Outsource 2 Us Provides Internship Positions To QUT Students
Queensland University of Technology understands how important it is for their students to have real world experience on their resume along with their degree. This is why the university has ensured to put in place a study unit that is purely dedicated to students securing an internship within their final year of study.
Outsource 2 Us has been a dependable participant in this program, and has built a reputation for providing invaluable experience to numerous students at QUT every semester. We continue to offer internship positions to students, as we are passionate about giving young prospective professionals the experience they need.
We’re also aware of the benefits these students bring to us, as we gain insights to the latest theoretical trends in marketing, design, IT, and media and communication, but they also add value for our clients, as we can offer extra support to them at no extra cost, so we are happy to have these students under our wing.
QUT students come to us with aims and objectives they wish to accomplish during their time with us, and we make a point of meeting and exceeding these according to each student’s strengths and interests.
Each intern is given the opportunity to work closely with team members relevant to their interests and field of study. By being involved with our team’s vast experience and diverse backgrounds, there is no doubt each intern gains valuable insights. Due to having so many QUT interns come in, we have developed different approaches to get the most out of each intern, and hopefully have them leave us with a better idea of what it is they see themselves doing in the next few years of their lives.
Each semester there are design, media and communications, marketing, and public relations students who join the team, ready to get real world experience they aren’t able to receive in the classroom.
In the past, we’ve been so impressed with students’ performances that their internship position eventuated in a paid position with us. Veronica Costas who studied a double degree in Marketing and Media and Communications, and Pip Noble who also studied a double degree in Marketing and PR at QUT are prime examples of outstanding employees who once started out as interns. Veronica is now in charge of content marketing and copywriting, and Pip is one of our Marketing Managers.
After speaking with students who are currently completing their internship hours here at Outsource to Us, it is safe to say there is nothing but positive feedback that comes through.
“Being in the creative industries faculty, I have had plenty of practice in creative writing, this revolved a lot of around the impact of media as well as a lot of personal opinion and reflection pieces. From my time at Outsource to Us, I can confidently say that is has been a different experience from university in terms of writing about different topics as they have a large range of clients to satisfy. This has been especially interesting for me and has challenged me to complete tasks within a much shorter time frame and work outside my comfort zone.”

“As an aspiring designer, gaining work experience is important to building the foundations for my professional career. This internship at Outsource 2 Us has given me the opportunity to test my repertoire of design skills, as I begin to make the transition from a learning environment onto a working environment. I enjoy the challenge of having so many variables to keep up with, and it’s great to experience everything I was taught up to this point beginning to make sense – so many more things are at stake and I’m faced with less room for errors. Not only am I benefitting from essential work experience, this internship also serves as a platform for me to self-criticise and further develop skills that will become pertinent to my future.”

In recognition of our involvement and contribution to the program, QUT has rewarded Outsource to Us with a certificate of appreciation. We look forward to continuing our work with QUT’s interns, and are so happy to be a part of the very start of what will certainly be brilliant careers.
