Australian Resume Etiquette

Hi there,

Got my 309 visa back in August and now I'm planning on getting a job in Australia after I finish graduate school in the US in December of 2020. As I prepared for the graduate program hiring season in March, I thought I should get myself up to speed with the culture. My field of study is Computer Science and I'm looking for a career in the in the field of software engineering.

I had an internship with a small company in the US this past summer and that will be on my resume. But I have another internship lined up (meaning I got an offer and I took the job) for next summer (June 2020) with a big name (one of the As in FAAMG) tech company in the US. I think this experience will make my resume really shine despite my lack of "local experience". I want to maximize my chance of my resume getting through the first round of screening (because my schools and experiences are both US based) and so I'm considering if I should put my "future" internship experience on my resume.

The feedback from my school's career coach is that, in the US, he thinks the benefit of making the resume standout outweighs the potential risk. What about in Australia? What is your personal opinion and/or experience.

My backup plan is to work in the US after graduation and apply for experienced roles after I get my PR in about 2 years. But the long distance relationship is not ideal.

Thanks the input, love to hear your thoughts.
