Studies show that at graduation, 83% of students do not have a job lined up. In response, we've partnered with Tourism Australia to promote the Working Holiday Visa - which allows anyone 18-30 to live, work and travel in Australia for up to a year - along with the affiliated Working Holiday Programs. The 12 Working Holiday providers we're working with have each agreed to cover the program fee for our 13 winners, including either a job or internship placement, and the visa fees. Travelers insurance will also be covered (thanks to Guard Me) and one Grand Prize winner will also receive a free flight, thanks to Virgin Australia.

For more information about this promotion, visit our Work and Play in Australia contest page or read over our FAQs. The deadline to apply is July 30. Feel free to share this opportunity with your colleagues, campus and students. For the social media minded, we've developed a hashtag to share the contest: #worknplayAUS.
