"It feels like a long time ago but I walked in the Joblinx office as a regular student, just four months ago. I went there with a glimmer of hope but without any expectations. It was Joblinx who provided me with the paramount advice and gave me a chance to succeed as an employee with the Sarina Russo Group. You know they say 'push yourself because, no one is going to do it for you' and I’m a firm believer in this. I was constantly pushing myself to the limit as an intern which resulted in getting a job at this great company. I’m very grateful to James Cook University Brisbane and Joblinx as they provided me with a platform to achieve my goals.
Work Hard – it always pays off!"

"Someone once said, "Like this cup, you are full of opinions and speculations. How can I show you wisdom unless you first empty your cup?" (Nyogi Senzaki). I walked in Joblinx office without any expectations - just an open mind and an empty cup. I was constantly improving myself, and took their advice on how to go about employment in my new environment. Consistency is key. You just have to reveal yourself to them, capitalize on your strengths, and Joblinx will magically turn it into something feasible. (Believe me) It is possible."
"Even though I had several years of accounting experience in my home country, it is not easy to secure a job here without having Australian work experience. When I first visited to Joblinx, my employment consultant recommended I go for work experience rather than a casual job. This valuable advice along with my employment consultants personal experiences in the Australian job market encouraged me to think positively.
However, no matter how hard it is finally secured an interview and now I’m gaining work experience in an amazing environment with really friendly Australian staff. For all JCU Brisbane students I would suggest you visit Joblinx to identify your inner potential and start your new career in Australia. Thank you Joblinx for all the support!!!"
“Joblinx is a great service and should be utilised by all students at James Cook University Brisbane. Not only do they help you to prepare for the Australian job market, but they do their best to get you work experience. I would like to thank the Joblinx team, they helped me to get work experience at Linfox, Australia's second largest transport and logistics company. While in the programme I gained a plethora of administrative knowledge and skills. I would recommend Joblinx to all of my peers, the Joblinx team can do wonders.”
"It's not even 2 months since I arrived in Brisbane and I have completed 4 weeks of my work experience program at Asana Restaurant - F&B department. That is how fast Joblinx helped me. The Tourism and Hospitality industry has always been my choice for a career, but I did not know where to start. Although I completed my bachelor’s degree in the same industry, I did not have any Australian work experience in the industry. I knew this was important so I decided to talked to Joblinx on market day. I spoke to an employment consultant and she explained that I should start from the very bottom if I want to make a successful career. Since then, she has been very helpful. From the time I walked into Joblinx, till today, the staff have been very nice and friendly. The staff there never forgot to check on me to see what is going on and keep me updated. Within weeks, I was offered this great opportunity to work in an amazing restaurant where I can work to gain local experience. I really enjoy working at Asana, the restaurant of the famous Australian chef Pete Evans. The staff are very helpful and I am currently learning a lot about how things work. I get to meet new people every day at the restaurant and so far it has been a wonderful experience which honestly I cannot express with words. I walked into Joblinx looking for a casual job which will help me enough to get myself through rent and living. But instead, they helped me start my career. This is amazing!! I have literally started living my dream!!! All thanks to Joblinx...! Talking to Joblinx is one of the best decisions I have made so far. I would never think twice to recommend them to someone else. Cheers!"
“I am studying an MPA/MBA degree at JCUB. Joblinx has helped me to find work experience in both management and accounting fields. I am very satisfied with the assistance Joblinx has provided as I have learnt a lot from these internships and it has helped me to understand the Australian business environment. Thanks Joblinx”
“My experience with Joblinx was very positive, not only did it boost my confidence but it helped me to realise my potential. I now have direction and an internship which will prove a great stepping stone for me to get a better understanding of what it is like to work in an international workplace. I would recommend Joblinx to all students. An internship could be a great reference for you in the future, and allow you develop the skills and confidence important for your career. Thank you Joblinx.”
“My MPA degree is challenging me to excel. By engaging with the Joblinx service I have learnt a great deal about how to effectively prepare myself for employment. In addition, I have been successful in securing a paid job. Joblinx ongoing assistance with research and advice about how I can improve my career prospects in my chosen field has put me ahead of where I expected to be. Whether you’re just looking for a part time job to earn some money or seeking help with setting the foundations for future career prospects in your degree, I highly recommend you give this service a try. Furthermore, I feel confident that the concepts and knowledge I have gained from my lecturers and tutors will be a useful component when I am gaining work experience.”
