The Program supports two distinct groups of refugees and asylum seekers:

Mid-career Professionals – those with tertiary qualifications and professional work experience from their country of origin, who strive to re-establish their careers in Australia. These participants undertake paid internships lasting twelve weeks that provide local experience, a local reference and help them establish a network within their chosen profession.

University students – full-time university students who undertake paid internships during university breaks, in an effort to link their studies with practical work experience. The CareerSeekers university program aligns with existing corporate internship programs.

In addition, the CareerSeekers employment model is also an easy and effective way for organisations to source quality staff, while playing their part in Australia’s resettlement efforts.
