Success Stories

Without the help of Career Success Australia I would not have gotten a job as an accounting graduate. They helped me from day 1. I am always grateful for the tips and support. Best company to join for career guidance.

Jessica

Accounting Graduate / Melbourne
I’d like to thank Naren and the CSA team for guiding me with my accounting career. They gave me great insights and support over the Career Coaching program. It’s certainly not easy getting interviews and offers but their support was wonderful. I learnt a lot during the program about tactics to getting interviews and an offer which I can use for the rest of my career in Australia.

Arun Patel

Accountant / Melbourne
My internship will enhance my competitiveness and employability. Naren is a kind and warm-hearted person who has helped me and many other international students with exploring their strengths to outshine other job applicants and achieve a promising career prospect.

Crystal

Accounting Graduate / Melbourne
I received a number of phone and face-to-face interviews through Naren’s coaching program. Not only did he customise my resume for every job I applied for, but he helped me to structure my answers to behavioural and technical interview questions. His training sessions gave me a lot of confidence. I got my first job at a global insurance company which is just amazing.
