Professional Internship Program

"Australian Work Experience"

Successful people invest in themselves and use this investment to fulfil their dreams and career goals.
Focus your energy on building skills, learning from real world experiences and the people around you, putting theory into practice and developing a vision for the future. Become an expert at your job, prove your skills and sell yourself.
Budding Talents Recruitment can help you achieve all these through our Professional Internship Program, connecting you to reputed Australian and multinational companies.

Gain the work experience you need for the dream job you want!

At Budding Talents Recruitment, we work on your behalf and we work hard to help you get your foot in the door of the employer. We want to help you secure a job but it is not always possible due to the intense competition in the job market. These are the facts that:

  • About 90% 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.
  • About 35% of the job vacancies are never advertised by the employer, they are filled through referrals, internal promotions and internships.

Thus, if you want to secure that job you desperately want and deserve, you must market directly to the employers. We encourage you to seriously consider undertaking our Professional Internship Program which completes the missing link called ‘Australian work experience’ which is crucial for successful entry into the Australian workforce. It provides you with a precious opportunity to gain relevant work experience, be familiar with Australian work culture and industry practices, prove your skills to a potential employer and possibly secure a job offer after internship.

Though Professional Internship Program does not guarantee you employment (because job offer depends on your performance and the host company’s staffing requirement), it will arm you will confidence and industry knowledge to effectively market yourself to the potential employers directly.

Our Host Companies

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 INTENSHIP 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!

Our Satisfaction Guarantee

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!


When Can I Start

Internship 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 internship, organise interviews, confirm placement and develop a training plan with the host company.

Paid or Unpaid

Generally internships are unpaid placements as you will be gaining valuable experience in your chosen profession as part of a training program. Some host companies may offer allowances at their own discretion.
