Australian Work Experience
Local Work Experience
Industry Work Experience
Relevant Work Experience
Study-related Work Experience

Successful people invest in themselves and use this investment to fulfil their dreams and career goals.

Focus your energy on building skills, learning from real world experiences and the people around you, putting theory into practice and developing a vision for the future. Become an expert at your job, prove your skills and sell yourself.

Budding Talents Recruitment can help you achieve all these through our Professional Internship Program, connecting you to reputed Australian and multinational companies.

Gain the work experience you need for the dream job you want!

We can help you get over the frustration of the paradoxical situation: “You need a job to get experience and you need experience to get a job.” You must be aware from your job hunting experience that most of the employers want to hire people who have the “Australian work experience” and can “hit the ground running”. If you want to secure that job you desperately want and deserve, you must market directly to the potential employers by bypassing the tough competition in the job market. We can help you get your foot in the door of a company through our Professional Internship Program.

You will be placed in a host company for 12 weeks of supervised, unpaid work experience, where you will get a precious opportunity to:
• gain professional work experience and on-the-job-training,
• be familiar with Australian work culture and industry practices,
• gain confidence and industry knowledge required to hit the job market with competitive advantage and
• prove your worth to a potential employer to secure a job offer.


Professional Internship Program is available in most fields of study. We will find a host company based on your field of study.

Unlike other internship providers, we do not charge any fees to the interns, if possible. We charge a reasonable fee only for guaranteed placements, which is payable once the internship placement is confirmed. We provide quality internships with satisfaction guarantee at the lowest price in the market and it can be as low as FREE!

Note that you are not paying for the internship but for our service.

We have placed more than 4,000 interns in over 1,000 reputed host companies since 2007. Our host companies consist of leading Australian & multinational companies including accounting firms, technology businesses, engineering contractors, financial institutions, logistics businesses, retail chains, 5 star hotels, consulting firms and more.

NO BACK-TO-BACK INTERNSHIPS which means we do not encourage the host companies to host one intern after another like most other internship placement agencies do. Instead, we encourage them to hire the intern after internship which is the best thing to do after investing so much in their training.

HIGH INTERNSHIP TO JOB PLACEMENT Most of our host companies utilise our service as a trial before hiring which means you get a chance to prove your skills to a potential employer and your chance of getting employed after the internship is much higher. Whether you will get the job offer will depend on your job performance and the host company's staffing needs at the time you complete your internship. Almost 1 in 3 interns get employed by our host companies!





If you want the work experience gained during the internship to meet the academic credits, we can customise our Professional Internship Program to meet your specific academic requirements. We will ensure that you receive the on-the-job training compatible with your course objectives.

Many universities have internships integrated into their degree programs as a part of Work Integrated Learning. However, they do not provide an internship placement service, thus, making it very difficult for students to find a suitable placement themselves. Securing an internship takes time and effort. Many international students even return to their home country to complete their internship costing them thousands of dollars. Why not let us find you an internship so you can focus on your studies instead of cold-calling potential host companies?

At Budding Talents Recruitment, our number one priority is you, our interns! We work hard to find reputed host companies who offer invaluable work experiences that we hope will benefit you immensely.

Here is our guarantee to you:

When you are placed in an internship, if you are not satisfied with the work experience offered by the host company, we'll find you a replacement internship that will make you happy. Because when you're happy, we're happy! And if you're not, then rest assured we'll do everything possible to remedy it straight away!

Internship opportunities are available throughout the year, but we recommend you to apply at least 2 months before your intended start date. This enables us to find you the most suitable internship, organise interviews, confirm placement and develop a training plan with the host company.

Internships come in all shapes and sizes, and not all of them are going to suit your needs. Most of the internship placements we organise don’t come with a wage because it is more about giving you the opportunity to build your knowledge, experience and skills, rather than working for that organisation. The Fair Work Act 2009 makes it clear that these arrangements can be unpaid as long as the intern is the one receiving most of the benefit, and the learning you gain is meaningful. If you have any concerns in this area, check out the Fair Work Ombudsman’s website for more information.

