Data Driven Rankings

We use hundreds of thousands of data points from our database to rank the Top100 graduate employers throughout the recruitment year.

Actual Student Data

Employers are ranked based on actual measured student application behaviour, and not survey data, which can be unreliable with high levels of human error and inaccuracy.

High Success Rate

More than 70% of students who successfully obtain a position in a large graduate program use GradConnection when looking for their first graduate job (AAGE Candidate Survey)

Large Database

GradConnection works with over 430,000 graduate and internship employers in Australia.

Website Traffic

During peak months, 303,000 of unique Australian visitors visit our site to look for open opportunities.

What We Measure

We determine graduate employer popularity by the number of unique university student and graduate applicants they attract.

We do not measure the employer programs directly or base our rankings on the aspirations of the employer.

Limitations and Biases

To be eligible for consideration, employers must have advertised graduate opportunities on
au.gradconnection.com at some point during the Top100 Awards calendar year.

Note that this indicates that employers offering opportunities in multiple locations, across multiple disciplines, or at multiple times throughout the calendar year are more relevant to a broader set of graduates and therefore will naturally have a higher number of interested applicants in a given year.
