Demand In

   Australia is in demand of many types of professionals to fulfil the market needs. It is not a demand for simple workers but for qualified professionals with qualification and work experience in those fields.

Professions in demand are seen with good eyes by the Immigration department, which every year or so releases a list of new demands and shortages in different areas of work all over Australia. The Immigration Department goes even further giving extra point in the Skilled Immigration Category for those graduated or qualified in a skill in demand. 

There are two types of demand, one of Technical or vocational level and another for tertiary level. The biggest demand in August 2007 was in the medical sector. Dentists radiologists, nurses, Doctors and surgeon were in high demand. Some others professionals of technical levels such as Child Cares, chefs, Hairdressers, and many speciality in the hospitality industry including chefs were also in demand. It is very important to understand that the department changes often the list depending upon the needs, so what is written here today, may not still be in demand tomorrow, so the best you can do is to check directly with the department with the links supplied below.
