HACCI - Sharing Experience and Wisdom...Giving Young People an Opportunity
A little more than a year ago HACCI embarked on a mission to forge links between the Greek business community and Greek youth to create opportunities that could provide young Greeks with a means to gaining elusive and valuable work experience in the business & professional arena.
At that time, a group of motivated people at HACCI had begun working to create the HACCI Internship Program and significant progress was made in building the infrastructure and bringing together the resources required to launch the program in early 2011.
The HACCI Internship Program
Essentially, the HACCI Internship Program facilitates the linking of young people in our community with businesses, professionals and all types of organisations that are willing to offer an internship. It’s a new and unique initiative that gives young people an opportunity to be placed with a quality organisation for a set period of time. During this time, they will receive quality skills training, work experience and mentoring from their host. HACCI will also offer support and mentoring to candidates during their internship.
The internship program is primarily aimed at people between the ages of 18 and 25 and covers all industries. Internships are specifically tailored to the needs of any potential host-organisation. To the best of HACCI’s knowledge, this is the first program of its kind in the Hellenic Australian community and HACCI is committed to ensuring that is sustainable in the long term.
When HACCI set out to discuss the vision for the program, the consensus was that if HACCI could give just one young person a life changing opportunity, then it will be able to succeed in its mission.
HACCI was proud to announce at its recent Excellence Awards Gala Ball event that the Internship Program is now a reality!
What are the benefits for you?
• Training: Acquire valuable skills, work practices and experience the business culture from the role undertaken in the host-organisation.
• Experience: Obtain valuable work experience and ‘know-how’.
• Mentorship: Receive personal mentorship from your host-organisation as well as an experienced HACCI representative throughout the term of the internship.
• Possible employment opportunities: Some host organisations may, at their discretion, offer the possibility of continued employment of credit for future study
• Relationships and networks: Develop new friendships & professional networks.
• Recognition: Receive a certificate of completion that will be presented at the HACCI Gala Ball in the presence of the Hellenic Business Community.
Currently, there are eight host organisations offering several exciting internship positions, with many more waiting to come on board.
The first intern, NUGAS’ very own Phillip Vassiliadis, the Editor of this publication, was the first intern to be placed with the legal firm Moray & Agnew in August 2011. Following Phillip’s internship, he was subsequently offered a permanent position in the firm and Phillip is extremely grateful for the opportunity:
"I would like to thank HACCI for giving me an opportunity that will be the first real step in my career. The internship program has opened doors for me that I would not be able to access in such a highly competitive course. As a result of the program, I have been able to develop valuable skills and experience that will give me a solid foundation for professional life. I commend HACCI on their efforts in one of the most valuable contributions to Greek-Australian youth." - Phillip Vassiliadis
Looking to the future
As the Internship Program enters into its second year, HACCI’s focus will be on spreading the message about the opportunities being created to the Greek youth in our community. HACCI intends to strengthen the Internship Program’s presence throughout the NUGAS networks and reach out to Greek schools, sporting clubs, youth groups, church groups & other youth networks. HACCI’s goal is to grow the Internship Program’s profile within the youth community and keep increasing the number of applications, interviews and interns placed.
How to Participate
HACCI would like to thank NUGAS for supporting the HACCI Internship Program initiative and it welcomes all NUGAS members to spread the word about the opportunities being generated by HACCI with the generous support of the Greek business community.
Through the Internship Program, HACCI’s aim is to provide organisations with the opportunity to be introduced to new talent whilst supporting the youth in our community... an investment in our future. The HACCI Internship Program is free, it is simple and it could present you with an opportunity of a lifetime. Don’t hesitate, participate!
