If this sounds like you, why not try surveying on for size?
Register your details below and we’ll make enquiries on your behalf. You could also ring surveying firms in your local area and ask if they have any placements available.
Work experience can really lead you places! Just ask Michael Baker, who used his surveying work experience placement to launch into tertiary study – and into a real surveying job teamed with the surveyors he first met as a work experience student. Learn more about Michael’s story.
Please note that depending on projects undertaken by the host firm, students may be required to hold a general construction induction “white card”, allowing access to building and construction sites. When applying for a work experience placement, please remember that you will need to allow six weeks prior to your preferred dates; this is also to ensure you have sufficient time to get a white card through face-to-face training. A range of TAFE courses provide this short course training. The training ensures compliance with safety and prevention regulations in the construction industry. We suggest students speak with their career advisors to find out which nearby TAFE or other institution they recommend.
Please note this service is currently available for Vic, NSW, ACT, Qld and WA applicants.
