ECU SBL Work Integrated Learning Programs | Semester 1, 2020 — Expressions of Interest

ECU is cur­rent­ly in the process of recruit­ing and screen­ing poten­tial Work-Inte­grat­ed Learn­ing Pro­gram stu­dents ready for Semes­ter 1, 2020, and have had some excel­lent stu­dents apply across a vari­ety of dis­ci­plines.

ECU cur­rent­ly has two WIL pro­grams for Semes­ter 1, 2020 are:

  1. Place­ment:   100-hour unpaid work place­ment that is typ­i­cal­ly struc­tured as one or two days per week over 13 weeks.
  2. Intern­ship:    600-hour work place­ment, where stu­dents work for 16 weeks on a full-time basis; 8 weeks unpaid and the final 8 weeks paid.

 They have received appli­ca­tions from the fol­low­ing stu­dents who are study­ing:

  • Account­ing
  • Man­age­ment
  • Mar­ket­ing
  • HRM
  • Finance
  • Sports or Recre­ation
  • Tourism
  • Hotel or Hos­pi­tal­i­ty Man­age­ment
  • Event Man­age­ment
  • Project Man­age­ment
  • Inter­na­tion­al Busi­ness
  • Law
  • Man­age­ment Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems
  • Gen­er­al­ist

Stu­dents are ini­tial­ly screened for Good Aca­d­e­m­ic Stand­ing and must meet behav­iour­al stan­dards based on Psy­cho­me­t­ric Assess­ment.  Suc­cess­ful stu­dents are then invit­ed to par­take in an indus­try stan­dard­ised Recruit­ment Work­shop, where they are assessed on pro­fes­sion­al­ism, per­son­al pre­sen­ta­tion, a team work activ­i­ty and net­work­ing social skills.

There are many ben­e­fits to host­ing one of our Work-Inte­grat­ed Learn­ing Pro­gram stu­dents, includ­ing:

  • Access moti­vat­ed, enthu­si­as­tic stu­dents with new ideas
  • Com­plete exist­ing or com­mence new projects
  • Devel­op your staff lead­er­ship capac­i­ty through men­tor­ing and coach­ing
  • Tri­al prospec­tive grad­u­ate employ­ees

Next steps:

If you would like to host a stu­dent for Semes­ter 1:

24th Feb­ru­ary – 29th May 2020

  1. Please com­plete this Expres­sion of Inter­est form as soon as pos­si­ble and before 9th Octo­ber;
  2. We will then select can­di­dates based on stu­dents’ pref­er­ences that are best matched to the cri­te­ria that you out­line in the EOI form;
  3. If a suit­able candidate(s) is matched, we will email you (usu­al­ly with­in 8 weeks) the student’s Linkedin Pro­file and their short Intro­duc­tion Video for your review;
  4. You can then con­duct your own recruit­ment process­es that may include a face to face inter­view;
  5. Please noti­fy us of your deci­sion via email;
  6. We will then request that you com­plete a Con­fir­ma­tion and Super­vi­sor details form; and
  7. Stu­dent will then start their place­ment with you no lat­er than 2nd March 2020

Please note:

  • A key part of being a host organ­i­sa­tion is hav­ing appro­pri­ate supervision/coaching. For exam­ple: many busi­ness­es are look­ing for sup­port in the dig­i­tal and social mar­ket­ing space but may not have the super­vi­sion that is required to facil­i­tate the learn­ing ele­ment of a mar­ket­ing student’s place­ment;
  • We strive to pro­vide stu­dent can­di­dates for all organ­i­sa­tions that offer place­ments; how­ev­er, we are lim­it­ed by the num­ber of stu­dents that apply. We apol­o­gise in advance if we can­not con­tact you with suit­able can­di­dates; and
  • Place­ments will need to com­mence no lat­er than 2nd March 2020 and will end approx­i­mate­ly 29th May 2020 depen­dant on the type of WIL Pro­gram.

If you would like any fur­ther infor­ma­tion, please do not hes­i­tate to get in touch.
