Graduate Destination Survey (GDS)
This component of the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) collects information about the employment status, type of work gained and further study activities of recent graduates.
Based on the methods used by Graduate Careers Australia, in-house analysis of the GDS results is conducted and an annual report is produced. From AGS 2012 onwards, the report is a series of interactive tables. The interactive nature of the report enables you to filter all the GDS results at Faculty, School, Department, Course and Residency levels, and any combination of these. Some examples of the information found in the report are:
- Current employment situation (working full-time, part-time or looking for work)
- Name of employer
- Job title
- Gross annual salary (in Australian dollars)
- Country of employment
- Sector of employment
- Whether the graduates were undertaking further studies.
