Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?

My advice for candidates applying to this company is to be yourself and be prepared.
Graduate, Adelaide
Get involved with the vacation program in third year and keep the contact details of your leader or someone you worked closely with - it is important to have someone within the company that the recruiters can talk to about you! Get to know the industry and keep in touch with developments i.e. by joining EESA and going to the talks. Do some extra-curricular activities through uni to develop soft skills.

Have a good understanding about the company and what works they are involved in. Importantly, understand yourself why you applied to join the company and how you value add.
