Another special edition. Today, the annual 'Australian Jobs' Report has just been released - the most accurate & specific guide in Australia, as to the state of the Australian Labour Market (ie. all the jobs in our country), as well as the best tips for entering it.

'Australian Jobs' is the National Skills Commission’s annual analysis of the Australian 'World of Work', designed for those considering future training and employment (including & especially school students!). It is an easy-to-understand resource - with plenty of images to explain the information - which offers excellent insights to inform your career choices based on location, industry, occupation, interests and incentives. 'Australian Jobs' helps identify the qualification levels and industries and jobs most in demand.

After an overview as to where we are as a country now thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic (including 'resilient' occupations & industries), there are 3 clear areas to read through regarding labour market insight:

  1. Reading by location: You can identify the top employing industries nationally, or by state or territory. For example, in all Australian States the top employing industry is Health Care & Social Assistance while for both the Territories the top employing industry is Public Administration and Safety. In informing career choices, this can assist you in determining what skills and qualifications you may need based on the top employing industries where you live.
  2. Reading by industry: You can identify how viable a career in an industry may be, the qualification level commonly required by that industry (ie. Yr12 only? VET - what level VET? Higher Ed - undergrad or postgrad?), and the occupations that fall within that industry. Using the previous example, the data shows that demand continues to grow for Health Care & Social Assistance, more than 80% of workers have a post-school qualification, and the top employing occupations in this industry include carers.
  3. Reading by occupation: You can gain insights into trends of specific occupations. In the Community and Personal Service Workers occupations list (which includes Health Care and Social Assistance), the data shows that carers and aides are the top employing occupations, with over 50% of all these workers holding a Certificate III or post-school qualification, more than 80% of these workers are female, and 60% work part-time.
The second half of 'Australian Jobs' provides a step-by-step process on how to find a job/secure a job, and there's some absolutely fantastic information & resources here. From where vacancies are located, to what skills employers are looking for & how to develop them (there should be no surprises here - you can develop these skills in school!), to demonstrating how formal education can help you achieve career goals and outlining what Federal Government programs are available to assist you, to the truth about what percentage of employers will take someone on with no working experience (see below...), the amount of tips & tricks available to you are immense.
Used alongside the resources on siriuscollegecareers.com, and the resources available inside your Student Secure Area such as the careers quiz, you’ll be as informed as possible with the trends of the 'real world' you'll be entering soon, and equipped with job seeking support relevant to our national COVID-19 recovery.

To access this important & highly useful information, and ensure that you are making short & long-term career choices that are informed by accurate information (and not just "what you've been told") click here.

A special edition today, focusing specifically on the newest information provided about where Bachelor-level tertiary graduates have gone after their studies.

This is a survey of just over 130,000 graduates, giving you accurate information about a range of different items that you should be considering when making post-school choices into higher education. Questions like these can be answered by looking at this information:
  • "Which provider currently gives me the best chance of finding work after I finish?"
  • "If I go to ......., how much can I possibly be paid in my first job after?"
  • "How happy are students at .......?"
  • "Should I consider postgraduate study based on what I'm thinking for my Bachelor degree?"
 
You can access a very easy-to-understand, and highly interactive way of understanding the information provided in this report. It is best to use a tablet or laptop/desktop to access this information. On this website, you can adjust items according to the webpage you're on, to make it really suit your needs. Items such as the following can be tailored: 
  • What year you want to look at (2016-2020)
  • What study areas you want to focus on (eg. 1 page has 'Engineering', whereas another page has all the different 'Engineering' options)
  • Demographics (gender, age, disability, socio-economic status etc.)
  • What level of graduate to look at (undergraduate (Bachelor), postgraduate: coursework or postgraduate: research)
  • Specific universities / non-uni Bachelor providers.
This interactive webpage is broken into 11 different areas, which are explained below:
  1. Full-time work & employment outcomes by various demographics.
  2. Full-time employment rates, looking at 21 different study areas (Science, Health, Education, Business etc.).
  3. Full-time employment rates, looking at 45 different study areas (the same 21 as before, but further broken down into specific areas within, as stated earlier).
  4. Full-time median salary (male & female) based on the 21 prior stated study areas.
  5. Full-time median salary (male & female) based on the 45 prior stated study areas.
  6. Full-time employment outcomes, based on what university a student attends (yesterday's teaser information came from here).
  7. Full-time employment outcomes, based on what non-university provider a student attends.
  8. The main reasons why graduates (male & female; both under-and-postgraduate) don't work as much as they want to.
  9. The main reasons why graduates (male & female; both under-and-postgraduate) don't use the skills & education they've graduated with.
  10. The amount of undergraduate students who continue into postgraduate study, based on what they studied in their undergraduate degree.
  11. How happy/satisfied graduates (under-and-postgraduate) were with their course, based on the 21 study areas.

