Vacation Program and Jobs
Today many students are looking to complement theory-based studies with practical on the job experience.
Whether it’s about getting project experience or picking up a thesis topic, you’ll benefit from exposure to real-world challenges and finding innovative solutions.
It’s also worth knowing that each year a number of students who have successfully completed vacation work placements with Thiess have also been offered places in our annual graduate program. So, if you’re interested in a career with Thiess, vacation work is often a really great way to get started.
