Perth Internships Program
Best universities: University of Western Australia, Curtin Institute of Technology High demand for: engineering, mining, ICT, consulting
The mining boom drives the high Western Australian demand for vacation workers – the state accounts for a fifth of the vacation programs offered in Australia and New Zealand, and mining engineers are by far the most in-demand anywhere in Australia. Because mining companies tend to prefer vacation work to internships, and because vacation work means they can hire from interstate (which is less possible for the shorter-running internships), the amount of internships recorded on offer is smaller proportionately.
