The National Careers Forum was an initiative launched in 2007 to support collaboration between employers and the university sector to address the skills shortage. This initiative was funded through the AAGE by the Australian Government's Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. The inaugural event was held on Thursday 6th December 2007 and the final event was held on Friday 17th June 2011.
The purpose of the National Careers Forum was to bring together employers, university representatives and other key stakeholders in a series of twice yearly meetings to discuss, identify and implement strategies that will help university graduates find suitable employment. The aims were:
1. To help employers fill job vacancies
2. To help students find jobs
3. To help address skills shortages
