Summer Internships in Dunedin

By Emma Turner | Posted: Thursday August 16, 2018

Are you an Otago University or Polytechnic student looking for a summer internship? Check out the 2018 Sexy Summer Jobs internships!

Sexy Summer Jobs is a programme that allows tertiary students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience with local businesses. There are many reasons to get involved such as;

  • You will get paid for the work that you do

  • You are gaining experience in a real-world environment

  • In previous years, one in two interns is offered a full-time position with the business after the duration of the internship.

  • You are able to build relationships with local business and industry experts

  • You have the opportunity to add value to their business by working with experienced teams.

The local businesses scout their interns through a round of speed interviews, this year to be held on the 19th of September. The interviews are 5 minutes in length which allows the businesses to talk with the potential interns about their business needs and then for the students to create a conversation around their skills that they could bring to the table. Each business will have the chance to meet with 19 potential candidates, so you’ve got to make sure you stand out! For some tips and pointers on how you can prepare, check out our article, What Employers Look for in a Job Interview.

If you are interested in this awesome programme - registrations for the speed interviews are now open so go and check it out here!
