At Fusion Graduate Development, we are addressing the holistic needs of Graduates, and we now have Australia’s leading online customised Graduate Portal to complement and support the best Graduate development programs.
The second cycle of graduate recruitment is well under way, with most applicants having to complete cognitive assessments, video interviews and assessment centres as part of a standard recruitment process. What seems to be a trend across companies is the amount of drop offs of candidates reneging on offers, even if previously accepted.
Now that recruitment is wrapping up, for most Organisations, it’s time to shift focus to conducting program reviews and checking in on the health of YOUR graduate program!
The AAGE Industry Awards have crept up on us quickly, and I cannot believe it is under a month away! The Australian Association of Graduate Employers, or better known as the AAGE, is hosting their awards event this year in Sydney which means Fusion will be having an enjoyable holiday to the Opera House this year.
Fusion’s 2017 Masterclass series saw some great discussions and sharing of individual experiences and challenges amongst participants. Over forty people attended the Melbourne event, from a range of private/public/large and small organisations, and there were similarly strong numbers in Sydney and Brisbane.
As we look forward to the changing workforce within 2018, a new generation begins to occupy a large percentage of our everyday working lives, it is a great time to think strategically and prepare our graduates for leadership roles within the future. Millennials and iGen are taking over the workplace, as iGen are born 1996 to present and Millennials are born 1977 to 1995.Read More
At Fusion, we like to push the boundaries of innovation and we’re committed to expanding our knowledge and exploring global trends that are relevant (or thought-provoking) here in Australia. Over the years we have consistently witnessed the latest trends in the US, UK and Canadian markets and most recently our Director, David Cvetkovski, returned from being a guest at the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) conference in Brighton, UK.Read More
Who are iGen?
iGen (sometimes also referred to as Generation Z), are those who are born from 1996 onwards and are the generation immediately following the often talked about Millennials.
Fusion has expanded over the summer and has hired new employees who all have provided a diverse range of skills as well as ideas to our current processes. They’re making a significant impact already, in and out of the office! Meet Luke, Robbie and Aiesha.Read More
It has been a busy but extremely exciting few months on the development front at Fusion with inductions happening across the country. Fusion have had the opportunity to work with small intimate graduate cohorts ranging in size from eight-to-30 up to larger cohorts of 130 graduates. Each group, no matter the size, provides challenges and opportunities to prepare graduates for their transition to business life.Read More
Campaign time has already seen plenty of activity at Fusion with a good chunk of Assessment Centres completed and offers to candidates already on the table! And the next couple months are shaping up to just as busy. Read More
AAGE has once again proved to be the go-to event for Graduate Employers wanting to source the latest information, programs, and expertise in order to enhance their graduate programs. The latest recruitment initiatives were on display at the conference, along with new approaches for development programs to improve the developmental journey of graduates.
It’s a little premature to be talking about your 2017 Assessment Centres now, right? Wrong. Australia’s leading Graduate Managers are planning for it now.
During our recent Australia-wide Masterclass series, Fusion became aware of a considerable demand from Graduate Managers for information around both Success & Development Profiling and the customisation of Development Programs. In response to this, earlier this month the Fusion Development team delivered a breakfast seminar to 20 of the leading graduate managers in Melbourne, in which we launched the latest Profiling and Development research analysis, showcasing the Top 5 Graduate Profiling findings.
Congratulations to the 2016 AAGE Award Nominees!
Fusion Graduate Consultancy would like to congratulate our Clients and Partners who have been nominated in the various categories of the AAGE Awards, and wish them all the best!
150 of Australia’s leading Graduate Managers from a diverse range of small, medium and large private and government organisations attended our Graduate Recruitment and Development Masterclass series held around Australia during September.
At our recent breakfast seminar in Melbourne, we released the results of our latest graduate profiling analysis: examining behavioural preferences of Australian graduates over the past two years. As the majority of the recruitment programs we deliver include behavioural assessments, we are in a fortunate position to have access to over 800 graduates’ individual behavioural results over the past 2 years, across a range of different industries.Read More
Based on thought provoking discussions with some of Australia’s leading Graduate Managers at our recent Australia-wide Masterclass Series we thought it timely to expose the Top 5 Graduate Recruitment & Development trends evolving in our Industry.
Often graduate employers and managers are so focused on their selection and retention strategies (which, don’t get me wrong, are both critical to the success of any good graduate program) that they can forget their attraction or marketing strategies. As graduate employers, we must ask ourselves: how can we select the best and brightest graduates, if we have failed to ATTRACT them in the first place?
There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to graduate programs (recruitment process in particular). A very common example of this is the amount of energy and effort spent on students having a killer cover letter and CV – when really, many employers would shortlist almost solely on the basis of an online application form in the first instance.
