Many large companies offer formal Internships or Vacation work to students during the summer break, usually just before starting the final year of their program. These placements are valuable experiences where you can develop your professional knowledge and skills in the industry.
While internships are advertised in numerous locations, including directly from employers, RMIT offers a system called the RMIT Careers Online Portal to help its students find an internship.
RMIT Vietnam's Flagship Internship program responds to the need for a unified approach in providing work experience to students.
The program uses principles and frameworks to guide high-impact pedagogy around internship experiences for domestic students, and in preparing to accommodate international students wishing to uptake a placement in Asia.
Internships involve the completion of targeted interdisciplinary workshops which include personalised learning outcomes, guidance, and negotiated assessment structures.

Most students take part in internships at the end of a program, allowing students to easily transition into full-time employment. However, there are a few exceptions.
Students of each program have a different requirement of minimum internship period. Typical duration is between 12-15 weeks.
Plan ahead. Applications for formal holiday work programs take time to complete, and some summer programs close from about mid-year. Other opportunities can be advertised at any time, so keep an eye out on CareerHub and other resources.
