Don’t just take our word for it
The world really is a very small place. You might think that you are the only student with reduced graduate employment prospects due to the state of your local economy. Not so. Students and graduates from around the world face very similar issues when it comes to graduate employment and have embraced the notion of improving their work prospects by becoming Successful Graduates.
From time to time we receive feedback from our clients, and we love everything they have to say. Their feedback helps us to build a better network and more robust training material to support graduate employment.
“Your new business is vital in building bridges between employers and those looking to gain employment. At the end of the day, it is not about qualifications and achievements, but more of meeting a demand with supply – understanding what employers are looking for, what is the role required in the organisation, how an individual can fit into the organisation and what the individual can gain by fulfilling the role required.”

“I would also like to thank Successful Graduate personally because I have received two interview opportunities recently, one with a renowned private school and the other one with a good public school. My resume polished under the guidance of Successful Graduate has absolutely helped. It is time for me to review my Successful Graduate courses again and get ready for the interview next week! Successful Graduate has provided me with both knowledge and insight about employment. I wish I could have known this in my first year of university. No matter whether you are a domestic student or an international student, or what year you are in at college or university, Successful Graduate can help you navigate into your bright future.”

“I have completed the course and really enjoyed doing it. It was very informative and provided some thought-provoking questions for myself. For instance, I started to put thought into what my 5 core values are and if I am applying them appropriately in my current job/workplace. It is definitely important to be clear about my beliefs in order to sell myself better. In addition, I never knew I could negotiate my package for a graduate position! I was always under the impression that graduates should take what they are offered. :)”

“I personally experienced the transition from University life towards the workforce going through the question of all questions – “what am I going to do now with my degree?” – and once I had decided it became “why am I not getting a job?” If you are asking yourself the same questions you will find all the answers in this fantastic program. Successful Graduate gives you the right tools, knowledge and understanding on how to maximize your potential in order to market yourself with a competitive advantage turning your prospects into real opportunities.”

“Gordon is one of those rare people who combines professionalism and passion in equal quantities. I have collaborated with Gordon off and on over the number of years that we have worked in the international education industry and have always found his approach to be both innovative and results-driven. He has worked on a number of great initiatives over the years; however, I am most excited by his latest project, Successful Graduate. This project tackles the challenging and boundary-spanning issue of graduate employment in an increasingly competitive market – in both strategic and practical terms. His advice to students is on the money, and while the site is targeted for university students and graduates around the world, it’s really full of gems of advice for anyone looking to launch a new career. I unreservedly give Gordon my highest recommendation!”
AUSTRALIA, GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY MANAGER INTERNATIONAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT
“I really wish I had more resources like Successful Graduate when I was graduating! I remember scrambling for all of the help I could get, it just wasn’t readily available. I see Successful Graduate as an essential tool for students, graduates and professionals alike. I also see this just as valuable for those students who may be studying abroad and will be transitioning to another country to start their career. The transition from study to work can be challenging enough, but add in the mix of relocating, and it’s even more stressful. Having resources like this available are critical to help set people up for success. I am so happy to see this strategic and innovative tool and I highly recommend it for those wanting to know what to do next and how to market yourself. You work so hard to get your degree, let Successful Graduate help you land that dream job!”

“Transitioning from student life to the working world can be intimidating to navigate. The knowledge and skills you bring to your role from your degree are important but the value the Successful Graduate team can add in instilling confidence as you enter your career is truly significant in setting you up for success. I have had the opportunity to work with a number of the Successful Graduate team members and I think what truly sets them apart in the industry is their genuine approach which is founded in both strategic and practical methods. Had an opportunity like this been available during my transition I would have been all over it. You may know you are capable of doing a job, but what’s important is being able to demonstrate to others why you are the best fit for the job.”
