Business & Commerce Graduate Jobs in Melbourne

Projected to overtake Sydney as the largest city in Australia, Melbourne has a wealth of opportunities for graduates, reflected in its relatively young population. The economy has experienced growth in recent years and, as a result, youth unemployment is comparatively low at 13.8%. 

Finding a graduate job in Melbourne

Most business and commerce graduate jobs in Melbourne are offered through graduate programs in either the public or private sector. Applications for these programs generally open in either February or March for a starting date of January or February the year after.

Graduate programs will be advertised on company websites, however companies also use job boards like GradAustralia and social media to advise on application openings. Career fairs are another good way to hear about opportunities and meet potential employers, and are generally advertised at universities. 

The biggest career fair in Melbourne is The Big Meet, which is held in March. It is a free event attended by leading employers including BHP Billiton, Mars Australia, The Westpac Group and Woolworths.
