The Australian Recruitment Cycle

“Working hard for something we care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.” Simon Sinek

Becoming familiar with the recruitment cycle for graduates and current students will give you an added advantage. Major companies have specific recruitment peak periods. Applications generally are advertised in February and late April each year for placements in the mid-year. Graduate roles usually start in February the following year. Vacation programs are advertised in July to September each year although some vacancies are advertised all year round. As such, we recommend applying early to secure an interview.

Career fairs and employer sessions are held on campus during March and April so keep an eye out for StudentHub events. Global positions are generally advertised in October and November so make sure you check Global Grad before heading home.

Before placing yourself in the job market, it is imperative to identify your career goals so spend some time developing a plan to work out learning about yourself and what you enjoy doing. Think about attributes you look for in a job and your career interests. Don’t forget to review your values and personality type. If you’re not a fan of the outdoors, a surveyor role might not be ideal for you.
