Abstract

[Abstract]: Australian graduates generally do well with respect to overall employment outcomes; however, their performance in the workplace has come under significant scrutiny in recent years with some industries complaining that many graduates lack the necessary practical skills to perform in the early years of transition into employment. This paper reports on an innovative program which adopts a three streamed approach to the transition process to help develop employability skills within business graduates to further address the needs of Australian industry.
