It is challenging for international students to get started in the Australian construction industry.
Before seeking a job position, Employment Specialists helped me polish my CV into a more professional way to meet Construction Industry requirements and highlight my strengths. In addition, the mock interview and instant feedback provided me invaluable experience and skills to help me secure the Intern position.
I am also pleased to accept a Construction Cadet offer after the 5 months internship.
The student program has proved to be fertile ground for us to develop over the years, a fine-tuned process; attempting to give each student an all encapsulating experience.
6 students from each program have worked with us full-time so far. Each personality as delightful and complex as the next. Bond Uni with the more than capable team under Jo Rackham, has supported the program by providing constant guidance, making this a 'team' success story. We hope to have planted some seeds in the minds of students that grow into fruitful affairs.
As for the future: I believe we have yet to uncover the potential the relationship ARP shares with the University and its students. 'Watch this space!'
