Abstract

This is one in a series of case studies to enhance graduate employability. The theme of this case study is:

• Employment through multi-national corporations

Multi-national corporations (MNCs) are businesses that have offices, employees and other resources in more than one country. Three distinct advantages of MNCs from the perspective of graduate employees are that: • MNCs have a large variety of departments and roles. • MNCs frequently host internships and graduate development programs. • MNCs often provide an opportunity for international engagement and experience. Despite these advantages, graduates state that MNC employment does not suit everyone, and that there are low employment vacancies across sectors including in MNCs. As one graduate stated, “There are more graduates than there are jobs.” One of the unique challenges of MNCs from an employability perspective is that, despite the advantages listed above, they are often perceived as traditional, staid and thereby not cutting-edge and innovative. A number of MNCs have responded to emerging employment trends by welcoming, inviting and developing intrapreneurship as one of a number of strategies to attract and retain graduates.
