Information for final year students
Many major companies will be advertising and recruiting for their graduate programs throughout the academic year. These programs are aimed at people studying in their final year, who will be able to commence work in the following year. Some of these companies will have closing dates in the first semester.
To maintain a competitive edge, the following tips should be kept in mind:
Update your resume
Check for vacancies
Attend any activities on campus that will involve contact with potential employers:
- Recruitment Information Sessions
- Professional Association activities
- Career Expos
Research companies you are interested in - their business, their recruitment process, appropriate contact details. Start with publications like Graduate Opportunities to see who recruits people with your degree. Company web sites also often contain recruitment details.
Develop your job interview skills by practising. Check with Careers & Employment about their practice interview sessions, or pick up a copy of the Interview Techniques booklet.
