Australian universities viewed well on resumes
What’s the best university name in the world to put on your resume?
You may have guessed the likes of Harvard or MIT—and you’re right, but there are Australian universities ranked very highly on that list as well!
The Graduate Employability Rankings, based on the views of 42,000 employers, shows the universities most likely to impress graduate recruiters. Produced by the QS group that also publishes the annual World University Rankings, this table demonstrates that students are considering future job prospects as well as academic achievement. While many of the world’s top universities produce high-achieving graduates every year, employers frequently express concerns that academic institutions aren’t doing enough to prepare their students for the world of work.
In the rankings survey, employers were asked where they recruit their most “competent, innovative and effective” graduates. The rankings also take into account employment statistics for former students, where graduates in top jobs studied and the range of partnerships between universities and employers.
The Aussie unis listed below are part of a wider trend which sees Australian universities perform particularly well for graduate employability.
