Deciding Where to Work as an Economist in Australia

You would be well served by first deciding which areas you wish to live in the country. From there, you can then look at costs of living compared to the average starting salary. For instance, you will need to know basic prices for transportation, housing, food, and more. When adding up basic expenses, use the low end of the average starting salary and see if the figure left over is adequate for your needs.
From there, it can be a simple matter of deciding upon an industry to start out and checking private or government job banks for available positions.
