A new study, supported by J.P. Morgan, found that 94% of students taking part in the CareerTrackers internship program in Australia successfully completed university, more than double the national average for Australian indigenous university students.
By providing workplace training and experience, the program is giving students a competitive advantage when applying for jobs in the private sector.
97% of CareerTrackers interns questioned for the social impact study said the program gave them the motivation to perform well at university.
J.P. Morgan has pledged to support private sector internship opportunities for 300 indigenous students, with the expectation that at least 200 will secure full-time quality employment upon graduation.
Through a combination of pre-employment and skill-specific development training, the CareerTrackers program prepares indigenous students to enter the workforce, equipping them with essential tools and ongoing professional mentoring for building a successful career.
