Australia Events Internships now available with major music, sporting, cultural, arts events, festivals and more.
Austin, Texas, 04 March 2014 As many college and university students have already made spring break plans, even more are thinking about what to do for the summer months ahead, which usually includes working to earn money and gain experience. Alliance Abroad launches a new program where young Americans eligible for a Working Holiday Visa in Australia can now apply for a full-time paid internship for events being held in Australia.
The events industry is the fastest growing sector of the world leisure industry. As it asserts itself as a dynamic, knowledge led and cultural profession, it needs the world’s creative and organizational talent. This is a great opportunity to tune into the very latest trends in an industry worth $17 billion to the Aussie economy. Employers are seeking international experience in creative and communications industries. As an Event Industry Expert, I can attest to the fact that having a strong global network and building the confidence that comes from experiencing overseas culture will give you a unique competitive edge.

We are thrilled to add this exciting program to our ever increasing portfolio. Our list of quality employers keep growing and when we identified a niche to continue fostering cross-cultural relationships and in the first-rate events industry in Australia, in particularly Melbourne, we jumped at the chance to do this. Our point of difference is that we’ll be focusing on amazing paid internships in the most livable city in the world. The demand for this is already phenomenal and the support has been tremendous.
Ash Jurberg, Director of Alliance Abroad International.
Alliance Abroad’s Paid Internships vary in Australia Events Management, Communications, Business and Operations, Visual Art & Design, and more for various major events, festivals, and conferences. These internships are conveniently available year round, with the specific events participants will be interning for being subject to season. While Alliance Abroad is focusing on opportunities in Melbourne (Australian Open, Grand Prix Formula One, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Big Day Out Music Festival, to name a few), the world’s most livable city for the last 3 years in a row and the Australian Event Capital, there are plans to continue expanding into other Australian cities to provide even more opportunities for event management students and young professionals to gain invaluable knowledge working for some of the best events and event companies in the world.
