One tricky thing in Canberra is that quite a lot of IT work needs a
security clearance.

The hard part is that to get one you need a sponsor - normally an
employer. Your sponsor both pays the non-trivial admin cost of getting
the clearance and asserts that you need it for the work you will do.

So a prospective intern is at a disadvantage from the outset.

But not all IT work is directly for government or military.
