DeakinTALENT is your Anytime-Anywhere Careers and Employment Service with Deakin University to help students find internships and jobs after graduation.
A student of IVY during his third semester did an internship which he found by himself with great effort in a company called Eastern Volunteers. It was a three months internship and the student did that as a substitute to a unit in third semester which used to be a 2 days a week thing. He was into programming for the company which was totally unpaid again.
During the fourth semester, the student got an opportunity through DeakinTALENT, as it looks for candidates with potential and who are prepared to deliver on the job from the day one to be referred to employers, for a company called Make It Mine. Five student applications were picked up by the DeakinTALENT for two positions and this student's profile was picked up by the company and he was invited for an interview. There was a panel interview and he could finally crack the interview. The student attributes his success to the reference from the internship employer and the experience he gained while working there as a programmer.
He now finally works for the company Make It Mine as a Software Developer and is paid AUD 60000 per annum with 9.5% superannuation. What not people do to land a job in Australia and that is when they feel transformed and the journey seems to be fulfilling once they land a job after graduation.
Recruitment and training is a very expensive thing overseas unlike India. And, hence have your resume do the talking that, you can perform on the job from day one to which you are applying to. Graduating without local experience and skills that your job demands from day one, is like graduating into a world of no opportunities and vice-versa.
