    Default Where are the jobs?!

    When the time comes for me to rejoin the workforce I'd like to do something different than before I had kids. I was a high school science and maths teacher.

    What industries or jobs do you think/know have a demand for workers? (I'm in WA if that helps)

    It feels like everywhere I look there is a shortage of jobs. I'm happy to study to get qualifications for something but I don't want to waste time and money studying for something that won't ever get me a job. I'm also happy to do something that doesn't require study (eg: customer service).

    There is constant demand for people working in aged care - particularly helping with personal care, domestic assistance and social support in their own homes. Hours can be very flexible and you can get help with doing a cert 3 in aged care - which you can study for whilst doing the job.

    Check out the banks ,easy work and often during school hrs and you get discount on bank products like cc and loans. I work in health care in hospitals now(after i worked in a bank for many years) which is good work too and the pay is good and there always seems to be a demand for new workers and the opportunity to work your way up ,as like in the banks if you want to go further ie. nurse or technician or in the bank a CSO or lender.
