With Australia’s job market tightening, job seekers are looking for opportunities to stay on track with the new economy.
This year, there are some signs that the job market is starting to recover.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, unemployment in June dropped to 5.6 per cent, down from 6.3 per cent in May.
It’s the second month of jobless rates below 5 per cent.
The job market has been relatively resilient since the global financial crisis, but the number of people looking for work in the country is down.
Job seekers were able to get by in June without having a formal job offer.
Employment services provider FlexNet says there are around 500,000 job seekers in Australia who are looking to find work, but they have to be part of a company and have to have the skills required to be a software developer.
FlexNet is working with companies and agencies to find qualified people to fill those jobs.
But there’s another reason why Australia’s new tech workers are looking.
“Australia has a shortage of skilled IT developers and IT managers, which is causing a problem,” said Mr Gorman.
“[It’s] creating some really serious economic and social problems that we’re not really addressing.”
The skills shortages are creating some serious economic problems and are putting a strain on our economy.
“We’re seeing a lot of young people in the middle of the age group who may not be able to find a job, and we’re seeing more and more young Australians looking for jobs in the IT field.”
The Australian Bureau Of Statistics says Australia has one of the highest levels of job vacancies in the world.
For young people looking to enter the workforce, there’s also a strong desire for jobs where they can contribute to the economy.
There’s been a big push into the IT sector by big tech companies like Apple, Google and Amazon.
They’ve set up campuses across the country and have established the Australian IT Infrastructure Fund to help companies find and recruit skilled IT professionals.
Companies like IBM, Oracle and Cisco have also created their own IT departments in order to fill the gap.
Australia has been hit hard by the global economic crisis, with the unemployment rate rising to 15.3 percent in June.
Young people looking into the tech industry could find themselves unemployed if the job hunt continues to drag on.
There are more than 3,000 vacancies for IT jobs in Australia, according to the ACT Government.
