Graduate Survey


This annual survey summarises the views and experiences of around 2,500 graduates who have been in employment for around 12 months. The survey collects data from graduates on a range of attitudes and opinions towards their current employer and about their experiences so far on their graduate program.

Why is it useful?

Employers use the survey results to understand the experiences of graduates during their first year of employment and their views on 'expectations versus reality'.

When does it happen?

Data collection for the Graduate Survey takes place in December and January each year. Participation is free. A summary report is released in June. We invite every employer on our database to participate.

The responses collected from the Graduate Survey are also used to create the AAGE's annual list of the Top Graduate Employers in Australia.
