This ground-breaking study of work placements and practicums looks at the experience of 50 young short-term trainees in various Australian work settings. Based on taped interviews with trainees in business, education, engineering, IT and nursing, it reveals the issues, challenges and rewards for undergraduates beginning to make the transition to work in their chosen profession. It also shines a revealing light on Australian employers and workplaces, and how they can make a traineeship valuable for bosses, colleagues and trainees.
