NZAGE Employer & Graduate Surveys

The Employer and Graduate surveys are run annually and provide comprehensive insights into a range of key factors that drive the attraction, recruitment and selection strategies of New Zealand graduate employers. You will be able to complete this within 10-20 minutes.


Graduate Survey

The Graduate Survey is designed to survey all candidates who have been offered a graduate/internship position with an employer. Hence, you can use this survey to collect feedback from your own candidates who have been offered a position or role on a student programme. The Survey collects data on a range of issues including: factors influencing choice of employer; most used sources of careers information; reasons for accepting/declining graduate positions; expected length of stay with new employer and views on the best employer in each market sector.

In order to participate, you simply need to forward a communication e-mail to all candidates who have been offered a graduate, intern, vacation or co-op position to start later this year or early in the year. It should also include the graduates that declined your offer as well.  We encourage employers to forward the e-mail to your candidates as soon as possible, so that we can capture their views whilst they are still fresh.


Employer Survey

The Employer Survey is designed to survey all New Zealand employers who hire graduates, no matter what capacity the graduate/s or youth are hired (i.e. entry level role or graduate programme). The Survey collects data on a range of issues including: most used and most effective attraction strategies; what selection techniques an organisation uses (i.e interview, testing, assessment centre) and how employers keep in touch and onboard new graduates or youth into junior roles.

In order to participate, you simply need to complete the link sent out to each NZAGE member. The survey is simple and should take someone no longer than 10-20 minutes to complete. If you are not an NZAGE Employer Member and would like to participate in completing this survey please contact our Administrator to be added to the email invite list.


Who else takes part?

A large number of New Zealand and Australian employers who regularly hire graduates, interns or offer clerkships as well as employers who recruit ad-hoc tertiary students into entry level roles.
