LifeBridge Institute

We need your help

With the pandemic and economic disruption, we have a couple of thousand students in Perth who have completed their degree studies but are waiting to graduate because they cannot get appropriate internships to complete their course requirements. We also have many mid-career engineers laid off from projects and even major companies. LifeBridge is a voluntary, non-profit organisation I helped set up to bring these people together with smaller businesses interested in helping out. The idea is to build on engineering practice research at UWA to give the students a head start in their careers. We will use this research to rapidly develop their professional skills and employability under the guidance of volunteer mid-career engineers. The aim is to get as many as possible working in small project teams, developing ideas for local companies in Perth. I need help from engineer volunteers (employed, looking for work themselves, or retired and willing to help). In the process they will acquire new professional capabilities that will make them more attractive for companies hiring them as project opportunities emerge. We at LifeBridge also need your help to pass the word out to students and graduates looking for paid engineering work, particularly international students who have a tough time finding internships.
