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:
I decided to undertake a Professional Year program for my professional development, internship and networking opportunities. I also wanted to develop my soft skills. The curriculum was good. The teachers were very supportive. There was a lot of learning. Also critical evaluation of my resume and cover letter. The internship exposure was really great. I gained a few skills that will stay with me throughout my professional career like networking and building relationships. I also have a practical understanding of accounting concepts. It widened the area of my job search. It improved my understanding of Australian work culture. It also helped me to analyse my skills and compare it on a different level with my fellow interns.
I would like to recommend Professional Year to fresh graduates with little or no experience, as they can learn useful job hunting skills, resume writing skills and interview techniques. They also have the opportunity to be trained by experienced trainers so they can understand the interview process better by thinking from an employer’s perspective. The 12 week internship will help them get ready for the job market not only from a hard skills perspective like financial statements preparations, Excel or Xero/MYOB skills, but also from a soft skills perspective, like teamwork and advanced communication skills. I like Performance Education because it helped me enter into the professional world, understand better about the interview process, and enhanced my soft skills as well as providing the opportunity to make friends. I enjoyed every moment of my study at the Performance Education.
I met people from different cultures. I learned a lot from students from other countries by trying their restaurants and their festivals. This experience is great. I never had this when I was at university. I like Performance Education because of its multi-cultural environment and its nice trainers and consultants. Thanks to the Professional Year study, I have had more opportunities to communicate with students from different countries and different backgrounds.
