Through a national survey of graduate recruitment coordinators, this study identified current recruitment and selection practices in Australia. Respondents (n=50) were mostly from private industry with about a third from the government sector, the full range of industry sectors was represented. Respondents were asked about the management of recruitment activities, methods used to communicate recruiting information, and the perceived accuracy of recruitment information. Information was also sought about the extent that job analyses were used, type of selection practices used, how applicant information was verified, the training and selection of interviewers and the effectiveness of recruitment activities. Descriptive statistics were used to provide a summary of the findings. A regression analysis was used to examine predictors of (a) recruiting effectiveness, (b) acceptance rates, and (c) unfilled vacancies. The results were compared with other studies of recruitment and selection. Future research and practical applications were discussed.
