Celebrating Australia’s Top100 Future Graduates

Top100 Winners with sponsors DBL

Alongside their peers, they've founded thriving businesses. Led hundreds of student societies. Balanced hectic schedules. Scored stellar marks. Played sports on an international level. Some have even worked already in a diverse range of firms such as Woodside, Google, IBM, Pearson, Macquarie Group, Randstad, JP Morgan, PwC and Deloitte already as they clarify their career ambitions.

Yet the one thing they have in common is that they all passed GradConnection and Fusion Graduate Consultancy's very rigorous search with flying colours.

GradConnection’s Inaugural Top100 Awards

Each year, over 200 top graduate employers rely on GradConnection's marketing platform to attract the high calibre graduates their businesses need to grow. They've always been keen to discover who the top students entering their industry are, so they can recruit them first. For them, employability is about so much more than just academic results - it's also about the leadership, volunteering, sports, travel and work experiences students pick up during their degrees. The Top100 was created to satisfy this need.

Which is why we decided to partner up with Paula Gepp and the team at Fusion Graduate Consultancy to design a robust selection process for the Awards. Fusion’s unique recruitment, profiling and development capabilities, along with Paula’s passion about improving the relationship between graduates and prospective employers really shone through. Fusion’s insight was invaluable at every stage of the process.

Through a combination of Written Applications by ReadyGrad, Online Testing by Revelian, Video Interviewing by Vieple, Assessment Centres by Fusion, and prizes by Development Beyond Learning we whittled the list down to the final Top100, who we recognised at the Top100 Awards Gala Dinner.

The Top100 Awards Gala Dinner

Held within the swanky surrounds of Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the Awards Dinner was a prestigious affair attended by over 150 guests. After drinks on the balcony with a breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour, the ceremony was commenced by our MC Tim Maddrens of Hi-5 and the Rocky Horror Show fame.

In between servings of the delicious dinner of sugar cured salmon, Cape Grim beef fillet, organic chicken pave, hazelnut torte and freely flowing wine we enjoyed the presentation of the Awards by our valued employer and recruitment supplier sponsors.
