What ‘Australian Jobs 2018’ means for your career change

By Nicola Vass - 22nd May 2018  |  Career Management , Government , Individuals , Workforces for the Future

The Department of Jobs and Small Business has released the AUSTRALIAN JOBS 2018 publication. There are many signs of good news for young people, and people looking to change their career at any age. Importantly, employers are starting to value people’s attributes as much as they do technical skills.

Highlights include:

  • “Employability skills, or soft skills, cover a broad range of personal attributes and transferable skills that are very important to employers….. Research by the Department of Jobs and Small Business has found that around 70% of employers place at least as much emphasis, if not more, on employability skills than they do on technical skills.”
  • “Retail Trade, Accommodation and Food Services and Construction all employ large numbers of young people. These industries are projected to collectively add 264,000 new jobs over the five years to May 2022”
  • “Tertiary study is not just for young people, with thousands of vocational and higher education students aged in their 30s or older”
