Give A Grad A Go are bringing our expertise to Australia, to help graduates seek entry-level opportunities, having already been widely regarded as the UK's leading graduate jobs and recruitment experts.
For graduates in Australia, this page should help to answer any questions about the graduate recruitment process. If your question isn’t answered below, please contact us and we would be more than happy to answer any further questions you have.
To help you find the best graduate positions in Australia, we first need to find out about you - this includes your education, skills, any previous work experience, and what you want to get out of your career. If you don't know yet, that’s also fine - we are here to help you refine your job search.
The first step in finding graduate jobs is to create your profile on our website. Once you have completed your profile and entered your job match preferences, we will update you via email about the graduate jobs that match what you are looking for.
Create your profile on Give A Grad A Go here - and start your search for graduate jobs in Australia.
Once you are registered, you can start your job search and find jobs across Australia. Initially, we will be based in Melbourne, so you can expect to find graduate jobs in Melbourne on our website.
This list will grow as our presence amongst graduates in Australia expands - and we are also looking to start offering graduate jobs in Sydney, graduate jobs in Perth, graduate jobs in Brisbane, and more.
Applying for a job process:
When applying for a job on our website, we have purposely made the application process very straightforward. If you find a graduate job you like the look of, all you need to do is choose the appropriate CV and hit ‘send’. You can store various versions of your graduate CV on your profile.
We will review your CV and decide whether your profile matches what the client is looking for in a graduate hire.
If your application is successful, you will receive a call to run through your skills, experiences, and your graduate career preferences.
They will also tell you about the company and the role, and you will be asked about why you think you would be a good fit. Following this call, you will be asked to go away and research the company online - this is a vital step to show that you are interested in the role and understand what the company does.
Once the Consultant decides that you would be a good fit, and you have confirmed your interest in the job opportunity, they will shortlist you, and send your CV & profile to the employer for them to review your job application.
It’s up to the client whether they'd like to invite you to interview stages.
If your job application is successful, we will work closely with you to prepare your answers to interview questions. Following the interview, a Consultant will call you to run through your feedback, how you found the interview and let you know the employer’s feedback.
If your job application is unsuccessful, our team will reconvene to look for other graduate opportunities you'd be well-suited to - or, you can keep applying for graduate jobs on the Give A Grad A Go job board.
If you get the job - congratulations on your new role! We will work with the employer to organise your start date, any references they require, and your employment contract.
If you are unsuccessful, please don’t be disheartened. We'll get interview feedback directly from the company, and will keep you in mind for similar graduate opportunities that come up.
