Professional and warm company
Despite all the covid issues pgp secured an amazing IT placement for me at an IOT company based in Sydney. Even before I started my placement I was mentored through my resume and interview techniques. Since starting last week I have realised there is so much to learn and how lucky I am I was able to get something like this during the pandemic. I can’t thank the team enough for guiding me throughout this journey. I would not hesitate to recommend pgp to anyone who is trying to start their professional careers in Australia.
Exactly what I needed to start my career
I recently graduated with a masters in IT and was struggling to find a software development internship on my own. My friend recommended me premium graduate to have a chat with and I ended up signing up to their vocational placement program. It was definitely a good decision as i was able to secure a placement a little over 8 weeks. My host organisation is a boutique ios developer and since i joined i have learnt a significant amount of programming skills and most importantly project management skills across the team.
My manager is very support...ive and encouraging and has provided great onboading for me. I would definitely utilize this experience on my resume to help me get ahead in my IT career. Thank you so much for the consistent support throughout the process

They claimed they'd got so many programs which would provide you "great opportunities". Here is what they said: "Even if you don’t get offered a paid position, an internship is always good to have on the resume as it significantly increases your chances of employment in Australia." Sounds like some 80s jokes of having a degree securing your job.
Really sad to see these company's keep increasing to take advantages of young people. It's caused by so many complicated social issues which make less and less company's actually help people, meanwhile dramatically increasing population would not stop until 2050.
Must do Program
I had a chance to secure an internship through PGP. I finished my internship that was provided by PGP and finally was fortunate enough to secure a position in the same company. PGP is a must do program in my opinion as it opens the first gate of your career that everyone is struggling to get into. My consultant Mary Nakpil was so helpful and she guided me in the best manner. I would always thank her for her support.
Clear direction and helpful service
I fran, was on a three-month internship in Adelaide organized by Premium Graduate. I worked for up coming Solar copany, a subsidiary of larger American Solar and Clean Energy Solutions organisation. Firstly, the highlights as I do not have many difficulties to share. I prefer to learn from mistakes and to take experiences as they come, no regrets. The PGP Staff were absolutely amazing. If I ever wanted advice on career directions , or help to understand the opportunities in various markets they were always there.
Enjoyed the 3 month
My internship with IAG Capital was not only a valuable professional experience, but also an enlightening opportunity to see how the professional world functions. I was fortunate enough to work for an amazing mentor and team, which finally enabled me to feel like I was making a difference in a field that I cared about. I conducted research, wrote reports, assisted with presentations, learnt how to prepare company contracts, and collaborated on a number of other company initiatives all of which undoubtedly helped me prepare for a career in the 21st century. I would highly recommend this experience!
Great block chain experience
Through Premium Graduate Placements, I was able to gain experience in a leading IT company. The company itself has seen huge success offering blockchain and cryptocurrency related services, and the department that I was placed in offered me the opportunity to gain meaningful hands on work experience in this dynamic emerging area. As part of Premium Graduate Career coaching program, the experience that I gained in my coaching lessons that preceded my internship were absolutely invaluable in helping me to make the most out of this experience. I was able to learn from my peers about IT
Great exposure in a fast pace company
I worked in the Engineering department of a medium sized mechanical and automation company, the executive director said to me it was up to me what I wanted to get involved in so you really have to throw yourself into it and be proactive and get involved in all of their events/projects going on. I was learning all areas of engineering and my soft skills and communication skills also improved drastically. In addition I was attending and helping to run events and business development. The office is very small made up mostly of senior staff who are...all nice,and a great way to learn more about the engineering world. I went to lots of events and at first felt a bit out of your comfort zone as business etiquette to my home country! lots of job opportunities and networking events where people ram their business cards into your hand and want to see what they can get out of you! You get out of your internship what you put in so be proactive and engage and everything they do.. lots of post work events which I pretty much went to all of them and got involved in the running of the event Be approachable and offer help, you'll only get something out of it if you put the effort in.

I applied for an internship with PGP.
They actually will not help and guide you. As soon as you paid them, they will not assist you if you experience any controversy due to their negligence. I am asking for a refund, or at least half of the amount that I paid. However, they will ignore you once you paid them. Furthermore, this is indeed an exploitation and it is not actually a training. Lessons learned for me. Cheers!
Perfect result. Super happy and greatful
I can to Australia in the hope of changing my life and pgp changed my life. I am so happy you have helped me to reach this job and I have learnt so much with Alfred and the team. I have been made full Time this week and I would like to thank everyone in the team that helped to become who I am today and you guys are doing something amazing for international students like me. Wonderful program. Thanks you
France student and happy with the quality
I would highly recommmend other french students go through PGP to look for placements in Australia. this is my second placement and and I can't thank more to the team and my new network of host company employeees. They have shown me Melbourne and Brisbane and we have become great friends. The support structure is very warm and welcoming and I think many students from around the world will benefit from such a program and host companies in australia are very helpful and encouraging for international students seeking for international experience.
Appreciation to the team
Really happy I have been offered 2 placements through pgp. I was not very confident when I first started but through several rounds of interview I’m very confident now. Takes practice and I have recently been offered 2 good roles and this wouldn’t happen with out the help of pgp consultants. I would say they are one of the best placements companies in Melbourne. 3 of my friend are also placed through them and also happy. I would say give them a shot if you looking for decent companies and you are looking for a fast track.
Wonderful people and great start to my career
Needed to thank all the team who provided with support and encouragement. What a good way to finish the year. I’m very happy with the placement consultant service. Would highly recommend the professional skills program. I’m now working full time and it feels like a dream
