Sectors with high demand: accountants with a strong skills base.
Victoria’s large population and urban centres, as well as its strong agricultural and manufacturing industries mean that there will always be demand for qualified accountants to work in big firms and corporations. However uncertain economic situation in the market leads to greater cautiousness and selectiveness on behalf of employers anxious to maintain a “lean team”, who can choose from a wide pool of candidates. An emerging trend in Melbourne is employers favouring competencies (such as technical skill) over work experience when it comes to hiring employees. This does not mean work experience is not important, merely that of the two, a strong skills base is given priority over extensive industry experience.
