What is the Grad Hub?
The Aussie Corporate’s Grad Hub is our premium one-stop-shop for resources and guides to help aspiring Aussie Corporates through undergraduate recruiting. Our Grad Hub offers industry insights, A-Z blueprints for landing roles, and access to tailored 1-on-1 feedback for your application materials. Simply put, this is our community-backed hub that gives you access to resources curated by Australian professionals, designed to help you navigate the university and recruiting world down under.
Why should I use your services and resources?
No other website is tailored to the Australian market and no other suite of resources will take you from zero to potentially landing a graduate role in Australia. Our guide(s) leverage off the experience of professionals in the industry and explain how to give yourself the competitive edge that every university student is looking for.
When should I start preparing my applications?
Preparation is paramount when you have to juggle university, your extracurriculars, part-time jobs and grad/penultimate year applications. This period is truly one of the most stressful and draining periods so frontloading any prep goes a long way. We would recommend keeping an eye out on the key dates included on this page and giving yourself a few months to familiarise yourself with the application process and firms you want to apply to before applications open. This will also give us time to help you on your journey of becoming an Aussie Corporate.
Another thing is that some firms (especially banking) hire on a rolling basis which means you will have more of a chance if you apply sooner rather than later.
How much time should I account for each application?
The time will differ depending but usually tail off the more applications you do. This is why we generally suggesting starting this whole process 1-2 months in advance. The bulk of time spent on the initial phase of the application process will be on refining your CV and cover letter (which we provide premium services for). Naturally, firms which you place a higher priority on will also take longer as you will want to spend more time on making sure your application is as strong as possible (and doesn't have any typoes!).
How many applications should I be doing?
This one is simple. Aim for as many as you can. It is ultimately a numbers game and this is why we recommend giving yourself ample time to prepare your applications. Check out this page for the list of firms that are offering internships and start writing! Prioritise larger firms first and work your way down the pecking order. This is because larger firms offer more spots and therefore again, it is a numbers game.
Can you guarantee me an internship or grad role?
Unfortunately, no one can guarantee you a role. However, we can provide you all the necessary tools and info (including personalised feedback and a mountain of support) to give you the very best chance of landing the role. We’ve formulated resources that can take you from scratch to boasting an extremely competitive application, getting you one step closer to that graduate position. We’re here to equip you for your AusCorp journey by giving you the leg up we wish we had.
