustralia.

- Ellie P., University of Tasmania, Virtual Internship in the USA

I thoroughly enjoyed my internship experience. I was able to gain much valuable technical knowledge in my field and build on the foundations of what I’ve learned at University. On top of this, I gained many important transferrable skills such as cross-cultural awareness, self-efficacy, communication and time management skills. I’d highly recommend a virtual internship with CISaustralia to anyone looking to strengthen their resume and gain valuable skills and experiences.

- Mart V., University of Western Australia, Virtual Internship in China

Definitely recommend doing a virtual international internship during COVID times. I learned a lot about my field and was able to apply theoretical teachings from my degree to real-life projects… I think it’s essential to experience the virtual/online working environment because everyone will have to do a Zoom call at least once in their career.

- Tatum I., University of Newcastle, Virtual Internship in Japan

Thank you so much! I enjoyed the experience and am incredibly grateful to have been given this opportunity. Keep an open mind going in as the internship might not be exactly what you expect, especially when it is virtual. However, it has exceeded my expectations and you learn so much. Everyone is incredibly nice and very helpful. Enjoy the experience because it goes by really quickly.

- Matildah D., Australian Catholic University, Virtual Internship in the USA

A virtual internship program is a great gateway internship, particularly in a time of increasingly remote work and learning. This program enables you to meet people from different countries and life experiences and gain valuable experience researching, learning and communicating digitally.
