Quotes from Recent Interns in response to the question "What are the positives of the job and employer?"

"Good work environment."

"They did not make me do the boring repetitive tasks as much as the other employees did, instead they gave me all the special projects that involved web design. Being able to 'recruit' employees from others sections such as graphics design to help you complete a project with their skills that you do not possess."

"Use statistics knowledge I am learning at University."

"I enjoyed working at Australian Bureau of Statistics. It gave me great exposure in IT. My team leader and co-workers were supportive. I got feedback on my performance. Training was structured and well prepared. Great social events out and in the office."
