Are There Any Good Jobs In Brisbane?

Are there any good jobs in Brisbane?

Do you find yourself searching for work in Brisbane, finding yourself asking the question: 

"Are there actually any good jobs in Brisbane that I can apply for?" 

Well, you're not alone. I'll explain why.

It's certainly tough out there across Queensland, Australia. As of writing this article, in early 2020, I recently read an article written by the Brisbane Times entitled "How south-east Queensland is predicted to cope with job losses" which mentioned about the dire nature of the jobs market in Brisbane and surrounding suburbs.

The article referred to a recent study conducted by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland which reported that the pandemic has resulted in 17 per cent of the state's small businesses to close, with 40 per cent of businesses laying off casual or permanent staff. 

Faced with such a situation, it's no wonder that people in Brisbane are worried about jobs, about their livelihoods. 

With businesses closing and jobs being lost, it sure does create a problem and concern for many job seekers. 

But there are still good jobs to apply for in Brisbane. For example, jobs in industries that are growing or hiring due to increased demand, such as in food services, deliveries, transportation and warehousing. 

If you do find that there is a particular role that you would like to apply for, but feel that your resume and cover letter don't quite make the mark, the team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions are specialist resume writers and can put together for you a brilliant CV to help market and promote your skills and experience.

So, you may ask, what is selection criteria and what is it used for? According to the University of Melbourne, they define selection criteria as:
Key  selection criteria are the skills, attributes, knowledge and qualifications  that the employer has defined as being essential for satisfying the  requirements of the job and can be found in every Position Description.  So that the employer has some level of surety that who they interview can meet the requirements of the position, they use a set of selection criteria, which can be anywhere from 5 criteria to 15 criteria.

Candidates who do not address each criterion run the risk of not being shortlisted for the role. A risk, that many will not want to take.
