06 May 2016

Video sponsored by ETS TOEFL. Supported by Navitas.

IEAA has released a new guide for Australian employers who wish to provide work opportunities or employment for international students.

"Australia is home to more than half a million international students. These students are a valuable, and largely untapped, resource for Australian employers," said Phil Honeywood, Chief Executive Officer at IEAA.

International students and graduates can help:

  • diversify your organisation
  • enhance cultural capital and
  • expand international networks.

The guide serves as a starting point for employers who wish to provide employment opportunities to international students and graduates – as part of a mentoring program, work-integrated learning placement, internship or ongoing graduate role.

The accompanying video (see above) highlights three successful examples of the benefits that international graduates can bring to the workplace.
