CareerSeekers Internship Program fact sheet

The Victorian Government is committed to welcoming our newest arrivals and recognises the rich contribution people from refugee backgrounds can make to our community - socially, culturally and economically.

Over the next few years, Victoria will welcome an increasing number of people from refugee backgrounds including people seeking asylum. People from refugee backgrounds often face barriers to gaining employment, despite significant experience and qualifications outside of Australia. The CareerSeekers internship program aims to break down these barriers, provide opportunities and honour skills, knowledge and experience.
