How to find work and apply

The following businesses (and others) have specific Marketing Graduate and/or Internship Programs. These types of large businesses will often attend university career events, so make sure you take the opportunities these types of events offer to find out more. As closing dates vary, and the process can be long, make sure you check the closing dates early in your last year of study:

The Prysmian Group has a program aimed at sales graduates held each year in Sydney. Applications close in November each year for a January start.

Marketing and sales graduates should also check out a range of other graduate jobs mentioned on this website, particularly ‘Media, Advertising & PR Graduate Jobs’ and ‘Business & Commerce Graduate Jobs’.

As an example, a business like Optus offers a graduate development program which sees graduates rotate for two years throughout the business. Marketing and sales will be an important part of this program, but graduates will also have the opportunity to see how other areas of the business operate.

Competition for graduate roles specific to marketing are somewhat limited, but as degrees related to marketing and sales are versatile, it is not anticipated graduates will have too much difficulty securing a relevant position.

Location

Capital cities will have the most positions available for graduates.

Average graduate salaries

The medium starting salaries for marketing and sales graduate jobs is between $45k and $50k.

BHP Graduate Profile Image- Mansi

I have been working at the Olympic Dam mine for the past year and I have to say, it has been an amazing experience so far! Olympic Dam is located in South Australia and I live in a town about 20km away from the site. Our site is quite unique because we go through the entire process from mining the ore to selling the final products all at the same site – how cool is that!? We produce copper, uranium and even silver and gold!
