Who we are
CSIRO Digital Careers delivers real world, future-focused education initiatives to help students pursue an exciting digital career. The jobs of the future will require digital technology skills, from marketing and multimedia through to agriculture, finance and health. Digital Careers prepares students with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in the workforce of tomorrow.
Why Digital Careers
The current global shortage of ICT professionals means there is an enormous opportunity for students considering an exciting career. This growing demand for digital skills isn't just limited to the ICT sector. Digital technologies are transforming our workforce, new jobs will be created or reshaped, while other jobs may disappear.
It's predicted that about 85 per cent of jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet. Digital Careers supports teachers and encourages students' understanding of digital technologies and the foundational skills they require in an ever-changing workforce.
