Thank you for this opportunity, I got confidence because of this program. As a result, I was able to crack the interview for the company where I am working now. Job hunting is not easy and I have been trying to get a job since I completed my studies and was losing hope but hats off to this program who made me stand on my feet today

Firstly, I wanted to say a huge thank you for running this program and putting all the effort into making it so amazing! I’m very grateful I was able to be part of the program. It was so great to hear from all the speakers, I have learnt so much from them and it definitely helped me a lot to build confidence and go after what I wanted.  I actually managed to get a promotion in the area that I was looking to move to within KPMG in Sustainability and Social Responsibility and this program definitely helped me get there.

A great opportunity to gain insight from Aussies that live/have lived overseas and to learn about their experiences and what they would do differently if they were to do it again. I also learnt that you must invest time in developing your own brand.

“I have noticed an interesting trend. All the speakers seem to have the same kind of ‘just do it’ attitude.

I never understood the practical purpose of LinkedIn until hearing from speakers how they had used the platform to connect with professionals in a new country. The program showed me how to shape my personal brand and use it to power valuable relationships.
