Rise of Unemployment in Australia + Future-proofing your job [MEDIA]

Monday, July 15, 2013

Mark McCrindle joins the Daily Edition team on 11 July 2013 to unravel the best and worst industries to consider when looking for work. 

In June, Australia's unemployment rate rose to 5.7% (up 0.2% from May figures), with the number of unemployed people in Australia rising by 24,000. More companies are shifting full-time roles for part-time roles, and household budgets are increasingly getting tighter. In these times it is crucial for employees to identify future areas of growth and areas of job decline.

Jobs that are struggling include those that require a low skill base and those phased out by technology, especially as retail trade takes a hit on the sale of discretionary items. New jobs evolve as emerging sectors take off – in Australia, opportunities are being created by the latest baby boom, our ageing population, and the global opportunities presented by proximity to Asian markets.

Future-proofing your career comes through diversifying skills and upskilling, choosing multiple career options, and skilling in economic growth areas that will continue to thrive.
