There are a large number of sources of information available for use when making these decisions. The following links outline some of these:  

Informal sources of labour market information on locations, industry and occupations can also be helpful and found through speaking with experts in the industry. This includes professional career practitioners, experienced recruiters, industry groups, and professional associations, the newspaper and media.

It’s important, with any information, that you assess the reliability and value of the data by investigating where and when the information was sourced from, and who is providing that information. It’s also important to understand that while understanding the labour market is important, labour market data can change quickly and sometimes be unreliable.

Undertaking a thorough assessment of labour market information can be tough so talking with a Career Development professional after you leave the Australian Defence Force can be highly helpful in understanding and navigating this complex but important area.
