Top 50 Most Popular Internships

Thousands of students each year across Australia apply for the lucrative opportunity to join some of the country’s top firms as an intern. And these aren’t the kind of internships where your main role is to make sure that the office coffee run runs smoothly. The top internships now offer their candidates real, value adding work as way to assess competency as method of feeding talent into the full time graduate entry levels roles the company offers.

Recognising the importance of internships for both students and employers has been a point of focus for GradConnection since its inception. So for the first time we are proud to announce in conjunction with the Australian Financial Review (AFR) the inaugural Top 50 Most Popular Internship Rankings.

The rankings were compiled using our data on the number of students that provided an expression of interest in internships listed on GradConnection. The greater the expressions of interest for a program, the higher the employer appears on the list. There was nearly 54,000 expressions of interest from over 18,000 unique users. Users could give an expression of interest to more than one employer’s internship program.

The Top 50 Most Popular Internships Rankings is a great way for employers to gain an indication of how their program is perceived from a student’s perspective and how strong their program’s brand is in the marketplace. For students the list provides an insight into some of the most prestigious, exciting and valuable internships available so that they can prioritize when their time comes to apply.

Congratulations to all our employers who made the list! And if you would like to be in the running for next year, make sure your internship programs are listed on GradConnection so that students can start applying.