  • Yr12: VU Non-ATAR Bachelor degree options - For the majority of the courses at Victoria University (VU), your ATAR is not considered in our admissions process. VU's admissions process is simple - all you need to do is ensure you have met the relevant prerequisites (listed on the course page) & preference VU through VTAC or apply direct depending on your circumstances. Courses that do not require an ATAR for entry are listed via the link following. VU also offer a small number of courses that do require an ATAR. VU have many stories of graduates whose course has not required an ATAR and they have achieved remarkable success in their studies and careers - remember, the ATAR is just a key to unlock a door...do all doors need keys??? To see the extensive non-ATAR course list, click here.
  • Yrs 10-12: Monash Engineering update - Biomedical engineering specialisation is now offered in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). Those of you seeking a career combining medicine and technology can now undertake the new biomedical engineering specialisation. You will learn to design and develop new diagnostics, monitoring tools and therapies, and build new medical instruments and devices through the study of engineering design fundamentals and biological science subjects. Biomedical engineering has a slightly different first year structure to the engineering common first year and is listed separately on VTAC (VTAC Course Code 2800328811). To learn more, click here.
  • Yrs 9-12: QILT Graduate Outcomes Survey 'teaser' - Tomorrow's News Feed will be completely dedicated to a major new piece of information called the '2020 Graduate Outcomes Survey - Short Term Graduate Outcomes in Australia' report. This major piece of information examines labour market outcomes of newly qualified higher education graduates...in other words, it gives you information on where those who have just qualified with a Bachelor degree (from uni & not from uni) have ended up. To give you a hint of what's to come, the image below shows you the percentage of Victorian university graduates in the past 2 years (so, those who finished their undergraduate degree in 2018 (orange) & 2019 (blue)) who were able to secure full-time employment (35hrs or more a week) the year after finishing their course. Every university in Australia has dropped in 2020 because of COVID-19, so the statistics aren't as good for everyone. Still, how do these facts fit with your post-school thinking?

  • 15yrs & above: Work Experience 2021 update - We have recently been informed by the Victorian Government regarding the status of Work Experience for 2021. Once the Victorian roadmap out of COVID-19-enforced closures reaches the 'last step' (scheduled for this weekend), Work Experience will be legally allowed to recommence. As such, we recommend those of you interested in undertaking any formal Work Experience placements in 2021 to begin your research & applications - it is easier to lock a position in now & rearrange if necessary, than miss out altogether because you didn't look earlier. Speak to any of your Career Development practitioners for more information, and remember there's lots of free 'Sirius-fied' resources available inside your Student Secure Area of siriuscollegecareers.com that can help you find & secure a placement. Be aware however, there are a few additional rules around Work Experience:
    • Work Exp. can only occur when your campus Principal deems it safe for experiential education to recommence as well (eg. excursions, camps etc.)
    • High-risk venues are still deemed not safe & therefore are prohibited until further notice. This is left to the judgement of the school, but places like Hospitals, Aged Care Facilities etc. are within this category of locations.
  • Yrs 9-12: Passionate about sport? Enjoy playing sport and would like to combine your sports career with study after school?

  • Yrs 9-12: I did a business degree, but don’t know what I can actually do - People go into business degrees for different reasons, but the underlying rationale for most of them seems to be this: you will never regret getting a business degree. Business degrees open so many doors that it can sometimes be overwhelming to figure out what jobs to look for afterwards. Here’s a few to consider. Click here to read more.
  • Yr12: 30,000 VCE students plead for special entry to university - An interesting observation from The Age on Wednesday. Almost two-thirds of Victorian Year 12 students have pleaded for special consideration due to disruptions caused by COVID-19 when applying for university this year. The special entry access scheme that allows universities to effectively bump up students' ATARs if their ranking falls short of a course's minimum entry requirement has been flooded with tens of thousands of applications. To read more, click here. The fact that 222% more SEAS applications were received this year as opposed to last year, gives further proof to one thing - you simply don't know what is going to happen in December, so stop using ATAR calculators (the data is from last year), and stop stressing about everyone else! Control what you can control, and just do the best you can!
