Our Internship 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 Liu

Accounting & Finance Graduate

As a new migrant to Australia I found it hard to get into the marketing industry. Also, my marketing experience was limited, so I did the Internship in Marketing with Career Success Australia. My host company has offered me a position in marketing and client success which I absolutely love! Doing my Marketing Internship gave me the breakthrough I needed.
