Succeed in an Interview

The interview is an opportunity to market yourself and show how well you are suited to the organisation, so preparation is vital to ensuring you perform at your best during an interview.

Graduate Programs

gradGraduate programs are structured, professional development programs run by some organisations, which have roles designed specifically for new or recent graduates across a broad range of study areas.  You typically commence a graduate role after completing your final year of study.

Most employers recruit for their graduate programs between February and March in the year prior to graduates commencing employment and require completion of your degree within the previous two years to be eligible.

 

Many graduate programs are advertised on CareerHub.
