Happy words from happy students

“I have been able to have firsthand experience scheduling posts and using a lot of different software that I would now go into job interviews and when I meet people for potential jobs, I’ll be able to say I have had experience using these programs, scheduling and writing blog posts to organically grow interest.”

Elliot de BruinFuture Music Industry - Social Media Marketing

“The internship has prepared me and made me even stronger. It gave me good networking and contacts for when I look for work in my life. It didn’t only prepare me well for the job market but also in my personal life, to go across hurdles and be stronger.”

Satya KalyanapuFuture Squared - Marketing

“Now that I have some capacity of professional knowledge like how project management works and how I am supposed to implement my knowledge in the real world, it has made me more confident so if I apply for another job, I will be more suitable then I was before.”

Himesh RaviFuture Squared - Web Developer

“The internship reinforced the knowledge learned from my coding boot camp and showed me how it applied in a real world project. This internship has given us the experience of working in a start up entity where we are not given
exact parameters for what to do, we were just given a “we want this outcome, go make it happen."”

Craig LockwoodFuture Squared - Programmer / Developer

“I liked having the opportunity to immerse myself in a competitive and developed labor market like the Australian where I could work with professionals from another culture and continue to improve my English learning in a different context than usual like classroom. Also enjoyed the fact that people trusted in my work and gave me different challenges within my practice.”

Camilo GuzmanIndustry Placements Australia - Marketing

“I gain more confidence in working skills in Australia. My internship gave me valuable skills that I was unaware I was missing. Thank you for your help in placing me in my dream career.”

Jun Xiang WangJunior Accounting Intern

“IPA has helped our company expand into areas where we would usually not go into, through the IPA program they have helped us discover new insights and ease the pressure of staffing. The interns were very well educated and very eager to learn, and it went both ways.

Matt and the staff assisted in finding the right interns to fulfil the briefs we had plus introducing other view points we didn’t even consider. It was a good learning experience for all parties involved. Highly recommended.”

Dennis MahBusiness Development Manager - Sonaray Australia
