Information technology: one of the fastest-growing industries in Australia
Looking for a career that’s basically future-proof? IT is… well… it. The industry as a whole, in terms of Australian jobs, is projected to grow by a massive 26.6% over the next few years up to 2025. To put that in perspective, the total growth for all jobs is expected to be 7.8%. It makes a lot of sense, when you think about how much of our daily lives revolve around information technology, from our social lives to our businesses.
Opportunities for web developers
One of the most exciting and rewarding specialisations within IT is web development. Government statistics and employment vacancy advertisements tell us that web developers work across a variety of projects in diverse industries. From custom web-based applications in the healthcare industry, to customer-centric eCommerce experiences, to super-secure online finance services, web developers do it all. And they’re well rewarded for it. Average salaries for web developers are around $1,596 per week. And those that make it to the management level earn even more impressive compensation. The average weekly pay for an ICT manager, including managers of web development projects, is $2,766. The best part? It’s a job with a ton of built-in flexibility that can easily be done remotely.
