  • Grad Employment Bootcamp

    Grad Employment Bootcamp

    Are you thinking about graduate jobs?  The Grad Employment Bootcamp is a great way to learn more about sourcing and applying for graduate opportunities.  Over 5 weeks qualified Career Development Practitioners will lead you through job search techniques, branding and marketing tools and practical sessions to develop your interview skills. The sessions are tailored to final year students sourcing and applying for graduate opportunities but the content would also be relevant for students applying for work experience opportunities.

    Part 1: Sourcing Graduate Jobs

    The Sourcing Graduate Jobs seminar is Faculty specific, however, the job search techniques will be useful for all disciplines, and could also suit students looking for work experience. We will be looking at specific websites and alternative sources and techniques which could be utilised during the job-hunting process.

    Part 2: Applications

    The Applications seminar will guide you through the recruitment process and in particular, how to complete online applications and address selection criteria for Graduate Programs. This is for final year students applying for graduate jobs (any discipline). You will be guided through how to formulate your selection criteria responses, as well as how to best present yourself in online applications and learn about psychometric testing.

    Part 3: Branding via LinkedIn

    LinkedIn is a global network for professionals with more than 300 million members. It is the way that professionals connect, engage and access knowledge and career building resources. This session is an interactive, hands-on development session intended to maximise your LinkedIn profile. Please note: As this session will focus on developing your profile, please create an account for LinkedIn prior to attending the workshop (

    Part 4: Interviews

    The Interviews session is a practical session where you can practice answering typical interview questions. 

    Pre workshop preparation:

    We have a huge number of videos, articles and tips on preparing for interviews available in our Career Skills platform (use your Uni ID and password to access them) and you can also review our Interview Guide (pdf) and/or Online Interview Module within CareerHub for more information. In these resources above you can learn about:

    • Types of interviews

    • Appropriate attire and behaviours for the interview

    • Interview techniques for answering questions

    • Learn about using the STAR Model - We will have a practice of this technique in the interview session so it is a good idea to think of some examples to use in the session.

    Practice Session:

    Booking into this event will allow you time to practice your interview techniques with other students from the Uni. We will:

    • practice introductions

    • flesh out and practice your answer to 'tell me about yourself'

    • develop and practice some behavioural questions using the STAR Model as a framework.

    Part 5: Assessment Centre – practice session

    This interactive workshop will simulate a real-life assessment centre which is often the final stage of the recruitment process. Students will receive oral feedback on their performance in the assessment centre tasks. The session will be 2.5 hours of practice - undertaking activities that simulate real assessment centre tasks. Students will be given verbal feedback on their performance in the assessment centre tasks.


    Interested? Look out for communications from Career Services in February and keep an eye out for the events to be listed in CareerHub.  Sessions traditionally run in the first half of Semester 1.
