I was lucky to discover OQP Victoria which helped me to enter the Australian construction industry. OQP Victoria taught me job search techniques, how find links to local employers, interview skills and tips, career counselling and resume writing. The course gave me a chance to undertake a work placement with one of the best infrastructure projects in Australia and I ended up landing my first job there. I greatly appreciated the OQP team supporting me during the most difficult time in my career as well as during one of the most challenging times in the market with COVID-19.

OQP Victoria is extremely valuable and provides immense benefits professional migrants to Australia. I was extremely happy to get a career job with John Cotton Australia (Tontine Group) Campbellfield - the place where I did my work placement through Melbourne Polytechnic. While studying, my OQP trainer not only provided me with the contact of the CFO of this company but also personally put in a request to help me. Through this contact I was able to find the work placement and by using the skills I had acquired in the course, I managed to establish a good relationship with the team resulting in a job offer.

I strongly believe, OQP Victoria is an outstanding program for skilled overseas professionals to develop their communication, networking and employability skills. Most importantly, this program provides skilled professionals with a pathway to gain Australian workplace experience and thus improving employment opportunities. It would have been a significant struggle for me to get a professional job without the mentoring and support by the OQP team to get a professional practical placement.
