How do I find graduate jobs in Australia?

What is a graduate job?

Graduate roles in Australia are typically permanent employment roles for recent university leavers. Graduate jobs are often targeted at highly-motivated grads with degrees or a strong interest in accounting, commerce, technology, computer science, data, mathematics, engineering, humanities, and other leading disciplines. Many Australian businesses have official graduate programs that can either provide a permanent employment arrangement or internships.

Where can I find a graduate job?

There are many opportunities around the country for graduate jobs, particularly in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. So it's crucial to research when vacancies or intakes are advertised. Many internships are designed as graduate jobs since the arrangement provides both employers and graduates with the opportunity to trial a person in the role for a certain period of time, without them needing to join on a permanent employment basis. Many graduates and recent university leavers can often secure their first permanent job via an internship.

Who offers graduate jobs?

Graduate jobs are offered by businesses - or graduate employers - in order to attract and hire the best and brightest straight out of university, kickstarting their careers and recruiting talent ahead of their market competitors. This is certainly the case in profitable sectors such as technology. Graduate jobs and official programs are therefore widespread in most of the developed world and becoming a more appealing channel for young candidates and university students to launch their careers.
