What’s happening to graduate employment?
In 2014, new graduates of Australian universities faced the toughest labour market ever for university-qualified people.

At the same time, one in five graduate employers indicated that they would have hired additional staff if more appropriate applicants had been available. This Policy Pitch event looked at what is going on in the graduate labour market and what might be done to improve employment prospects.
