Discover the stories of PE’s Professional Year students below and find out how we have helped them maximise their potential to achieve outstanding results for themselves:
The Professional Year program provided an excellent opportunity to apply what I have studied in the classroom, build my professional business network, gain a full understanding of how businesses operate and explore my future career path. I learnt from industry experts, made new friends and even had a dedicated Placement Consultant to help me through my internship. I am truly impressed with the way PE operates exactly according to one of its mottos, ‘your career success is our goal’ which has guided me all the way through in pursuing my dream career.
My internship gave me the opportunity to work in a real business environment and apply technical knowledge I learnt into practice. I now know the difference between Chinese and Australia business culture and I learnt how to communicate with my colleagues confidently and in a professional manner. I enhanced my problem solving skills when I faced difficulties and my time management skills have improved. I learnt where to be careful in interviews and how to write my resume to express myself. During my internship, I got feedback every two weeks which really helped me to know where I need to improve in the future.
I really enjoyed the class about working culture in Australia. Its style is very much different to that in China, so I was able to learn several interesting tips to prepare for interviews. During the internship placement I learnt how to prioritise tasks to meet deadlines, contact clients appropriately, and build a positive relationship with colleagues. I’m also lucky to have signed a contract to join my host company!