While we all wish we could be paid for everything we do, by doing an unpaid internship, you could gain experience and knowledge, and prove your skills to a potential employer.

As per the Fair Work Act 2009, you aren’t supposed to be doing ‘productive’ work during an internship, which essentially means the organisation shouldn’t have you doing their work for them. That’s not to say you won’t be involved in real work though. You’ll likely be learning from staff members who are working on real projects and assisting them along the way, where practical. For example, a tax accountant intern won’t be giving tax advice to the clients, but they will help the tax accountant where they can and see how tax returns are prepared. Working closely with professionals should see you pick up plenty of skills and industry knowledge you may not get in the classroom.

You will be paid a salary when the host company benefits more than you from the internship arrangement. We always encourage the host company to pay you a salary because money is a great motivating factor!

Please apply online by completing the Online Application Form. One of our consultants will contact you ASAP to set up a time for an assessment interview.

We do placements in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide & Canberra. Contact us on 1300 79 80 69 for more information.


We have helped more than 4,000 happy customers! Below is a glimpse of what some say about our internship program:
After I obtained the Master of Professional Accounting degree from The University of Sydney, I started my job hunting. However, since I didn't have PR and local working experience, it was difficult for me to find an entry-level accounting job. Therefore, I changed my strategy and decided to find a job agency to give me some career advice. After research, I chose Studyandwork who placed me in an internship program in a large sized telecommunications company within just one week after my initial interview. Now, I am working for this company for one year and a half. I highly recommend Studyandwork because of its reliable and professional service."
- Alison Zhang
I attended Studyandwork’s internship programme during last year and I successfully got a full-time job offer after my internship. I know it’s quite hard for an overseas student to get a full-time accounting job, especially without a PR. However, Studyandwork helped me to make my dream come true. I have been referring my friends to join this programme since then."
- Bing Liu
As a fresh accounting graduate who had little hands-on experience and struggled to find the first job, I was lucky to be introduced to StudyandWork. With their knowledge and expertise in the industry, they gave me valuable advice about career positioning and placed me in a dream job. What impressed me was instead of randomly matching me with any company, they carefully listened to my wishes and abilities then offering me several options to choose with clear pros and cons in each alternative. After that, I was well informed about the company cultures, their expectations and their intention of hiring from intern to perm which clearly gave me a cutting-edge advantage compared to other candidates. Finally, I started the position of an intern and became a permanent staff after 3 months. Looking back, I'm happy that I didn't waste my time searching jobs without a sound understanding about the local job market. I chose a smart way, consulting the expert and hence saving a lot of time and effort for career progressing, not career seeking."
- Derek Dao
When I graduated from the university, all I owned was just the skills and knowledge which I learnt in university. I found it very difficult for a graduate to secure a good job without any work experience. Thanks to Studyandwork, they helped me source an internship opportunity working in a local non-profit organization as a financial assistant. This job offered me a real-world experience of how financial accounting looks like and what the basic duties are. During 3-month internship program, I not only learnt many accounting skills, but also got to know the local business culture and etiquette. I do believe three-month internship gave me a lot of experience and paved a path to my next job in this industry. Luckily, I've secured another full-time job after this internship program. Thanks, Studyandwork!"
- Grace Lin
After I graduated from Macquarie University, I had a few retail experiences but none accounting-related. I was lucky enough that Studyandwork found me a placement in a listed international company. I did 3 months internship as an Accounts Assistant and I gain a lot of office and accounting experience which you can’t learn from university. When the internship came to the end, my manager offered me a full-time position as an Accounting Analyst. Without the internship experience, I will not have had such a great opportunity. Whenever my friends are looking for jobs, I will always recommend StudyandWork."
-Rachel Lin

Before you accept an internship offer from any agency, ask them whether you are the one who will be benefiting the most from the internship, not the host company. Also ask them whether they will change your host company if you are not satisfied with the work experience given. Budding Talents Recruitment provides internships with Satisfaction Guarantee in compliance with Fair Work Ombudsman's guidelines.
