Jobs seem to be in short supply, but the reality is quite different.
As of the 26th of November there were 2,405 accounting jobs in Melbourne according to to SEEK. If we estimate that seek has 25% of the market then the real figure would be close to 10,000 accounting-related jobs. In addition, there were 347 jobs in administration and office support, 171 in banking and financial services, plus almost 800 jobs that have a large percentage of the work as accounting related.
So what does this mean to someone looking to get into this field? It means that there are opportunities, but you need to put your best foot forward. Many people look for reasons why they will not be successful. Too young, too old, not enough experience, not the right qualifications; but what they are really saying is I am not really confident that I can do the job.
