Congratulations to our Top 100 Graduate Employers 2017

Posted by Georgina

This year marks GradConnection’s 3rd annual Top 100 Graduate Employers of Australia Awards in conjunction with Fairfax’s Australian Financial Review. The list ranks the most popular graduate programs in Australia as voted by student clicks on the GradConnection site.

Each year two thirds of Australia’s University student’s visit GradConnection in search of the best graduate employment opportunities throughout Australia. During peak graduate recruitment season this equates to 200,000 unique views of 350 plus employer graduate and internship programs from around Australia.

To compile our Top 100, we track which employers had the most application clicks on the site based on actual user behaviour recorded over 12 months. The ranking of each employer in the list is a reflection of student interest in their graduate program.
