This article is a snapshot of career development and work integrated learning in the Australian higher education sector, which is aimed at gearing-up graduates with the skills that demonstrate their employability. Such practices are now recommended by Australian government and are based on self-management theory. They are designed to enhance graduate soft skills in the context of collaboration between academic and work environments. The article concludes with a commentary on Australia’s national statement of career development competencies.
