Employment Conditions & Salaries

Questions regarding graduate income levels, working conditions and future earning potential are common when considering career pathway options and further study.

Educate yourself on your employment rights and responsibilities, including understanding your employment contract and rates of pay. Whether you are completing a job trial, commencing your first part-time or casual position, or have secured a graduate opportunity, take the time to advance your knowledge of your workplace rights and responsibilities.

The discipline specific Career Guides, available at Where Your Degree Can Lead, provide information specific to your chosen field, including salary surveys conducted by professional associations, industry specific recruitment agencies and tracking of trends in job advertisements.

Reliable online resources can supply useful information on salary trends, relevant to experience. Graduate Careers Australia provide an annual survey including 'Grad Jobs & Dollars', up-to-date information on graduate outcomes such as employment rates and salaries, by field of study and level of award.
