Virtual Internships with Forage

What is a virtual internship?

A simulation of the work graduates do at leading companies.

Any student, regardless of university degree, prior experience, location or year group, can now have the opportunity to experience working at some of the world’s top firms.

How does it work?

Get briefed online – do work that mirrors real life.

  • A virtual internship contains modules of tasks from the different divisions of the company you choose.
  • View video instructions from actual employees.
  • Access curated resources to help you in the task.
  • Submit work that reflects actual day to day tasks.

How long does it take?

It takes 5 - 6 hours to complete one program.

Why do it?

Not only will you build up the practical skill set employers are looking for, but upon completion you can put the company-branded virtual internship on your CV.

Virtual internships are a terrific first step, allowing you to build your confidence and experience within the Australian landscape.

Do it in your own time, at your pace, wherever your laptop takes you.

What you will gain?

Digital experience: Learn the latest in business development, data analytics and digital marketing.
Global networks: Work alongside colleagues from different cultures, time zones and markets, using cloud based tools.
Business skills: Use your innovative ideas and experience to solve real business problems and help shape a company’s future.
