FAQs

Can I customise my own internship?

When you enrol, in your enrolment form you can specify your:

– Days (e.g every Monday and Thursday) and time (e.g. morning, afternoon, or both)
– Host Company Geographic Location Preference at least 3 preferred cities
– Duration
– Preferred tasks / duties / role / responsibilities
– Internship start date / end date

AIPP completely customise your internship to how you want it to be.

How long would it take for AIPP to find me an internship?

AIPP’s average placement for Accounting, Financial Planning, Admin, IT, Marketing and so much more takes about 2 weeks to organise (depending on how quickly you complete AIPP’s compulsory resume and interview training components).

However, for Engineering, Engineering placements in general are very rare and difficult to find (especially for international students as host companies are nervous to spend their time training and developing an individual they are concerned might leave their organisation after the training as many host companies only take interns if they have plans to develop them and hire them).

Due to the difficulty and complexity of this placement, the program fee for Engineering internship is higher than the other industries and it would take about 2-3 weeks to organise this placement. As per AIPP terms and conditions, if AIPP is unable to organise an Internship Placement for the student within 60 days, AIPP would provide a refund.

What is the recommended internship duration?

AIPP lets you choose how long you want to do the internship, but AIPP always recommends a 12 week duration. The reason for this is 12 weeks is enough time for you to receive a significant amount of training from the host company, show your qualities.

It is frequent that after a host company has spent 12 weeks of time investing in training a candidate, the chance that that host company will want to retain you in an ongoing capacity as a paid employee increases dramatically

Additionally, a duration any shorter than 12 weeks has much less of an impact on your resume. So it is always best to complete your internship if you can.

Does AIPP organise paid internships?

Generally speaking, most people in Australia start their career by doing internships and internships are generally unpaid.

The reason people do internships is because employers in Australia expect people to have work experience before they will consider hiring / paying the person. This is because they want to see you have a proven “track record” of success to justify providing you payment.

In this regard, internships are a natural part of your (practical) skill development that proves to employers your ability to deliver value to their organisation, and thereby justify and interest them in hiring / employing / paying you.

Until you prove yourself, you can expect you will not receive offers of employment.

What is the chance of being offered a job after the completion of internship?

The chance of getting a job through your current internship is not something AIPP can guarantee on. It depends on a variety of factors like:

  1. Your performance
  2. How well you fit with the staff at the company
  3. The industry you’re entering
  4. Etc

That being said, the rate of host companies offering interns employment upon the completion of their program is HIGH because after investing 3 months of time in training you, very often companies would prefer to hire you and keep you rather than having to find a new staff and start training them all over again.

What happens if I fail the interview(s) with my possible host for an internship?

AIPP’s proven training and internship programs are custom designed to develop you to succeed in this currently very challenging employment market so you can achieve the career success you deserve and have already worked so hard for.

One of the inclusions of The AIPP Professional Internship Program is Interview training. That’s a 5x one-to-one interview practice sessions with AIPP specialist trainers. So AIPP can guarantee that you will do very well during your interviews.

The maximum number of interviews is three (3). The interviews will be done either via phone or face-face. By far, 99% is done through the latter. If you fail the first interview, AIPP will organise your 2nd interview, then third. Sometimes AIPP organise more, with no charge. The reason AIPP have a limit of 3 interviews is to protect AIPP as a company and AIPP’s relationships with the host company partners from the poor conduct of candidates e.g. showing up to interviews late, missing interviews, being rude, etc.

If you fail the 3 interviews, that means you have been disqualified from eligibility of refund by not being accepted after attending 3 interviews at separate Host Company Partners. – this is in accordance with AIPP’s Terms and Conditions.

The upside of this is that 95% of AIPP’s customers pass their first interview. Only 2-3% of customers fail all three (3) interviews. So this is not something that you need to worry about because AIPP have world-class trainers who will help you nail the interviews.

If I find a full-time job in my field while you are looking for an interview, am I qualified for a refund?

By enrolling to the AIPP Professional Internship Program, you’re agreeing to the AIPP Professional Internship Program terms and conditions, and basically telling us that you’re a reliable, responsible person who is committed to the program, and we can trust you to uphold your side of the agreement such that if we risk our reputation by recommending you to our host company partners for internship and potentially employment opportunities, you will deliver on your side of our agreement, not pull out part-way, destroying our reputation and relationships with our host company partners that have been built over many years.

In this respect, no, you would not be eligible for a refund if you pull out of the program as you would be quite severely breaching the purpose and agreement upon which the program is built.

I’m currently trying to decide whether to join AIPP’s program, or join a Professional Year Program (PY).
How can I know which one is right for me?

AIPP’s Professional Internship Program is not a PY program.

Which program is right for you depends on your goals and personal circumstances.

Some factors you should consider include:

  1. 1.Some PY providers may recognise your internship with AIPP, so you may not need to do an internship through a PY provider if you decide to join a PY program after doing your Professional Internship Program with AIPP (you will need to consult your PY provider in the future whether they will give you credit for doing your Professional Internship with AIPP or not)
  2. PY Programs are only available in industries:
    Engineering
    Accounting
    IT
    However, AIPP’s Professional Internship Program is available in every industry, Australia-wide.
  3. PY programs primarily focus on getting you +5 migration points, not on employability development or employment opportunities.
    AIPP’s Professional Internship Program, however, focuses on providing you specifically the professional work experience you want to gain, while boosting your employability and exposing you to employment opportunities whenever possible.
