THE top 10 most popular jobs Aussies are returning home for are in engineering, underwriting, accounting, nursing, business banking, law, telecommunications, sales, IT and marketing, according to Aussie recruitment website TrackMeBack.com.
“The Australian employment sector has really started to hot up in recent weeks as we move away from the typically quiet first few weeks of the year,’’ said Caroline Rafferty, General Manager of TrackMeBack.com, which specialises in connecting Aussies and Kiwis with work back home.
“The biggest mistake job hunters make when returning home is overshooting when it comes to salary expectations. Make sure you do your homework, understand your market value and seek advice.’’
Australia’s jobs market has reported a strong start to 2010 with the national unemployment rate falling to 5.3 per cent, the lowest level in a year.
TrackMeBack.com predicts the best opportunities this year will lie in energy, health, pharmaceuticals, financial services, media and fast moving consumer goods sectors.
