Abstract

Based on 2013 survey data, Graduate Careers Australia reported that graduate employability rates are the lowest they have been in twenty years. Specifically, four months post-graduation, the number of employed undergrads took a nose-dive. This result was across degrees/disciplinary areas. In recognition of the crisis of graduate employability, the Australian Government, Office for Learning and Teaching commissioned three national projects (awarded in December 2013).
