One in five Australian job seekers would like to work in the health sector higher than any other industry.
This is based on a study of 5000 students commissioned by the career advice site and job boards Skillsroad, which is supported by Business Australia and various other chambers of commerce.
After health care, which is 21 percent, The following most sought-after sectors among job seekers of the younger generation were education and training with 12 percent and professional services with 11 percent.
Jasmine Davis, president of the Australian Medical Students Association, said it’s inspiring but not shocking to see many students wanting to get into the field.
This 25-year-old University of Melbourne student is finishing a doctorate in medical science and a master’s degree in public health.
“Anecdotally, we’ve noticed a growing interest in the study of health care in general,” Ms. Davis told The New Daily.
“Medicine is, naturally always a well-liked career choice for students, since it has the ability to assist people, but it’s very competitive as we’ve observed that students tend to choose to go to courses that require competitiveness.”
She said that healthcare professionals are in high demand and that the field provides job seekers with a steady career pathway.
“That notion of who are and who aren’t essential employees in communities was exposed during the epidemic,” she said.
“And clearly, the work in healthcare is among those jobs that was clear to show to be an essential part of the workforce. was crucial in those days.”
Business NSW chief executive Daniel Hunter, The company associated with Skillsroad also made the same claim.
“During the outbreak, we’ve observed some of these health sectors up in the lights, which can refer to as the rock-star effect,” said Dr. X.
“Seeing celebrities like Dr. Kerry Chant, I think, attract people to the business.
“The findings could offer some optimism to the sector of healthcare which has been struggling under the burden of the shortage of staff and pandemic burnout.”
The flip side of the pandemic.
The pandemic has demonstrated the importance of healthcare workers and has also increased the cost of healthcare, making the work challenging.
Before the outbreak, the students were forced to have their classes rescheduled and attend courses on the internet.
Today, the variety of pressures in the business can make it difficult for students and job seekers to make it into the industry.
“If we’re in a position with no one to talk with, and the only people we’re looking at are burned-out doctors, and that doctors who are burnt out to be teaching, and they’re exhausted and their health and mental state is not good. This influences the students who are suffering from the same,” Ms. Davis said.
“So I’m sure we’re not yet seeing the full extent of the effects of the pandemic will have not only on doctors, but also on the healthcare profession in general.”
The backlog in elective procedures has altered the methods students and graduates undergo.
COVID-safe practices also mean that graduates and students will not have practical experience treating patients suffering from pneumonia or bronchitis.
“But generally, I think that universities have done a great job to ensure that students are in a position to complete the work and will be excellent and secure physicians,” Ms. Davis said.
“It’s all to have their personal personal sense of confidence in their skills , which obviously it comes from experience and experience.”
