Discover career progression of top AU courses

My future career

Before deciding on the course that you would like to enrol in, you should understand the career progression of the course. Why? Imagine that you choose to study Construction Management, which may seem appealing from a student perspective – but the reality of being outdoors regularly in a tropical country like Malaysia may not be your dream job. Or imagine choosing Medicine as a course of study, but not knowing enough about what it’s like to be a medical doctor – you don’t want to quit when it’s too late.

MABECS Global education advisors have put together a few useful references that may help you understand your future career better. We must admit that it does not guarantee your future success, but it would help you to make a more discerning choice!

Read on to find where you belong:

1. “I have no idea which course I should study or what I’d like to work as”

If you’re completely clueless on what you want to work as in the future, Job Outlook is a good place to start. Job Outlook is an initiative of the Australian Government National Skills Commission. Job Outlook provides information about Australian careers, labour market trends and employment projections.1 You can find many helpful tools on Job Outlook, such as the Career Quiz that helps you understand your work style and explore careers you might enjoy.

Of course, we wrote the above with the assumption that what you study will be what you’d like to pursue as a career. If you’re going to focus purely on studying first, here are some useful links on courses in demand in Australia and critical occupations list in Malaysia. For Malaysia, the critical courses in demand based on the study by TalentCorp in 2019/2020 are Engineering, Computer Science, Business, Agriculture, Actuarial Science, Chemistry, Occupational Safety and Health, Graphic and Multimedia Design, Medicine, as well as Logistics and Supply Chain.

2. “I have decided on some courses I am interested in”

Now that you have decided, your next step is a lot more straightforward. If you are considering a career in Australia after your graduation, you may look at Job Outlook’s “Explore Careers” tool, created by the Australian Government National Skills Commission. “Explore Careers” lets you explore careers by filtering according to keywords, industry, weekly salary, skill level required, future prospect of the job, career pathways, and work environment. The search results provide you with a run-down on the job’s daily tasks too. It even considers your work style in the tool!

For example, based on Job Outlook, a Software and Applications Programmer in Australia earns a weekly salary of $2003, has a very strong future growth, with 17% female gender share. People with this job title work an average of 41 hours per week.
