A graduate program is a recruitment program usually lasting a minimum of 1 year, and anywhere up to 3 years. On a graduate program, candidates will usually undertake a rotational program where they learn many different disciplines, i.e. they might work across sales, business operations, client services and marketing over the course of 18 months. Graduate programs can be helpful for career development, as they aim to develop future leaders and improve skill sets.
Across Australia, graduate programs are fairly common, and can often be a great stepping stone for graduates to get their foot in the door at a larger company.

Most graduate jobs in Australia do require you to have a degree.

The first place to start is making sure that you know exactly what you want to do. Refining your job search is a good way to keep focused, so do some research on the type of company, and the specifics of the job roles you’re interested in applying for.
When you’re ready to apply for graduate jobs, start by making sure that your graduate CV is perfect; there is plenty of CV advice online to help you out.
Then, make sure you are organised throughout your job search; keeping a note of where you are in each application process.
