Whether you’re a recent school leaver, a mature aged learner, or anything in between, understanding the trends in the job market inform you and your future decisions. It can give you a competitive edge when looking for job opportunities.
The world of work changes rapidly as we’ve seen during recent times. The job market is always in a state of adjustment and is impacted by many variables: government policies, technology, global markets, to name a few.
Taking a glimpse into the future gives projections into growth industries. We can see that health care and social assistance is Australia’s largest growing industry, followed by professional, scientific, and technical services, education and training, and construction. We also know that automation and other technologies will change the way we do things.
It’s important to remember that each industry is made up of many job roles so be open when seeking opportunities.
