Jayita Nandi

As a part of my Master’s degree in Civil Engineering, which I pursued at CQ University (CQU), I had to complete an Internship Work Experience unit. For this purpose, my placement provider nominated by CQU was Readygrad. From the very first day, Readygrad helped me to develop self-confidence and guided me through my internship journey. I had the opportunity to fine-tune my resume, and get the skills to perform well at host company interviews, which helped me get a 12 week placement with one of Australia’s leading construction company – Winslow Constructors.

Before joining the host organization, the Readygrad team carried out the induction at the university to prepare interns on workplace behaviour best practices and how to maintain proper attitude at work. Readygrad was in constant contact with me throughout my internship, and guided me through the experience ensuring things were going well in the host company and that I had all the support needed at all the times.

I had a wonderful experience working with Winslow Constructors. This journey of 12 weeks taught me the real engineering practice, how to work in an Australian business environment, and how to put engineering theoretical knowledge into practice. I developed better communication skills and how to interact with other team members. I also improved time management skills and organizational capability. I am very happy and satisfied with the placement opportunity I undertook at Winslow. My sincere gratitude to CQUniversity and the Readygrad team for providing me with such an amazing placement.

My mentor motivated me every time to learn project, he handed me tasks to do in the start and then allowed me to work individually so I could handle tasks with confidence. It was the best thing and helped me to learn more about their systems.

It was a quick process to get a placement, it was feasible and helped me get into a company that actually allowed me to work on a real project. I was offered a job as a QA Analyst with the company JobReady that I did my internship with. 


I would like to recommend a placement to my friends because it is a great platform to get hands-on experience with different kind of skills. I learned technical skills like server configuration, windows setup, network setup and generic skills like customer service, communication skills and teamwork. I like Readygrad because of the quality education, challenging assessment tasks and supportive placement staff.
