Danny Cheng – Human Resources, Melbourne
When I signed on with PGP I was assigned to a Consultant, who was friendly and attentive to my needs. With the submission of my resume with PGP, within 5 days I had an interview with a company of my interested field and began working the next day. This opportunity was not advertised on any career's channels and was only accessible directly through PGP's close relationship with the company. Through my experience, I was able to gain real industry knowledge and experiences, through the company's willingness to entrust significant tasks to me and the learning opportunities that came with it.
Needless to say, I was greatly impressed with the speed and care of PGP's service, and for helping me find a great company that suited my needs. PGP is a great choice for getting that first step in kickstarting your career.

As soon as I heard about PGP, I was really excited about everything they told me about the program and guaranteed that I would receive a vocational placement in a reputable construction company.
I applied for the placement overseas, as I'm an India-based resident and wanted to have some exposure in overseas construction and business development.
After applying for the program and submitting my documents to PGP, I got an interview within 2 days.The organisation helped me in finding me the type of environment I wanted to work in and helped in developing my interview skills through practicing mock interviews.
On my first day in the office, I was warmly welcomed by my supervisor and the other staff in the office. I was helped by each of the colleagues present in the office every day.
The work given to me was according to my knowledge and occasionally in some areas where it went out of my field. I had a lot of exposure in the office for the type of work and projects given to me.
I thank PGP for helping me and giving me the best exposure I truly wanted!

Anup Bhomi – Civil Engineering, Sydney
Finding a job as a graduate engineer is really tough in Australia, especially if you are graduate from overseas university. I proceeded internship with the help of PGP in the matter of a week and started working as a structural engineer.
I got hands on experience of local market and learned about the Australian standard and code. I definitely have got better than before and confident in this field now, all thanks to the PGP team and special thanks to my consultant who has responded well in every situation.
Anna Ivanova – IT, Sydney
I’ve decided to use PGP Australia services because I was busy with University and casual work at the time and needed help to find an internship.
Within three months I had three interviews, and the last one was exactly for the work experience I needed.
I later learnt that the host company didn’t advertise that position anywhere, in fact they were not sure if they were ready for the graduate program yet, so my Consultant went the extra mile to help me find what I wanted. I would recommend PGP for their personal approach and support during the stressful time of looking for the first skilled job.
Ahmed Raza – Electrical Engineering, Sydney
Thanks for your assistance and prompt feedbacks regarding my internship. You had arranged several interviews for me at different companies and with your efforts and help, I secured my internship and also secured an employment over there.
Ian Huang – Accounting, Brisbane
Q1. Can you describe a typical day in your internship?
I need to pick up the Profit & Loss and Comparative Balance Sheet from clients’ accounting software, transferring to our software, Handisoft. After adjusting all journals, I will begin to prepare the Business Activity Statement on a quarterly or annually basis. Also, I need to generate the financial reports for clients and do the income tax return for their company, trust and individual.
Q2. What has been the highlight of your internship?
All partners and other colleagues are friendly and supportive to me. In general, the working environment is professional with the full of happiness and enjoyment.
Q3. What support/training did you receive from your supervisor and other employees in your internship?
I have a very supportive mentor in this internship. At first, he will guide me how to use the accounting software.
Besides, no matter how many questions I have or how simple questions they could be, he is always willing to answer the questions and teach me how to be proper and qualified tax accountant. He loves to share his professional experience with me, and I have learnt a lot and enhanced my knowledge scope to a large extent.
Q4. What skills have you been able to develop?
I need to understand the up-to-date taxation law in order to answer clients’ questions. Additionally, I need to have a good eye on details, fixing problems. I also need to be familiar with all kinds of accounting software because clients usually use different software. Being a public practice accountant should have all-rounded accounting skills in order to satisfy different clients’ requirements.
Thomas Shalders – Human Resources, Perth
Whilst I can't imagine my experience is the standard, I can't thank Premium Graduate Placements enough for what they've done. Within two weeks of signing up I had been placed in an internship and offered a full-time position.
Throughout the entire process Premium Graduate Placements always supported me and without their help I believe I would not have found employment for quite some time. I would like to especially thank my Consultant for helping me every step of the way.
Patrick Zhang – Accounting, Sydney
After enrolling the program, I was guided to the right path towards a ideal internship. With the help of my consultant, I was well prepared for the interview. Overall, it was a great experience to me. Thank you, PGP.
Yifei Zhou (Kathy) – Accounting, Sydney
The K22 Mentorship training session from PGP is really helpful for me to get the placement. Since the resume format and interview model are different between China and Australia, through the session, I know the right way to prepare each interview.
I’m also easy to be nervous when talking with strangers, which may leave a negative impression on the interviewer. But during the session, my trainer always encouraged me and let me become confident. Besides that, my consultant also really cares about my placement and has provided me several tips for the interview. Thanks a lot to them!
Raghu K. – Civil Engineering, Gold Coast
My Host Company gave me training on different elements like tendering, estimating, subcontractor management, procurement, documentation and client management. I was able to learn how to prepare estimates on the basis of Australian Standards.
They offered a part time job after the internship. I am so fortunate to start my dream job in Australia. Thank you, Robin and team, for your valuable support in finding my internship and job. Thank you for finding an internship for me in my dream career.

Deepu Kalavakolanu – Human Resources, Sydney
If you are a fresher or an experienced person seeking a job in Australia but couldn't find one for you because organizations seek local experience and in my opinion internships are a great way to improve long term relationships with organizations and also to ensure your employment after the commencement of the program.
And for this my blind opinion is PGP for sure and they are just amazing in terms of customer service and taking care of the candidate during and after the program by providing the right guidance. Many of my friends and family members availed the services of PGP and now all of them are comfortable in their professional career. I would highly recommend PGP.
Nancy Wang – Marketing, Melbourne
I’m glad that I made a great decision which is asking PGP for help. They are all very professional and very friendly. They provided me a lot of help such as interview mocking training, modifying my resume. It didn’t take me a long time to get the interview. Their efficiency surprised me. I’m studying marketing, so I really need a working experience that is related to marketing.
They helped me get into an amazing company where can allow me learn more about marketing in real business environment. The company they found for me got me involve to every marketing aspect. As an international student, it is really hard to find an internship without any proper working experience. PGP is like a bridge that can help you connect to a bright future. To have a good start of your career, go for PGP.
