“Three years after the global financial crisis we are still seeing its lingering effects as graduate recruiter activity in the labour market remains flat. However, our research also shows that unemployment is not a long-term concern for graduates and it’s important to understand that getting a degree is not about the first job after university: it’s about the potential for huge personal growth and a life-time of advantage in the labour market.”

GCA Research Manager, Mr Bruce Guthrie


Graduate employment trends
Graduate employment trends still seeing its lingering effects as graduate recruiter activity in the labour market remains flat. However, our research also shows that unemployment is not a long-term concern for graduates and it’s important to understand that getting a degree is not about the first job after university: it’s about the potential for huge personal growth and a life-time of advantage in the labour market.”

These figures come from the Australian Graduate Survey, which is an annual survey of graduates from Australian higher education institutions. More than 168,000 graduates responded in 2011.

  • 76 per cent of new bachelor degree graduates available for full-time employment had found a job within four months of completing their studies. This is comparable with the 2010 figure and down from around 79 per cent in 2009 .

  • Bachelor degree graduates from the fields of mining engineering, medicine and pharmacy achieved the best employment outcomes in 2010, with more than 97 per cent of graduates from these fields securing full-time employment within four months of graduation

  • New graduates who found full-time employment employed a number of strategies, with one-in-four graduates (26.4 per cent) in a full-time job having found that job via the internet. An additional 14.5 per cent found their jobs via personal networks (family and friends), one-in-ten found their job via their university careers service, and the remainder used a variety of strategies including approaching employers directly.
