Graduate Outcomes Survey

The GOS is administered by the Social Research Centre. Graduates who completed their studies within the past year are invited to participate in the survey.

Congratulations on Graduating from your studies!

Griffith University are currently participating in the Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) – which is a national survey running during May of every new graduate of Australian universities.

We appreciate your feedback on your studies at Griffith University and your success post graduation.

Griffith will take your advice on board and make positive changes to our teaching and student services based on the feedback that you provide. Your participation means more to us than you know!

The GOS is administered by the Social Research Centre and new graduates will receive an email invitation to participate.

If you are unable to access or locate The GOS survey in your email, go to the GOS website and click “I don’t have my login details”.

Timothy shares how he demonstrates continuous improvement during his studies!

Meet Timothy Chew, our Remarkable Student for April, 2019!

Meet Timothy Chew, current Computer Science student and the first Remarkable Student for 2019! Timothy is a member of our Industry Mentoring Program, and makes a concerted effort to be involved in all aspects of the program. He regularly participates in IMP and Careers and Employment networking events, despite being an introvert. He states “Networking events are great to meet new contacts, practice my people skills and see what’s happening in my industry”.

Timothy has also taken on internships whenever the opportunity has presented itself. He believes that learning new skills and participating in activities or events which are outside of his comfort zone will help him to be a more versatile candidate. Timothy advises that “For STEM people, I have found that art and business are two good areas to explore.”

Timothy doesn’t have a rigid career goal, and instead describes himself as a dreamer and an explorer. He says “I want to venture out into the unknown and create what could previously be thought impossible; to turn my ambitions/dreams into a reality.” He is open to all opportunities for career development that come his way.

Timothy has three dot points of advice which will hopefully inspire students who may not currently be as active in career related extracurricular activities as they could be.

“Don’t be afraid to talk to others and try out new things. Be proactive, work hard and work smart. Don’t always go for the easiest route, and strive to always improve yourself” – Timothy Chew


How to Stand Out as a New Graduate!

Recent statistics have shown that each entry level job vacancy advertised in Australia has an average of 20 university graduates competing for the position.  In fact, an article published by The Conversation stated that it takes the average Australian graduate approximately 4.7 years after leaving uni to find a full time job. With scary statistics like this, it’s best to start thinking about your future career options well ahead of your graduation date.  However, if you were having so much fun living up #studentlife that you forgot about the finding a job part at the end of the road, there are still practices you can put into place post-graduation to demonstrate to employers that you are a stand out candidate.
