Minister Cash launches the 2018 Australian Job Publication

Senior Business and Legal Studies students welcomed Minister Cash to the College who launched the 2018 edition of Australian Jobs. The publication provides an overview of trends in the Australian labour market to support job seekers and providers, careers advisers, those considering future training and work and people interested in labour market issues.

Minister Cash presented an overview of the Australian labour market to the students, in particular focusing on job opportunities for young women.

We would like to thank Minister Cash for spending time with the girls.
