The latest instalment in AIG’s Australian geoscientist employment survey series is open for contributions. Click here to complete the survey.
This survey will provide data on trends in geoscientist employment in Australia during the first quarter (January, February, March) of 2019. In the final quarter of 2018 quarter, the Australian geoscientists unemployment rate continued a gradual, downward trend, but increased from 8.3% at the end of September, to 9.1% at the end of December. Underemployment amongst self-employed geoscientists increased markedly. There is still a general perception that exploration and mining investment is strengthening in Australia, but this may not be flowing through to strongly improved employment prospects for geoscientists.
The survey takes only two or three minutes to complete. You do not need to be an AIG member to contribute. No data that could personally identify respondents is collected. Contributions to the survey are required from both employed and unemployed geoscientists to ensure the relevance of results. Your completing the survey really helps to make a difference to the standing and knowledge of our profession.
The survey will be open for contributions until 21st April 2019. Every contribution adds to the reliability of the survey results.
Sincere thanks in advance for your continued support.
