Salary of in-demand Jobs in Australia
- Maria Theresa S. Samante Email this article

Alongside of working overseas is the salary for budgeting purposes. Foreign workers who want to land a job in Australia wonder how much they would earn in their chosen profession. Now, you donít have to think since the Hays Salary Survey has released the salary of jobs included in the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL).

 

The Hays Salary Survey 2006 shows the annual salary as well as the average weekly wage of every occupation; professional, associate professional and trades persons.

 

The MODL is reviewed every six months or twice a year. This doesnít mean that the list of job changes everytime the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) make an update. The list would only be changed if thereís a development with the labor market trend.

 

Here is the salary guide for the MODL as of September 2006:
