The opportunity 

We’re looking for Victorian young people to be interviewed for a project about transitioning into work. VicHealth and the University of Melbourne are collaborating on a research project - Transitions into Employment for Young People - to better understand the experiences of young people (aged 18-25) as they transition from education to employment. Further information about this project can be read in the Plain Language Statement here.

What will I get from this?

You’ll be contributing your experience and voice to an important issue as well as directly influencing a major piece of work for VicHealth and the University of Melbourne. You’ll also be paid $33 for the interview!

What is expected of me?

You’ll be contacted by the interviewer (also a young person!) to arrange a 30 to 45 minute telephone interview time. If you prefer for the interview to be done face to face in central Melbourne, this can be arranged and transport costs would be covered.

The interview will be recorded and information you provide will be de-identified and included as qualitative evidence in the research report. Your story may also be written up as a case study, and you may be invited to speak to media as part of launching this project (only if you provide consent).
