Top100 Graduate Employers and
Future Leaders

Meet Our Future Leader Finalists!

About the competition

Each February, GradConnection partners with Fusion Graduate Consultancy to deliver the Top100 Graduate Employers and Future Leaders national competition.

What began in 2014 as an event solely for students, has quickly evolved to also celebrate Australia’s leading graduate employers and the hard work (and subsequent success) of their previous year’s graduate attraction campaigns.

We also give recognition and shine a light, in a way not currently seen elsewhere, on the best and brightest graduates and future leaders coming out of Australia’s universities.
