I had such an unforgettable internship placement. I mainly communicated with workers and case managers and sometimes had interviews with the clients. My colleagues were very nice and willing to teach me new things. I also treasured lunch time where we could relax and talk about different cultures and landmarks that we should go to in Australia. The soft skills and experience were absolutely useful and meaningful to my academia and future career.

I did this internship to gain a competitive advantage before heading into the workforce. There are a lot of applicants out there, so I thought if I had experience in the field I would be more likely to become a better candidate. I also wanted to complete the internship to find out what it was actually like to be in Human Resource. While interning there, I realised it is something that I like doing and I would want to make a career out of it. There were so many aspects of Human Resources that I didn’t know about. I found out that report writing for the government is a requirement and specific steps have to be taken to ensure that everything is done to standard. Finally, internships are so hard to come by so when the chance to do one came, I grabbed it with two hands. It’s definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and I wanted to experience it before I finished my studies. This internship has given me the upper hand for the future. Throughout this program Performance Careers has been very professional and are always happy to help with your questions and concerns. I would highly recommend an internship to others, so you can apply your studies to practice.

During my internship I learnt new things and the application of things I acquired through university. The real world is different and there’s a lot of adjustment but it is worth it. My host company was very welcoming and treated me with respect. The placement experience equipped me with knowledge that I will be able to utilise further down my career path. It gave me confidence and a positive attitude towards dealing with difficulties in the workforce. Aside from technical skills, it also enhanced my public relations, customer service and communication skills. Performance Careers fully supported and prepared me to become confident and successful. They worked endlessly to provide me with the best internship place. Performance Careers believes in their student more than the student believes in themselves!

I would recommend all students to give it a go and see if that is what you want to be doing in your future. During my internship I was involved in different projects, my mentor was very friendly, every learning curve was interesting, and Performance Careers gave me good career advice.

I would definitely recommend this internship to others who have just finished a university degree or a professional qualification. An internship sets you up and gives you an opportunity to learn and grow yourself to be a successful asset to a company. It allows for greater industry experience giving you that extra advantage in the ‘job hunting’ market. Most jobs now require prior experience. Completing an internship also offers you to meet new contacts which are useful to the industry which may offer a job at the end. Performance Careers gave me an opportunity and experience to further enhance my skills learnt at University and apply it to real life scenarios. Completing this internship I feel I have grown as a professional engineer and am ready to make proper engineering decisions. I feel without this internship, I would still be lacking the required experience needed to successfully get a full time role. As a result of the internship, I have been offered a position as a Mechanical Engineer! The internship helped me with relevant experience needed to successfully undertake this new role.

It has given me a solid foundation in IT, added to my skills, given me an edge over other graduates and increased my employability. Performance Careers is focussed on making university students and graduates employable.

My job search was greatly facilitated by my consultant who took care of everything so that my single focus was to be ready to secure a position on the day of the interview. From the very first day of my placement, I was given the chance to learn by being invited to a lot of different meetings to get in touch with every aspect of the job. The placement really opened my eyes to the world of experiential marketing. I had studied the subject in theory for a long time but on the field, you need more than just the big idea to make it happen. During this internship I was respected as a responsible professional. I would never have had the opportunity to find my dream internship without Performance Careers help.

For undergraduate students, an internship is an important step towards a solid career in the future. This is a great way to put in practice the theoretical knowledge acquired through university and learn from the mistakes that is likely to happen throughout the internship. I enjoyed the fact that I have been learning what I have seen in my university degree in a real business environment. I have improved my skills and have a broader comprehension about financial modelling. I also had the chance to analyse different businesses through their balance sheets, income statement and cash flow statements. I had the necessary support and guidance to apply for an internship and be successful in my application in a very short period of time. My internship consultant was a great mentor to me and has always been supportive helping me with writing a good resume as well as improving my interview skills. The workshops provided by Performance Careers were of great value for my internship program. I truly recommend an internship to anyone that wants to have a successful career with a solid foundation.

During my internship, there were challenges but I saw them as an adventure and learnt not to be afraid of it. There, I learnt to interact with employees on a day-to-day basis, gained knowledge in a variety of tasks, and dealt with delicate situations with a professional attitude. It has given me confidence to work with superiors without being intimidated, confidence to accept challenges and knowledge to explore within and outside the organisation. As a result, my future job opportunities have absolutely been enhanced. In the 7th week of my program, I was interviewed and offered an Assistant Financial Accountant position. At Performance Careers, the consultants and others are so helpful and the platform they provide is astonishingly great! It is a platform for those who need opportunities to excel in their future, which I would definitely recommend to people who might be going through the same difficulties of getting a job as I did before starting the internship.

Performance Careers internships provide opportunities for new comers into Australia, especially international students for achieving and advancing their career aspirations. It is a good way of building your career portfolio and standing out from the ‘crowd’. It is a positive way of convincing potential job employers of your capabilities which transcends what any CV or Cover Letter can demonstrate. I undertook an internship to gain practical experience in the Australian work environment and I was also interested in interacting with Information Technology (IT) concepts that were being taught in the class and observe how they apply in real life scenarios. I have achieved credible experience and enjoyed the motivation and support from staff members; from the senior executive all the way to my team members. They always provided the environment to learn, interact and adapt appropriately with their work processes. I am still studying but I have been offered a part-time role with my host company which builds upon my duties from when I was an intern and extends to new responsibilities across the organisation.

Performance Careers is a place where I reshaped myself and gained strong support for my future career. Before joining, as an international student without any related working experience, I feel there are hardly any chances to start my career. I took free workshops at Performance Careers, learnt a lot and found them very professional and helpful. So when I got the information that Performance Careers provides an Internship Program, I didn’t hesitate to join as it could help me readjust myself from campus to job market. Managers and mentors were very friendly and patient to teach me a lot of professional things. The tasks drove me to learn things I didn’t pay attention to before. When I accomplished a task, combining the requirements and my own comprehension, I couldn’t feel better! I’ve learnt a lot about Excel and SAP, as well as improved my communication skills and attention to detail. I got to know what the real Australian working environment is like – not only the working tasks, but also how people cooperate together. The internship has enhanced my future work opportunities through experiences in a local company from which my professional working abilities and resume were enriched, my network expanded, and I had the excellent opportunity to demonstrate my abilities to the host company. Performance Careers really helps a lot to find the best parts of us and strengthen our confidence to compete in Australia.

As an international student who has just graduated, and with insufficient local relevant working experience, it is really hard to find a job. Opportunities will not necessarily come to you even if you are a talented candidate. I decided to take the initiative to grab a better opportunity through engaging in the Internship Program, as my stepping stone to reach my goal and to open myself to new challenges. The three month internship allowed me to learn the basic practical skills which cannot be learnt in a university setting. It did not only enhance my employability through real working experience in a corporate environment, but also my personal development was enhanced and my interpersonal skills have been improved so I am more competitive in job market. I had a very fruitful 12-week-internship in MYOB. I am lucky enough to be offered a one-year contract at the end of my internship. I would definitely recommend an Internship to others - it will widen your horizon and enhance your employability. Thank you to Performance Careers for providing me with the opportunities to achieve my goal and step forward to my career dream!
