Who are Outcome.Life?

Outcome.Life is an Australian internship placement provider that partners with leading companies, start-ups and industries across Australia to place University students and graduates into internships.  Our mission is to enhance the employment outcomes for graduates by providing them access to practical experience.

Internships provide students with that valuable practical experience and our job, at Outcome.life, is to place you into a meaningful internship and support you through this very important initial stage of your career development.

Our diverse range of host companies are eager to bring young and enthusiastic team members into their businesses for a mutually beneficial experience. This is not a simulated environment, but a real-life experience designed to launch your career and provide you with a competitive advantage.
