Australia has been, in relative terms, sheltered from the severe health impacts of the COViD pandemic. As an island in the southern hemisphere, its ability to close its borders has enabled it to manage the impact of the virus spread, when compared to the rest of the world. The impacts economically are of course real and so the affect this has had on the higher education sector has been significant as international students were either unable to travel to Australia or were isolated in Australia. For those isolated in Australia their access to casual work was drastically decreased meaning financial hardship for many, affecting their ability to study.
The panel will explore the effects on international students and their education experience in Australia during the pandemic as well as the impact on services that provide career support as funding was cut and jobs were lost, many of them in the career support area. The panel will then finally explore the flow on effect into the graduate recruitment market from a quality perspective and how it impacted on methods of hiring, when recruitment desires for many organisations was still high.
