Not sure what career or study pathway to take?
Demand for just about any Health Professionals, Carers and Aides, Community and Personal Service Workers, Clerical and Office Support Workers, and IT Professionals occupations you can think of are projected to increase significantly over the next 5 years.
Here is a sample of occupations projected to be in demand or in decline from a range of industry sectors.
