Start early (3 - 4 months before your expected internship start date) by preparing your application documents (resume, cover letter, academic transcript, etc.) and researching the organisations that you intend to intern at.
You are required to undertake an internship for a minimum of 40 working days. Employers may prefer a minimum commitment of 3 months or more, as longer internships provide interns with greater exposure to the organisation’s operations.
All assessment due dates for BEW3110 will be posted on Moodle.
In most instances, host organisations offer a monthly allowance or subsidise your transport costs. However, it is very rare to negotiate a salary for an internship.

* The company provides you with an internship offer (must be explicitly stated in the offer letter), not part-time employment or any other employment arrangements.
* The business is not owned by yourself or a family-member directly related to you.
Expect to progressively gain hands-on experience of the day-to-day operations of the organisation. Initially your duties may include a wide range of administrative and secretarial support – processing mail, data entry, filing, sorting through documents or scheduling appointments.
As your placement progresses, you may be assigned tasks with greater responsibility that a key member of the organisation would normally do. And if you have not been assigned enough work, speak to your supervisor about your readiness to take on more tasks or ask for more work when you have completed you current task.
