Work experience of a lifetime competition

At Victoria University (VU) we are renowned for presenting our tertiary students with outstanding work placements through our high-profile industry connections. Now, for the second year running, we are offering Victorian Year 10 and 11 students the same advantage.

Our unique Work Experience of a Lifetime initiative gives students the chance to win an unforgettable work experience placement at one of Australia’s top companies. Last year was a huge success, with the winning students spending one week at Leo Burnett, The Just Group, Nova 100, Honda and The Mushroom Group - industry-leading companies that would otherwise have been out of their reach.

This year, the successful students will once again be rewarded with in-depth, hands-on experience in an exciting company that matches their study interests.

2015 work experience companies

Helping to guide the students on their "path to victory" this year are:

  • Nova - Melbourne’s number one FM Station
  • Mushroom Group - music industry icon
  • Leo Burnett - international advertising agency
  • Bonds - iconic Australian fashion brand
  • Hacer Group - leading building design and construction company
  • HM Group - award-winning design agency
  • Quest Apartments - international holiday property brand.

How to apply

Every Victorian year 10 and 11 student has the chance to win a placement. All they need to do is submit a photo or video that creatively expresses their passion for their chosen industry.

The competition closes at 3pm on Friday 29 May 2015.
