Whether you are a current student or recent graduate researching your career options, there are a number of websites that can provide you with the latest salary information for your sector.

The Graduate Careers Australia website contains a comprehensive report on graduate jobs and salaries by field of study. The My Career website also provides a breakdown of graduate salaries by state and occupation. This data is based on job ads submitted to the website in the previous 90 days and is updated weekly.

In addition, you can visit the website of your relevant professional association, as some provide salary information specific to the industries or professions represented by the association (eg.  APESMA, CPA Australia, AIIA). If there is no salary information on the website of your relevant professional association, you may like to contact them directly to enquire.

General salary and wage award information, as well as advice and assistance, can be found on a number of websites including Fair Work Commission and Hays. You can also use Fair Work Australia’s Pay Rates Calculator for information about pay scales and base rates of pay which apply to most casual employment opportunities.
