Is An IT Traineeship Or IT Apprenticeship For You?

IT Traineeships or Entry Levels IT Jobs

When leaving study, either as a school student or tertiary graduate finding full time employment is not always an easy option. To enter into a specific industry whether it is IT, web design, development, network administration, telecommunication or graphic design, there are sometimes more options when applying as a trainee or apprentice.

Here you can learn a nationally recognised qualification while gaining invaluable industry experience, placing you in good stead either in that company or elsewhere in the industry should you choose.

An IT traineeship or apprenticeship means becoming an employee of the company. Often there are government funded programs for both student and employer for traineeships within Australia. With an IT Traineeship you are guaranteed a paid work placement at least one day per week, generally up to 40 days.

Finding an entry level IT job is easier for tertiary graduates than school leavers. Although a prospering growth sector, IT still presents itself with a certain level of competitiveness when it comes to entry level positions, with weight given to applicants with IT industry experience.
