Anytime is a good time to gain 'transferable skills' for in demand jobs in Australia
The jobs landscape in Australia has changed, and continues to evolve, moving away from manufacturing and more towards the services industry with more than three in four Australians employed in the services industry presently.
So, what does this mean for jobs in Australia?
Well, jobs that require a 'human' touch, and one that cannot be easily automated are set to grow, especially in the health and social services industry with roles like Aged and Disabled carers and Registered Nurses in hot demand along with other industries like teaching, hospitality, trades, and information technology.

How can you chase new job opportunities?
Ensure you have current and relevant 'transferable' skills employers across diverse industries seek in their employees these days. These transferable skills are:
- Critical thinking
- Good communication
- Problem Solving
- Strong work ethic
And the best way to acquire these skills is to either re-skill (update your current skills) or undertake some re-training.
Start by asking yourself the following questions:
- How many of these transferable skills do I have?
- What skills and knowledge do you need to gain?
Identify the qualifications you need, and embark on a learning and a re-training journey. Find a course and book into one.
