It’s easy to be become disheartened when applying online, but when you network correctly, finding work becomes far easier & more enjoyable.

The program consists of seven modules spanning up to 6 months and includes step by step videos, written materials and one on one coaching sessions. All materials can be accessed from any mobile, tablet or laptop, no matter where you are.

The Graduate coach has been assisting graduates to find work since 2012, and literally, thousands of graduates have been assisted. The way I coach is customised to the needs of the graduate, firstly you must understand what options you have, and then you must select the sectors that best suit your needs. We then have to go about preparing you to engage directly with people in the industry.

Testimonials from Students

November 20, 2021

It was a pleasure to work with Mark. Anyone who has a struggle about getting a job in the industry should seek help and the graduate coach training which is provided by Mark is a great way to do it. Because, It is not easy for graduate engineers to go out there and look for job, if you do not have the right motivation and also if you do not know how to approach to the companies including lifting the spirit in yourself. Mark has a broad knowledge in the industry and he is an expert in how to pave the path for graduate engineers. I was able to secure work position within less than 4 months after I started to work with him. Thank you Mark!
