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!

At Budding Talents Recruitment, we work on your behalf and we work hard to help you get your foot in the door of the employer. We want to help you secure a job but it is not always possible due to the intense competition in the job market. These are the facts that:

About 90% of the advertised job vacancies are managed by recruitment agencies who work for the best interest of employers. They aren't there to help you, they are there to look for flaws and weaknesses in order to eliminate you from the list of applicants.

About 35% of the job vacancies are never advertised by the employer, they are filled through referrals, internal promotions and internships.

Thus, if you want to secure that job you desperately want and deserve, you must market directly to the employers. We encourage you to seriously consider undertaking our Professional Internship Program which completes the missing link called ‘Australian work experience’ which is crucial for successful entry into the Australian workforce. It provides you with a precious opportunity to gain relevant work experience, be familiar with Australian work culture and industry practices, prove your skills to a potential employer and possibly secure a job offer after internship.

Though Professional Internship Program does not guarantee you employment (because job offer depends on your performance and the host company’s staffing requirement), it will arm you will confidence and industry knowledge to effectively market yourself to the potential employers directly.

  • 4-12 weeks of unpaid work experience

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.

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.

Generally internships are unpaid placements as you will be gaining valuable experience in your chosen profession as part of a training program. Some host companies may offer allowances at their own discretion.

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

Also ask them whether they will change your host company if you are not satisfied with the work experience given.
