Career Development Placement Program

  • You need experience to get a job but you need a job to get experience.
  • Most jobseekers will only pay attention to jobs advertised on popular job search sites thus making it a competitive marketplace.
  • Most 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.
  • Most job vacancies are filled through referrals and internal promotions.

If you want to secure the job you desperately want and deserve, you must market yourself directly to the employers. You can do it yourself by connecting with employers,which can seem quite daunting/overwhelming! OR you can let us do it on your behalf. We will market you to potential employers, place you in the right job and support you during the placement.

Budding Talents Recruitment has developed an exciting "ongoing job placement program" called Career Development Placement Program to assist you kick-start your career in Australia. The Career Development Placement Program is designed to assist:

  • Aspiring recent graduates looking to start and strengthen their careers
  • New permanent skilled migrants with established overseas track records looking to enter the Australian workforce

If you are a recent graduate with limited or no relevant work experience, you may find it quite challenging to secure a break into your career job and the job hunting process may take you several months without leading to a fruitful outcome. If you are an international student on Graduate Skilled Visa, you have a very short window of opportunity to secure a year of professional work experience in order to qualify for Permanent Residence Visa.

If you are a recent permanent skilled migrant to Australia, you may be surprised to learn that it may easily take you 6-12 months or longer to secure an appropriate career position after relocating here. You could be one of those many talented and highly qualified individuals who are grossly under-employed after moving to Australia. In fact, many overseas professionals effectively see their careers end in Australia from lack of local work experience, cultural awareness or from poor career transition skills.

Most recruitment agencies will not entertain recent graduates and permanent skilled migrants due to lack of Australian work experience and you must have realised by researching jobsites that the majority of job vacancies are handled by recruitment agencies. The good news is, while they say NO to your job application, at Budding Talents Recruitment, we say WHY NOT?

We have helped hundreds of recent graduates and permanent skilled migrants secure job and career outcomes that were previously unattainable through their own efforts. Career Development Placement Program offers aspiring graduates and permanent skilled migrants a rare opportunity to facilitate their transition from study or overseas profession to successful career job in Australia.

Under our Career Development Placement Program, we will market you to a number of potential employers and try to secure interviews. We will help you prepare for the interview by providing you useful interview tips and details about the vacant position and the employer so that you have a higher chance of success at the interview. Upon successful interview, we will help you negotiate your salary with the employer and our strategy will be to help you get your foot in the door by asking for a reasonable salary of between $45K and $70K pa depending on your qualifications. Once you are placed in the job, we will conduct your performance appraisals after 6 and 12 weeks to help you learn and progress on the job so that you qualify for a payrise ASAP. We will maintain regular contact with you during your first three months of probationary period of employment and if just in case it gets terminated within that period, we will find you another similar job as per our terms of business.Please be assured that once you successfully complete the probation period, you are likely to remain employed until you decide to look for a better job opportunity.

We work with quality employers - small, medium & large - from various industries that value your skills, see you as an investment, are willing to train you on the job, and those who encourage diversity & equal employment opportunity in the workplace.

Placement Guarantee

Please note that due to a large number of applications we receive but limited placement opportunities available, we may not be able to work in your case immediately. As a consequence if you do not get short-listed within two months, it means that we do not currently have any placement openings that match your skills-set. We will continue to search for suitable placement opportunities on your behalf for up to six months, after which your details will be deleted from our database.

We cannot guarantee your placement thus we recommend that you continue your personal job search through other means.

Once you are placed in a job, we guarantee your placement for three months, after which you can continue in the job for as long as you wish or until you get terminated by the employer.

Start Date

Career Development Placement 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 job opportunity, organise interviews, confirm placement and develop a training plan with the employer.
