34th Annual AAGE Graduate Recruitment & Development Conference

Wednesday 26th October - Friday 28th October 2022
Crown Conference Centre, 8 Whiteman Street, Southbank, Melbourne, Australia

Please be aware that the holding of the 2022 conference is dependent upon compliance with coronavirus restrictions imposed by the Government and the Crown Conference Centre. Any restrictions in place in October 2022 may prevent us from holding the conference as a 'face to face' event or may limit the number of delegates that can attend a 'physical event'. If you are booking flights and accommodation then we suggest that you choose options that are refundable. If we are unable to hold a 'face to face' conference then we will provide you with a refund or credit for the full conference registration fee.

STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Reimagined and Sustainable Early Talent Programs‚Äč

As we face a vibrant and competitive talent market, organisations are hoping to emerge from the cocoon of the pandemic and stand out from the crowd. How can we reimagine attraction, selection and development in the early careers space to meet the future of work? If sustainability is retainability, how can we connect candidates and employees with our organisation’s purpose and help them find theirs?

Energised by the opportunity to expand pipelines for student and graduate talent, focusing on their development and retention, the 2022 AAGE Conference takes a refreshing approach to professional development to give delegates what they need to stand out from the crowd.

The conference program will offer delegates the perfect mix of professional and personal development through keynotes, workshops, interactive discussion forums and networking opportunities.

Over the last three decades we have developed a unique conference format that encourages the open sharing of knowledge and experience, which serves to elevate the graduate recruitment industry as an increasingly important, strategic part of a business.

You can learn about the latest innovations at the conference expo, benchmark yourself against AAGE survey results and celebrate best practice at the AAGE Graduate Recruitment Industry Awards.

Employer delegates also have the opportunity to attend the optional FREE Pre-Conference Leader or Practitioner Seminar, to be held concurrently on Wednesday 26th October at 9.00am. The Practitioner session is for representatives who are new to the industry (0-2 years' experience) and the Leader session is for representatives who are responsible for managing strategic direction (2+ years' experience).
