A newly released mobile app by the New Zealand government is expected to enable students compare job prospects and incomes of 50 different careers and help them make good study choices.

The 2015 Occupation Outlook app was launched with third annual Occupation Outlook report that pulls together the latest information from employers, industries, the education sector and the labour market.

“We know that New Zealand is quickly developing a more highly-skilled economy,” Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment Minister Steven Joyce. “That means it is more important than ever for students to consider carefully their tertiary study options with future career options in mind.”

Demand for some types of work is growing more rapidly than for others. Access to high-demand higher-skilled occupations, for example, such as engineering and New Zealand introduces 2015 Occupation Outlook mobile app CT that provide stimulating work and good incomes is often determined by the study choices young people make before they enter senior secondary school.

“While not everyone wants to be an engineer, it is important that young people know all the options that are available and the subjects that lead to them,” the Minister explained.

The 50 occupations on the App are grouped under the industry pathways used in the Government’s Vocational Pathways programme: Construction and Infrastructure, Manufacturing and Technology, Primary Industries, Service Industries, Creative Industries, and Social and Community Services.

Included in this year’s report are two special features on careers in the manufacturing and the primary industries.

“Job prospects in manufacturing are growing rapidly,”Minister Joyce explained. “New Zealand’s traditional manufacturing industries, based on primary sector processing, are a vital part of the economy. However we are also growing a significant number of niche hi-tech manufacturers that are seeking skilled graduates at both degree and diploma level.”

Career prospects in the primary industries are another growth area, and a job in a primary industry offers many pathways and opportunities for specialisation.

“Whichever discipline that young people choose to study, it’s important that they make the most of their tertiary education,” he said.
