Graduate experiences

Previous Graduates share their stories, program experiences and career journeys.

“It has been interesting to be part of the government policy-making process – specifically getting a first-hand insight into how governments produce and share research to inform policy making.”

Sarah, Research Economist / Public Policy Analyst

“The work you receive and the people you work alongside are the best parts of working at the Commission.

Straight out of university, I had the opportunity to work on a homelessness policy in a team of really bright and friendly people.”

Geoffrey, Research Economist / Public Policy Analyst
2022 Graduate

"The highlight of my graduate year was completing the Aged Care Employment project – it was rewarding to see through a project to the finish line.

There are lots of opportunities to engage with stakeholders, and a big focus on writing, which has been a pleasant surprise."

Vivikth, Research Economist / Public Policy Analyst
2022 Graduate

“I’ve worked on a variety of projects since I started as a graduate at the Commission, ranging across topics such as housing assistance, the tax and transfer system, transport regulation and education.

I enjoy that there is always something new to learn, whether that is about a particular sector or an analytical technique.

Since gaining more experience, I’ve also been able to contribute to broader organisational improvements and development opportunities, which have been fulfilling roles.”
