Fame Is Not The Aim: 5 Successful Creative Careers
By JMC Academy
CQUniversity has some of the best full-time employment outcomes for its graduates in Australia.*
In fact, CQUniversity is ranked among the top four universities in Australia for undergraduate full-time employment with 80.6 percent of graduates finding full-time employment within three months of graduation. This figure is more than 10 percent higher than the national average.
Employers increasingly want to see relevant industry experience in the graduates they hire. According to an annual survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a staggering 95 percent of employers said experience is a major factor in hiring decisions.
A common question from many prospective graduates is ‘how do I get industry experience if I am still studying’? At CQUniversity, we believe the answer is choosing a university, which can offer students an internship as part of their course.
At CQUniversity, we have introduced internships into the most popular courses for international students.
The internship program at CQUniversity is unique as;
“Joining Capgemini as an intern gave me the opportunity to work in a professional environment. As an intern, I was not just there to get coffee or run errands but I was there to gain actual work experience. The internship helped to teach me more about the career path that I am pursuing. Think of it like this – internships are a way to test drive possible jobs and explore different career options.
My most memorable moment came when I was offered a full-time position within my internship company. I would definitely recommend every student to undertake an internship because they are a proven way to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connections in the field. Internships are also a way to get your feet wet and find out if a specific field is something you could see yourself doing as a full-time job.”
