 2011: 25% Audit feedback response

             Audit Appropriateness

 90% of respondent had no concerns of sharing
  information

 12 only 54% knew the audit was taking place
 12 83% of those who applied to more than one state



   “THEY MIGHT CHANGE MY RANKING, THEY
        MIGHT NOT BE TRANSPARENT.”
              Audit Appropriateness

 “This process places an unfair level of judgement on
  applicants. Eg If a person has a 2 offers and a spouse
  whose employment is uncertain the person shouldn't
  feel forced to make a sudden choice... If you only
  want people to accept one nationally it should be a
  national selection process.- Plain and simple.”

     National Allocation        Audit is good   Synchronous offers   Only 1 acceptance
           Free Text Feedback: Audit

 “This is a good initiative. Please give me a job, if
  there are any left. I am still hopeful. Thank You. May
  God bless you.”
 “Wanted to go to Adelaide”
 “Knowing the audit was taking place made me feel
  more comfortable that other applicants weren't
  going to sit on/hog a few offers in different states.
  This made me feel more secure in being able to get a
  place myself.”
 Free Text Feedback: Making People Decide

 “The reason I accepted two intern positions was that
  I was guaranteed a position in NSW but I wanted to
  return to Victoria. My degree is structured such that
  if you do not pass the final barrier exams your final
  pre internship term is delayed by two months while
  you remediate. This means that if I had not been
  successful during my exams I would have to delay
  the commencement of my internship and in turn
  Victoria may have terminated my offer. My
  intentions were to decline finalise my offer as soon
  as possible.”
 Free Text Feedback: Making People Decide

 “Pretty good system. Overall very helpful and
  efficient. I didn't feel pressured to make a decision
  but was reminded a month before my final decision
  had to be confirmed which was really good and easy
  so I was happy to confirm it earlier than I probably
  would have, left to my own devices.”
     Free Text Feedback: National System

 “An audit is great but the next step is having a
  NATIONAL system in place to not only streamline the
  process of multiple offers out to the same persons but
  also to increase the productivity of matching graduates
  with positions that are unfilled.”
 “I come from NZ, where there is a coherent, centralised
  intern placement system based on one website. I find it
  ludicrous that we are forced into misleading employers
  because simple elements such as coordinated notification
  dates have not been implemented. Perhaps advice could
  be sought from across the Tasman on how to better
  facilitate internship selection.”
                       Summary

 Audit encourages people who have accepted multiple
  offers to decide quickly.
 Presence of the audit has possibly helped reduced
  the number vacant internship positions.
 Most students have no concerns with the audit.
 More communication needed to allay others concerns.
 Graduating students would like a better system,
  possibly through a national allocation process.
Thank you
