One of the fundamental issues facing the developed world is their skill shortage as a result of regional mismatch, cyclical shifts, inadequate training levels and labour market restructuring. Australia has a range of professions that fall under the Occupation Skill Shortages category as companies fail to find suitable candidates from within the local talent pool to perform certain jobs. This opens up a wide array of opportunities for the international student and labour market. Some sectors facing skill shortages include Construction, Engineering (Structural, Electrical, Mechanical Transport, Chemical and Civil), Health Care, Accounting and Finance (Management, Taxation and Auditing), Mining (Excluding Petroleum) as well as Agriculture.
