Complete your registration

You only need to register once on the Graduate Portal to be considered for graduate opportunities across the Queensland Government.

Once you are registered, your details are entered into a database and we will invite you to apply for graduate positions that align with your qualifications.

Your registration of interest in the portal is not a formal application for a graduate program.

Your registration will remain current until the end of the year. You will need to complete a new registration next year if you would like to be considered for graduate or student opportunities next year.

Creating an account

After reviewing the graduate opportunities available, select the relevant registration button on the Graduate Programs page. Before accessing the registration form, you will be directed to a login screen where you have the option to ‘create an account’.

If you have already applied for a job on Queensland Government’s SmartJobs, or have registered your interest on the Graduate Portal in a previous year, login using your existing username (email) and password and you will be directed to the registration form.

If you do not have an existing Graduate Portal or Smart Jobs account, select ‘create an account’. After creating an account, login using your new account details and you will be directed to the registration form.

Password and log in

If you have forgotten your password, select ‘I forgot my password’ and a temporary password will be sent to your registered email address.

If you receive a message saying the ‘account has been registered’, select ‘I forgot my password’ and a temporary password will be sent to your email address.

Upload attachments

You will need to upload a copy of your curriculum vitae and academic transcript where indicated on the registration form.

These file types are accepted:

  • doc
  • pdf
  • docx
  • rtf
  • jpg
  • jpeg
  • txt
  • bmp
  • gif

Files cannot be larger than 2 megabytes.

Selecting 'view attachments' will allow you to view what has already been attached and remove any attachments that are not relevant.

If you are still having issues uploading your documents try:

  • checking the file size
  • removing any saved drafts
  • clearing your cache by selecting the 'Ctrl' and 'F5' keys
  • closing your browser
  • using a different browser e.g. Mozilla Firefox or Chrome
  • starting again.

Registration status

If your registration status is ‘submitted’, your registration has been successfully received and is in the system. You will receive a confirmation email and you will  be considered for upcoming graduate opportunities. Check your junk mail folder if you do not receive the confirmation email.

Include contact details

You must include your mobile or home phone number and email address in your registration form, so that we can contact you if you are invited to apply for a program.


Select your qualification discipline in the registration form. If your qualification discipline is not listed as an option please select ‘other’ and detail your discipline.

Grades and extra-curricular activities

When assessing graduate applications, some agencies may use your GPA to shortlist candidates. Ensure your GPA is based on the seven grade point average scale. A conversion chart is available on the registration form to assist in completing this question.

However, all program coordinators will be reviewing your application for activities that demonstrate development of interpersonal and professional skills, such as:

  • work experience
  • volunteering
  • part-time and casual work.

Select department preferences

You can select two preferred departments in which you would like to work. This will not exclude you from being considered for programs in other departments.
