Occupations in Demand For Australian Migration
Favorite

Whether you’re just looking to choose the right course as an international student in Australia or you have just finished your studies in Australia, it’s never too early to start thinking about building a career.

Why Some Jobs Are In Demand

One of the options open to you after completing your studies is to build your career in Australia by becoming an Australian permanent resident.

Now the process might not be a straightforward one but it is still something that is of interest to many international students who are either studying or have finished their studies in Australia.

One of the key issues you need to address in this process is that you need to be aware that becoming a permanent resident in Australia is based on those occupations that are of benefit to the Australian economy.

What this means is that for you to become a permanent resident in Australia, your chosen area of occupation must be one of those that are important to the economy but where there is a significant level of shortage.

As a result, the Australian Government has released a list of occupations that fall within this category.

These occupations are basically ones that are not being filled by the current workforce giving migrants an opportunity to fill these positions and providing a pathway to becoming permanent residents.

What does this all mean for international students?

It means if you gain your qualification in any of the occupation fields in the list such as healthcare, professional services or constructions etc. you can look into applying to become a permanent resident.

The occupations on this list are the most in demand and they are the ones that have been projected to bring about significant employment over the next five years.
