By now, we are all aware of the impact a leading-edge development program can have on the attraction, retention and the growth of graduates – but the question that is still most often asked is “what more can be done” and “what are the trends that can help to ensure the best return on investment”?
At Fusion Graduate Development, we are addressing the holistic needs of Graduates, and we now have Australia’s leading online customised Graduate Portal to complement and support the best Graduate development programs.
The second cycle of graduate recruitment is well under way, with most applicants having to complete cognitive assessments, video interviews and assessment centres as part of a standard recruitment process. What seems to be a trend across companies is the amount of drop offs of candidates reneging on offers, even if previously accepted.
Now that recruitment is wrapping up, for most Organisations, it’s time to shift focus to conducting program reviews and checking in on the health of YOUR graduate program!
The AAGE Industry Awards have crept up on us quickly, and I cannot believe it is under a month away!

As we look forward to the changing workforce within 2018, a new generation begins to occupy a large percentage of our everyday working lives, it is a great time to think strategically and prepare our graduates for leadership roles within the future. Millennials and iGen are taking over the workplace, as iGen are born 1996 to present and Millennials are born 1977 to 1995. Read More >

Over the years we have consistently witnessed the latest trends in the US, UK and Canadian markets and most recently our Director, David Cvetkovski, returned from being a guest at the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) conference in Brighton, UK.
