“As a kid, getting new toys was my favourite time of the year, not to play with them like a normal kid but to pull them apart to see how they worked.”

Todd Crawford, CareerTrackers 2017 Intern of the Year

What is CareerTrackers?

Start your future today.

CareerTrackers links Indigenous university students with employers for paid, multi-year internships. Each student completes internships in uni breaks with one of our excellent partner organisations, matched to their career aspirations and their degrees.

The end goal is to convert an internship to a full-time position upon graduation, and 95% of interns are in full-time employment in their field within three months of graduation.

In the meantime the experience gained is invaluable – alongside their education, our Alumni have relevant industry exposure, skills and workplace mentors before they graduate.

In addition to creating lasting employment opportunities, CareerTrackers provides a wide spectrum of support, from support to complete university – which 89% of participants have done – to training that prepares students for leadership in the workplace and the community.

CareerTrackers interns have a proven advantage – the median weekly income of our Alumni is $1192, close to double the median Australian weekly income of $662 and far outstripping the $441 median weekly income of Indigenous Australians.

Who is in the CareerTrackers Community?

Your path. Your choices.
Your future.

In our 10th year, we’re celebrating the hundreds of Alumni in our community. By 2020, that Alumni community will be 1073-strong.

CareerTrackers interns are Indigenous students who study full-time at university. We currently support students across all years of study and a wide range of degrees. Some of the most popular degrees are:

  • Agriculture and Environment
  • Architecture, Design and Planning
  • Arts and Social Sciences
  • Business / Commerce
  • Engineering and Information Technologies
