We, through our Professional Internship Program, can connect you to reputable Australian and multinational companies.
Gain the work experience you need for the dream job you want!
Professional Internship Program
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.
A message from the founder
Professional Internship Program is available in most fields of study. We will find a host company based on your field of study.

We are confident that we offer one of the best intenship programs in the maket because we make sure that you achieve the maximum benefit out of the internship opportunity. We use the following process to match interns with host companies and to ensure that the placement is of mutual benefit:

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, and can be done in-company or remotely.
In an in-company internship, you will work in the host company premises, along side a supervisor who will train and supervise you on the job, in person.
In a remote internship, you will work from home on interesting industry projects along side a supervisor at the host company. You will be trained and supervised with the help of collaboration platforms such as Zoom and Slack. You will gain professional work experience and on-the-job-training from the comfort of your home. You can participate in remote internship from anywhere in the world!
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 5,000 happy customers! Below is a glimpse of what some say about our internship program:

We helped them get their foot in the door of corporate Australia and they have worked very hard to get to where they are now. We are very proud of them and they are an inspiration to all the students, recent graduates and new permanent skilled migrants out there.

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.
