"Our intern was well prepared for their placement. They enthusiastically jumped into the opportunity and took the time to learn about our business and ask great questions. The intern was set up for success and really valued the development provided by Readygrad before the business placement.”

Our Story

Readygrad’s origins date back to 2012 when it was created by Owen Firth, a former recruiter & education entrepreneur, to offer work experience programs to graduates who could not break through to their first career step. Back then, we were known as Performance Careers, and we helped thousands of students and graduates to get started.

In 2017, we came together with Readygrad, a business started by former graduate recruiter Rohan Holland, to train students and graduates to prepare for the job search process and the workplace.

We merged to create one of Australia’s leading graduate employability specialists, delivering impactful training and work experience solutions to students, educators and graduate recruiters that make a difference to graduate outcomes.

Today, we are as passionate as ever about raising the bar on graduate employability. We provide scalable work experience opportunities to the students of a university partner, deliver the hard truth about the recruitment process through webinars & online learning, or help a corporate partner better engage with the right graduates.

We look forward to seeing how we can help you!
