You’ll need to complete a minimum of 150 credit points before you can commence your placement.
You’ll earn these by completing the units (subjects) that make up your Professional Degree. Once completed, you’ll get access to an online learning module, Career Start, to help you apply for a placement.
After completing Career Start, you’ll gain access to a list of available placements related to your area of study. You can also seek out your own placement.
Securing a placement is a competitive process and relies on the quality of your résumé, cover letter, academic record, interview skills and sometimes a portfolio (all of which Career Start will help you with). Each industry will have a slightly different interview and screening process that may involve job interviews, group assessments and other tasks.
