The construction industry can boom even when the real estate market takes a rest because it is driven by many factors. And in NSW this is an industry with some serious skills shortages, meaning employment prospects in this area are pretty good to begin with.

And then there is the mining and resources sector. And really, is this any surprise to anyone?

The result – generous remuneration packages. Some mining jobs with great salaries include work health & safety officer, high risk work trainer & assessor and recruitment coordinator.
