The jobclass, or career choice, that you choose for your career depends on what you want to achieve and how you want it to unfold.
If you’re looking for a career in finance, you might be looking at a range of jobclasses including: a career that’s primarily about money, such as financial advisory and trading, and also involves the development of skills such as risk management, risk analytics and finance planning, or a career focused on the development and implementation of business solutions, such a software development or data analytics.
Jobclasses such as the one above have been around for a long time, but in recent years the number of applicants has been rising in a bid to keep up with the demand.
The rise has coincided with a shift in the role of recruiters and recruitment agencies to offer more choice to people looking for work in financial services.
“You’ll get a better idea of what your preferences are as a candidate,” says Tim Parnell, CEO of career-choice consultancy Jobclass.
“If you’re going to work for a major organisation, you’ll be able to go to a career-choosing conference, which is one way of saying ‘Look, I want to work in the financial services industry’.” The rise of jobclasses is not a result of any shortage of people in financial management, but the rise of digital technology and the increased competition among organisations to attract and retain talented people.
“The internet has opened up opportunities for people to come out of the corporate sector and look at careers,” says David Tuffley, chief executive of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
It’s a trend that has been reflected in the recent rise in jobclass listings, which have increased by 10 per cent year-on-year in the last three years. “
There’s a lot of opportunity now for people who want to start in finance.”

Jobcareers Australia chief executive John Hirst said the rise in the number and quality of jobcareers listings was partly driven by the rise and growth in the internet, which has made it easier for jobcentres to advertise their vacancies.
The number of jobcares available for candidates was also up, he said.
“For the jobcare market, it’s been growing, it has been stable over the last two or three years,” Mr Hirst told ABC News.
“I think a lot more of the employers are now thinking about people who might be willing to give them a call.”
Jobcareer trends Jobcarers Australia chief director John Hirt says the online jobcare industry is an important part of the job market and that jobcare services are a good fit for the digital economy.
“Digital technologies and the internet have given people the opportunity to connect with their career peers and connect with the skills that they need to be successful in a digital world,” he said, adding that the increase in jobcareer listings was largely driven by employers wanting to attract the best talent.
“They’re not looking for people with experience, they’re looking to hire the best people in the world to come in and work with them, to get them the skills they need, and that’s what the jobclass is about.”
In 2015, Jobcare Australia conducted a survey of jobcentre recruiters to gauge the trends in jobclasses.
The survey found that the number listed had increased by 50 per cent in the past five years, with a total of 1.9 million jobclasses listed across the country.
The largest number of jobs were in financial and investment management, with just over 8,000 listings, followed by IT, finance and healthcare.
“While some employers are looking for candidates with the same skillset as their own employees, others are looking to recruit people who have the skillset of those employees,” Mr Tuffell said.
In addition, he says jobcarers are also keen to find out about the job candidates who are looking.
“Jobcarers have a duty to make sure that those candidates that are applying to them have the same qualifications and the same job history that they have,” Mr Parnll said.
It’s not just jobcare workers who are seeking jobclass candidates.
There’s also a growing number of online jobseekers looking to apply for a job.
“This is not just for the big tech companies and the big technology companies themselves, it also applies to online job seekers,” Mr Saffron said.

It is a bit like a craze for job seekers.
It has become such a big trend in the job industry.”
Mr Pang says it’s important to look at the benefits of jobchoices and not just the downsides.
“When you look at jobcare, you look not just at the downs and the
