Earn While You Learn

‘Earn While You Learn’ is a graduate program that allows you to gain professional work experience and skills while earning money. 

Have you started planning for your career after graduation? Many graduates are unsure what sort of work they should be applying for. With no professional work experience, they sometimes find it challenging to secure an opportunity to transition into an office-based work environment. That’s why we have introduced the ‘Earn While You Learn’ program aimed at recent or ‘soon to be’ Brisbane-based graduates who would like to kickstart their careers and greatly enhance their resumes while being paid.
