Our Success Stories

I found a few internship companies and chose Career Success Australia to help me. I found them to be professional and knew my industry. I got an internship in a materials science company that turned into casual employment. I think that boosted my career profile as I got a full-time job in another company soon after.


Chemical Engineering Graduate / Melbourne

After my Masters at Melbourne Uni, I couldn’t get a job. Even with 3 years of engineering experience in Singapore, it was hard. I joined Naren and his team to do coaching and internship. I got a placement in 2 months and then joined the company in 2018. I am still working in the same company as an engineer one year later!
