“Monash is one of the leading universities in the country, and you can see the passion that goes into the Industry Based Learning program, and the genuine desire to give students the practical experience in a corporate environment.
“Australia Post has been heavily involved in the Monash IT IBL program for a number of years, and it has been beneficial to us and to the IBL students. They bring leading edge practice from Monash to AusPost, whilst we give them the practical and professional skills essential for a successful career.
We offer graduate positions to the vast majority of our Monash IBL students, and we give them the opportunity to continue with us part-time while they finish their studies.”
