Young adults in Australia are likely to have a range of positions throughout their career. Studies from Australian Jobs 2018 show that Australians will make an average of 17 changes in employers and work across five different careers.
Why should you care about this now if you’re not looking to change positions right now?
It’s important to have adaptable qualities and skills in any position but when it comes time for any promotion, movement or change, you will have an edge up with any position on the market.
Making sure you do your research and ensuring you have adaptable skills will be extremely beneficial. Some skills that are beneficial in any position are;
- Clear communication
- Strong presentation
- Digital literacy
- Critical thinking
In addition to these, specialising in one industry will obviously benefit you in that field. Obtaining diplomas, degrees or any certification can help.
Even keeping up on the news within your industry; setting up google alerts or checking in every now and then will keep you in the know with advances, new technologies and just give you a general idea of what’s happening outside of your workplace.
Occupations that are expected to grow most in the near future are Registered Nurses, Aged and Disabled Carers, Accountants, and Electricians.
Would you consider studying in one of these areas or even switching up your career?
