UG Business Internship I (3001GBS)

The purpose of this course is to help students to transition from academic life to employment by providing them prior to graduation with an opportunity to apply in a workplace some of what they have learnt at university. A second but equally important aim is to raise students' awareness of the personal attributes needed to gain and sustain employment and to build a successful career. At the same time, the course provides each 'Host Organisation' with access to students with a wide range of business skills and provides an opportunity to have completed one or more projects of value. A student selected as a GBS Intern is expected to work (unpaid) on one or more agreed projects or on a range of relevant tasks at a selected organisation for one day a week for one trimester. Enrolment to this course is not automatic: applying students must meet all pre-requisites and register. They must also attend and pass a formal interview with the WIL Director or his/her delegate prior to being accepted to participate in the Internship program. If selected, students must then attend a compulsory workplace readiness program in Academic Week 1. Student - Host Organisation matching is made at the discretion of the WIL Director. This course is not available for credit based on prior studies or external activities. Students must enrol in an official GBS Business Internship Course approved as part of their Griffith degree program before commencing an external internship. Prerequisites: At the time of enrolment, prospective Interns must have completed half of their degree program. Co-requisites: Incompatibles: NIL
