After receiving thousands of entries from students all over the country, the Top 100 finalists for the 2022 DHL GradStar Awards have been announced. 

Now in its 7th year the GradStar Awards recognise the most employable full-time students in the country and are the only programme of its kind where thousands of students enter in order to be recognised by the top employers in the land. 

Headlined by sponsor DHL, and also supported by top employers Epiroc, Fasken, Absa, FutureFit Academy, and Golden Key Honours Society, the Awards are taken seriously by employers. Over the past 2 years, now more than ever, students have recognised their need to be noticed by employers in order to secure employment for the future. 

Laura Barker – founder of the GradStar Awards and CEO of BlackBark Productions observed: “During this time of COVID, employers need to stay relevant and visible to the workforce of the future, and through the GradStar Programme we have found a way to bridge the gap between the university and the world of work. We are happy to be back to a live event and wish all of the Top 100 all the best for the remainder of the competition.”

Dr Eric Albertini, founder of 3C Leadership has been instrumental in developing the judging framework for the GradStar Awards, and speaking during a live webinar to announce the Top 100 observed that he had found the calibre of entries to be extremely high and the results reflect all the qualities and attributes of a successful future employee. 

Paul Clegg from DHL, who have demonstrated their commitment to supporting talent through this programme for 5 years comment “We are thrilled to be associated with the GradStar program as we believe there is no better investment to make than in the future leaders of the great country of ours and it is without question that the top 100 GradStar selected students fit into that category.”

The Top 100 Finalists will engage in a full day of workshops with the Sponsor Employers on 1st of December, after which a “10 of the Finest” will be selected by the sponsors and announced at a live Gala dinner on the evening of the 1st of December, 2022.
