In context to Australia, increase in tourism industry has led to such increment in the accommodation and food industry. Decrease in Australian dollar and increase in the international student has widely contributed in the mass increment of the career in industry.

According to the Australian labour market, this industry employees more than 635,000 employees till date and is expected to increase career rate by 4 % i.e. around 75,000 in the industry(“ABS,”2017).  Increasing population and traffic has led to such increase of career in the industry. The job trends in the transport and warehouse market looks quite demanding according to the global job market as well.


  1. Mining employment:

Mining industry can be taken as one of the strongest industry in the past years however due to the lower interest in the exploration in comparison to the other industry, the pace is decreasing. Although, the mining employment is expected to increase by 2.4 % or 5600 in the next five years making the total employment of 37,500(“ABS,”2017). The numbers for the industry looks quite mass but in the years 2012, it was equal to the 74,300. The slightly increment of the job market is due to the increasing interest in the mining of gold and high demand of the metal.


  1. Manufacture:

Manufacture industry is one of the dominant industry in the market with the increase rate of about 13.23 % globally(“AED,”2016). However, in context to Australia, the career in the manufacturing industry is expected to decline by 4.2 % over the next 5 years(“ABS,”2017). Such dropping of the manufacture is driven by the closure of the major motor part manufacture. Also, the shutdown of the ford and Toyota is reflected in the reduction.
