Programming internships are a popular way for Australian companies to find new talent. By participating in Industry Connect’s programming internships, you increase your chances of being hired by one of the top software companies in Australia.

Why Australian IT companies come to us

Employers come to us for many reasons, but the most important ones are time and resources. Hiring a new employee can be a lengthy and expensive process that companies simply do not have the luxury of.

By partnering with Industry Connect, they can avoid the long process of advertising, reviewing CVs, conducting multiple interviews, and selecting a candidate. Instead, they can come directly to us and we will provide them with a list of suitable interns to choose from. We can also showcase examples of their work, making the selection process much easier.

Another advantage of hiring through programming internships is that it increases the chances of finding a suitable candidate who will remain with the company for an extended period. According to studies, companies that hire interns are 40% more likely to retain employees for five years or more. This is beneficial for both the employee and the employer, and is a significant incentive for companies to come to Industry Connect for fresh talent.

They want experience, not qualifications

Experience is the key when it comes to hiring interns. Employers know that by hiring an intern, they are getting someone with practical experience who has dealt with real-life clients, good and bad, and has worked with other people. This experience gives interns a significant advantage over other applicants and makes them a safer bet for employers to hire.

Industry Connect’s programming internships are an excellent way for IT students in Australia to start their career in software development. Our courses are tailored to meet your needs and come with connections and partnerships throughout the industry. Our goal is to help you find a job at the end of your internship, and local businesses know that we are the go-to place for fresh talent without the hassle.

In New Zealand, our programming internships have been very successful, with hundreds of graduates and immigrants finding work through our program.
