Upskilling tips & advice

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has arrived and rapidly gained ground. Many jobs in Australia and globally are being automated via technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things and cloud computing.

Research suggests about 60% of occupations could see at least a third of their job tasks automated, while the half-life of learned skills is now about five years. This makes constant learning a requirement of ongoing career success.

In this collection of articles we look at how you can continually develop and learn new skills to stay relevant and employable in the Australian jobs market in the face of all this rapid change.
