Graduate Testimonials: Fair Work Ombudsman

"In terms of work culture, there’s not much a graduate can complain about. Everyone in the agency, regardless of their seniority, is extremely approachable, and the flexible working hours are the best! Having the option of leaving the office at 4pm (if you start early), before the mad rush of peak hour public transport, is a huge bonus."

With hundreds of students graduating with the same degree as you, how do you stand out to employers?

To help you with this, Deakin University have launched a great initiative called Me in a Minute.

Deakin is offering you the opportunity to create a one minute video of yourself, highlighting your knowledge and capabilities. This video can then be sent to employers or uploaded onto your LinkedIn profile. Deakin does all the filming/editing and did I mention that it’s FREE!