“I have found studying a dual MPA/MBA program at JCU Brisbane to be a big challenge but also a very rewarding experience. Throughout my three trimesters at JCU Brisbane, my course has helped me to develop critical thinking skills and prepare for the real world working environment. Although sometimes it can be challenging to study in a foreign country, I have found all of my teachers and classmates to be very supportive. In particular, I have found The Learning Centre to be a great service, especially during assignment and exam periods. The Learning Centre offers academic skills support in terms of researching, checking my grammar and referencing. I find this service has helped me to improve my grades and in turn motivates me to continue working hard. I would highly recommend The Learning Centre to all current and future students. This is an invaluable service which has helped me to achieve great results; it is also free and really worth it.”
“I am so grateful that Joblinx could help me get work experience. The program really pushed me forward to utilise my skills and the knowledge I learnt during my studies at JCU Brisbane. More importantly, I would have never gotten the chance to set up professional contacts and relationships at this early stage if I hadn’t turned to Joblinx for help. It is such an invaluable experience and I would highly recommend Joblinx to anyone who is looking for job opportunities.”
"For me, JCU Brisbane was the right choice.
At JCU Brisbane I have found, the University as a whole encourages students to have better attitude to study, which as a result maximises the possibilities for our futures.
Studying under the guidance of teachers that I can trust, I tell myself over and over again that I should not give up on anything until I get to the right place where I can display my abilities."
"Being a student at James Cook University Brisbane I have been motivated to study hard, the academic staff and the campus resources encourage me to concentrate on my studies. The Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree is well structured and has provided me with real world experience in relation to my future career opportunities
I would definitely recommend to study at JCU Brisbane especially if you are an international student, you will achieve what you desire if you invest sufficient effort into it."
"I am very happy to be a student of the MBA Degree at JCU Brisbane. The learning process is a real adventure, the lectures are never boring and full of practical examples and activities.

All the staff are so friendly and supportive, they have always encouraged me to broaden my knowledge and to build my professional career."
"Studying MITHM in JCU Brisbane is one of the most amazing experiences of my student life. Here I’ve sat in many interesting lectures, discovered new and exciting approaches to study, come across friendly teachers and classmates from all over the world, and most importantly boosted my self-esteem and satisfaction after achieving a higher level of education.
Trust me; it is a precious experience that money can’t buy, so don't hesitate to pack up your things and come here and join us!"
"I chose to complete my MIT at JCU Brisbane because the subjects they were providing were relevant to the career I wanted to pursue in the IT industry.
The professional internship component in particular, of the MIT-MBA Degree, provides students with ample opportunity to gain real world professional experience, and is a great combination of theoretical and practical knowledge."
"I really appreciate the confidence James Cook University Brisbane showed in me by giving me this excellent internship.
I was looking for a big company with an excellent reputation in the market and they found me exactly that. Everything that I have learnt about good business practice, I can now see in a real workplace. It is so important to put in practice what you have been learning in class. This opportunity is so important to improve my qualifications as well as achieve my future goals."
"It is great to see how theories or programs such as SAP that were taught at the university level work in the real business world and how complex logistics management can actually be.
I am very happy with this project as it was a great opportunity be involved in creating new warehousing procedures, making them less complex, more structured and increasing the overall efficiency of the operation. I can see how this will benefit the company and I was happy to be a part of it."
"What I really love about JCU Brisbane is the awesome study environment which turned my study life from fear into enjoyment.
Coming from a completely different background without a shred of accountancy knowledge, I initially felt so stressed about the assignments and exams, however, with the prompt response and patience shown by the lecturers, I was surprised to obtain results well beyond my expectation.What really distinguishes JCU Brisbane from others is the internship opportunity provided. I am currently an intern of Knight Frank Brisbane, an international real estate consultancy. Besides gaining invaluable experience working in an Australian organisation, the finance knowledge is very applicable to my future career."
