We are a team of professionals with decades of experience and extensive business networks in Australia.
We realised the massive employability problem for international students after their graduation in Australia, which could effect the entire international education industry. We started with a vision to solve this employability problem by increasing the employability outcomes for international students/graduates by providing an internship opportunity and start their careers in Australia.
