New calendar of events for a new world. Bringing you to where the students are to promote your graduate and vacation programs

Raising your profile at Deakin University

Are you an employer that students are desperate to work for? Do students know who you are, what you do, and who you are looking to recruit?

The key to connecting with the right graduates is by getting your brand out on campus in a number of different ways. Deakin University understands this, and provides employers with the opportunity to use a variety of mediums to raise your profile and to ensure you are at the forefront of the students' minds come graduation time.

The Graduate Employment team offers a number of services to help you raise your profile, or we can work with you to come up with a solution that's just right for your business.
