As closing dates will vary between businesses and from year to year, check early in your final year at university to ensure you know when applications are due.

Depending upon the area of interest graduates should also consider The Geoscience Australia Graduate Program, an initiative of the Australian government. This opportunity is open to those who hold an Honours degree in an Earth-Science related field. Applications open in March/April each year.
