Students and young job seekers will be pleased to hear the Occupation Outlook app has been revamped. The app is there to help young people make important study and career decisions.
The popular careers app has had a makeover, with the new and improved version released today by Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment Minister Paul Goldsmith.
“The improved Occupation Outlook provides an easy-to-use overview of job demand, likely income levels, and training requirements for different career pathways,” Mr Goldsmith says.
It’s the fifth edition of the app. The latest version now covers 108 occupations; last year’s release had just 60. It’s more customisable as well and lends itself to continual updates throughout the year.
Occupations can be sorted by their income, fees and job prospect details. It also has a new matching tool for users to rate their current or desired skill levels in 12 broad subject areas to get matching occupations.
“The update highlights that there is high demand for workers in the health, engineering, ICT, and construction sectors, which is a reflection of the continuing growth of those sectors, in particular the record building boom,” says Goldsmith.
