10 Secrets of Success in Securing Graduate Employment

Graduate job search is much more than getting your resume together and applying online for jobs. There are too many graduates who have this covered. This seminar is designed to help you to stand out from the crowd.

It is aimed at FINAL YEAR STUDENTS & GRADUATES (but students from any year are welcome). It is never too early (or late!) to learn how to succeed in finding graduate employment. The key is to start now, take action and seek help when you need it.

Taking it to the next level – Interchange Consultancy

interchangeYou may not know their faces but most Griffith students will be familiar with their events when deciding their future career path. Most of us have attended the Tertiary Studies Expo (TSXPO) which is Australia’s largest careers expo offering study options from over 250 representatives. Interchange Consultancy is the brainchild of couple Shane Lynch and Hedy van Hofwegen which started in 1997 with their first careers expo for the Gold Coast region. An interesting correlation to this story is that Shane and Hedy are Griffith graduates who studied Business and Science respectively.

Shane’s previous experience in HR, training colleges and attending hundreds of expos as an exhibitor gave him the inside edge into educational expos. “I got the feel of what it was like on the other side of the booth. I used to make a few little notes about what was good about it and what I didn’t like about it,” he explains. From there, it ignited a business idea which is gaining momentum every year and now covers six major careers expos.

Behind the Scenes – Careers Week

Career Fair Image

It’s a hub of activity here at the Careers and Employment office as we finalise all the preparations for the Careers Fair happening this week at Griffith. If you aren’t aware, it is peak grad recruitment season as company recruiters busily tour the country talking, promoting and encouraging uni students to apply for their programs. This week it is Queensland’s turn as industry visits the Nathan campus on Tuesday and Gold Coast on Thursday culminating with Australia’s biggest career expo, The Big Meet, where up to 100 companies will be looking for high quality graduates and undergraduates. In the past weeks, our team has been putting together the Careers Fairs and promoting the benefits of the event in assisting with the hunt for employment after university. But let’s be honest, there can be so much going on at uni sometimes that you can completely miss the email or reminder from your lecturer about upcoming events which may help you take a closer step towards your future life.
