  • preparing PowerPoint presentations
  • using bookkeeping, accounting and billing systems
  • general reception duties and customer service skills
  • documenting and organising administration procedures

Attend a registration session and discuss your individual business needs with the lecturers of various courses.

Is my business a good fit for this placement?

You’d need to ensure that students had:

  • a meaningful range of tasks
  • an appropriate space at which to work
  • adequate supervision.

Past participants

Jason Radolnik and Jordan Kagan Gescheit, from Detector Inspector, say the program was great for their business.

“We found the program highly beneficial and were very impressed with both the coordination of the program and with the student, who was professional, reliable and a great cultural fit. We are delighted to now offer the student ongoing employment with our organisation, something we were not anticipating.”
