Take on an intern from Curtin Business School

If you’re looking for a new perspective or an extra professional to get your project across the finish line, a Curtin Business School (CBS) student intern could step in to lend a hand.

The CBS Business Internship program is run in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia and allows CBS students to work towards a real outcome and gain valuable work experience while helping you meet your business goals.

A CBS business internship student can help in many ways, including:

  • conducting research
  • scoping the viability of new projects
  • developing programs
  • supporting the implementation of new systems
  • revising marketing strategies
  • assisting with an upcoming event
  • analysing data and trends.

Internship lengths can be flexible depending on your business needs and can take place outside the university calendar.

How does it work?

An internship can be hugely beneficial to both your organisation and the student. Arranging a placement is easy; there are five simple steps:

  1. Fill out an expression of interest on the CBS website.
  2. CBS Industry Connect will get in touch to:
    • arrange a visit to your workplace
    • confirm the scope of the project(s)
    • meet your proposed in-house mentor who is experienced in the field and able to support the student during their placement.
  3. The role is advertised to CBS students. CBS Industry Connect will interview eligible students and provide you with a shortlist to run your own interviews from.
  4. A student(s) is placed with you and undertakes their 100 to 150 hour internship (unpaid). An in-house mentor from your organisation will provide guidance to the student(s) over the course of the placement.
  5. At the end of the internship you will fill out an employer appraisal form for the student(s) you worked with.

We will keep in touch with you throughout the placement to ensure both you and the student are happy.
