How Easy is it to Get a Job in Australia?.
Some people say that getting a job is quite easy in Australia, but some others say it is very hard. Which ones are correct?
The simple answer is: BOTH. Some find it easy, some find it very hard, and some find it impossible.
If you are skilled in a profession or trade where there are not enough skilled people, then getting a job can be quite easy. Some companies will even pay removal costs and high bonuses to get you to work for them.
Not everyone is that lucky.
Costco opened a new store in Ipswich recently, and created 280 new jobs for the area. Great excitement for many people. More chances to get a job.
There were 12,400 unemployed in that area in January 2019. Costco received over 8,000 job applications for those positions, according to a statement by a Costco manager.
The BEST 280 people got the available jobs.
For every 1 person that got a job, 27 people did not.
Using that sort of job application result:
- 280 people might say that getting a job is easy.
- 7,720 might say that getting a job is NOT easy.
