Work experience


A large number of students request work placements with TransLink each year. We are committed to supporting Queensland universities by offering places to a small number of students to join us for a semester, and are very pleased to contribute to the community in this way.

How to apply for an undergraduate work experience placement

Make sure you have approval from your university to complete a work experience placement, then download the 2015 work experience application form (PDF, 50KB) and email it with your current resume to If you are short-listed there will be an interview, then TransLink will contact applicants by phone or email to either offer you a place, or advise if you have been unsuccessful.
