Destination Melbourne is excited to share an update we recently received from RMIT University about the potential for their student interns to help shape the Melbourne visitor industry. RMIT is looking to partner with businesses and organisations in our industry to help recruit their third year Business students in the areas of marketing, IT, logistics, finance and accounting.
The interns undertake their placements in a full-time role in your business, for a minimum of eight months. They receive a modest salary of around $38,000 (plus super), and RMIT manages all elements of their insurance and recruitment process.
Our industry has a proud history of hiring interns from a number of universities around Melbourne, with some of these recruits going on to be leaders of Melbourne’s visitor economy.
Plus, because of the entrepreneurial thinking and enthusiasm that students bring to the workplace, employers often choose to keep them on after their internship. In the case of RMIT Business students, this usually involves the student completing their final year of study part-time.
If you’re looking to hire a junior staff member, or for further information about hiring an RMIT University intern, contact Chris Thompson at RMIT on 9925 5906 or at [email protected].
