One of the main reasons that hundreds of thousands of skilled foreign workers apply for a General Skilled Migration (GSM) Worker Visa to Australia every year is that there are thousands of Australia job openings available in a variety of occupations across this incredible country! Many of these jobs in Australia have high salaries and excellent benefits, so if you are a skilled foreign worker and meet the eligibility requirements for a GSM Worker Visa to Australia, you may be able to take advantage of these excellent Australian employment opportunities!
Skilled Foreign Workers Wanted!
In April 2012, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reported that Australia had the strongest economy of any developed country in the world in 2012 and it forecast that Australia was likely to hold on to this impressive position throughout 2013. More recently, data released in early December 2015 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) revealed that Australia has enjoyed an amazing 24 consecutive YEARS of positive GDP growth! With this sustained economic growth, a consistently low unemployment rate, and increasing numbers of “baby-boomers” retiring from the workforce, Australia has been experiencing a major labor shortage. In order to help fill thousands of Australia job vacancies in a range of occupations, the Australian government has been looking overseas to qualified skilled foreign workers who can use their education, experience, skills, innovation and other talents to help keep Australia’s expanding economy booming. Skilled foreign workers with the required education, experience and skills for an occupation listed on the relevant Skilled Occupation List (SOL) published by the Australian government, who also meet the other criteria for immigration to Australia, may be able to receive an Australian GSM Worker Visa and be granted the legal right to apply for these high-demand jobs in Australia.
