Supporting graduates to start their careers

Monday, 20 February 2017

Establishing a new career always has challenges, from finding jobs to demonstrating how great you are for a role, or making choices between opportunities (if you have that luxury) and planning for the next step.

For engineering professionals dealing with these challenges, particularly student and graduate engineers, Engineers Australia offers members a suite of resources to help you. These resources were recognised in 2016 as #1 by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers, and we’re adding more in 2017.

- live networking events in Australia and Asia, exclusive to EA members, to connect with employers and graduates

- The Big Meet Careers Expos where you can connect with companies that are recruiting right now

- a refreshed careers webinar series, with webinars each month that feature speakers from industry exploring how you can best start your career.

- online career development support resources on the MyCPD platform.

We recommend them as an opportunity for you to connect with leading employers – from the “traditional” engineering companies to a wide range of organisations that could benefit from your great capabilities.
