Juliana Suzuki - Brazil - Architect
"My objective was to go back to my country (Brazil) with professional experience and face new challenges that i've never done before. i completed a degree in Architecture in brazil. Australian Internships gave me all the support and details about my visa and insurance. They arranged my internship and I started to work in Sydney. I stayed in my internship for 3 months and the company really welcomed me and treated me the same as other employees.
I've come back to Brazil with a huge amount of experience in architecture and this has opened doors and helped me to find a new job. today I have opportunities to work not just in Brazil or Australia but in countries all around the world."

I felt a sense of equality in my workplace. Theresa kept me fully updated on everything going on with my VISA and dropped frequent notes to ensure my happiness in my placement. I think that you guys did a great job and hope that you keep up the good work. Thanks a bunch!"

They are really patient with me, teaching me professional manner and skills to deal with fast changing business environment"
Yulieth - Colombia - Law
"Making the decision to come here (Australia) was not easy but the experience has been just great. I am working on the subjects I am interested in, my workmates are fantastic people. Australians in general are friendly and I am learning about another culture. It has been a good experience in all aspects. The agencies I made my arrangements with, have given me their support during the whole process. They were really helpful and efficient finding an internship suitable for my interests and organising all my visas with the Dept of immigration.
But that is not all, their current phone calls and e-mails throughout the internship have made me feel part of a family and have given me the strength to go on when I have felt down. I have to thank them. They are an absolutely wonderful team.
If you are thinking about taking an internship in Australia, Don't hesitate to do so. You will not regret it at all."
