Online job advertisements published on SEEK fell by 8.4% year-on-year in November, the company says, adding that community services and development was the sector with the highest ad growth, showing an increase of 14.6% year-on-year.

Other sectors to show growth in November were healthcare and medical (5.0%) and education and training (3.0%), the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Average advertised salaries were up by 2.1% year-on-year, SEEK said, with the figure for November being $88,418. The ACT was tops in this, with an average salary of $91,958 (up 4.7%), followed by Tasmania at 79,804 (up 3.0%).

SEEK ANZ managing director Kendra Banks said these three sectors were unchanged from previous months.

“Although we’re nearing the end of the year, these sectors continue to offer many opportunities for job seekers," she said.

"For example, education and training has a strong demand for secondary and primary teachers, and childcare and after school carers. The healthcare and medical sector is showing demand for general practitioners, aged care nurses and psychologists, counsellors and social workers. We anticipate this demand will continue into the new year.

“When we look at our state-by-state breakdown, we see declining ad volume in the large employing states as they come down from historically high levels. There is still a huge number of employment opportunities across NSW with more than 40,000 listed in Sydney right now and in Victoria over 33,000 job opportunities in Melbourne.

"The smaller states are ticking along with some encouraging growth coming out of regional areas. This is particularly evident in Western Australia where Albany, Great Southern, Bunbury are posting double digit monthly job ad growth.

"Northam and the Wheatbelt are also showing good job opportunities. Healthcare and medical and mining, resources and energy appear to be the industries driving the opportunities."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
