Learning to Work: Students' Experiences during Work Placements
Learning to Work is based on taped interviews with trainees in business, education, engineering, IT and nursing. Jo Reidy reveals the issues, challenges and rewards for undergraduates beginning to make the transition to work in their chosen profession.
Her study also provides a revealing insight into Australian employers and workplaces, and how they can make traineeships valuable for employer, colleague and trainee.
