Show Over 500 Graduate Recruiters the Real You Through GradConnection

Want to show prospective employers more than a peice of paper, or a spiel on a website?

Then upload a 60 second video of the real you!

GradConnection are very excited to announce the official launch of our Graduate Profiles with video capability. What does it mean for you? That you have the opportunity to show employers what they value most in a candidate: oral communication skills (AAGE Graduate Recruiter Survey, 2012).

We already have more than 130 of Australias top companies on our site, and more than 500 graduate recruiters we talk to directly - this is your chance to show them who you are, and why you should be hired!


Employers are using the new "Invite to Apply" function, available only to employers registered on our site.  Employers have been searching through your GradConnection profiles and inviting the candidates they seek to apply to graduate and internship programs.

To mark the launch of the "Invite to Apply" function, we are holding a competition to get you in front of employers - fill out your profile to 100% including the 60second video about you, and you could be one of three candidates from each industry directly sent to graduate recruiters.

The competition will be judged by five of Australias top Graduate Recruiters, and three winners from each industry will be profiled in a feature to Graduate Employers who can then invite winners to apply.

Share this competition on your facebook, and you could win a "share" prize - one of three $100 Coles Myer vouchers, to help boost your uni food/clothing budget!

Awesome! How do I enter?

1 - Like the GradConnection facebook page.

2 - Fill out your profile.

3 - Make an awesome 60 second video about you, and upload it to your profile.

4 - Three winners from each industry, as judged by five of Australias top graduate recruiters, will be profiled and sent straight to graduate recruiters in peak graduate recruitment season- who are using the "Invite to Apply" function!

5. If you tell your friends via facebook, you go in the draw to win one of three $100 Coles Myer vouchers! Make sure you tag the GradConnection page so we can see if you have shared.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Dress well, but remain you
  • State who you are, your career goals, and what you want from an employer  
  • Say why you are right for the industry!

Competition closes March 20, winners announced March 27. Good luck!
