Graduate recruiting season in full swing at Bond University

Bond University’s annual Careers Fair last week, was attended by hundreds of students and recent graduates who were wooed by some of Australia’s leading employers.

The fair gave students the opportunity to meet face-to-face with 36 potential employers eager to promote their organisation’s graduate and internship opportunities.

Kirsty Mitchell from Bond University’s Career Development Centre said the focus for this year was on quality, with a high calibre of employers taking part, including General Electric, National Australia Bank, Westpac, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), Accenture, the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), and the Defence Material Organisation.

“The fair was a huge success with a number of leading organisations on display,” Ms Mitchell said.

“We also had three Bond graduates - who have successfully been through the graduate process - return to campus to volunteer at their employers’ stalls acting as advocates for Bond.  They were very keen to come back and help fellow Bondies.”

She said employers often commented on the high quality of Bond University’s students and graduates.

“We’ve had a number of employers, including Macquarie Group and Credit Suisse, indicate that Bond has had among the highest number of applications to hires in previous years, meaning our students and graduates are up there with the best in Australia.

“As such, these employers were keen to return to campus to try and secure some of Australia’s brightest and best talent for their next graduate intake,” Ms Mitchell said.

GE, OneSteel and Australian Secret Intelligence Service were several other graduate employers that gave presentations to Bond University students during the Career Fair.

“The Careers Fair is an opportunity for Bond University students to see a wide variety of graduate placement opportunities in the one spot,” she said.
