The Internship Process
As a Platypus Intern, you'll benefit from an exceptional level of support before, during and after your Internship.
When you Register we assign you an internship coordinator who will manage your internship placement from start to finish. Your coordinator will contact you by email / Skype / phone to get to know you personally and discuss your requirements for the internship. We help you construct a CV to present to host companies and prepare you for your initial interviews. We organise your Working Holiday Visa, Aussie bank account and mobile SIM card and will be available to answer all your questions.
Arrival in Australia. Platypus will arrange the essentials so your first week in Sydney is hassle-free and lots of fun. We'll take care of your airport transfer and accommodation. Your coordinator will meet with you and introduce you to our Group Leaders who will be with you during your Introduction Week. We will organise your shared accommodation and provide all the support you need to prepare for your first day at work.
During your internship we will maintain close communication with you and your Host Company to ensure everything runs smoothly. If you have any problems or concerns we will be on-hand to resolve them. You will be invited to regular social events, tours and activities to stay in touch with other Interns in your area.
After your internship we will help you plan your travels around Australia or find a paying job. We provide ongoing support during your entire stay in Oz!
