Knowing which industries are expanding and which ones are declining is important because you wouldn’t want to invest your time and money obtaining qualifications for a career or industry that is slowly fading away.
Currently, there is a mismatch between the demand and supply for labour in the Sri Lankan job market. Even though there are plenty of job vacancies in certain industries, there is a shortage of applicants in those areas. On the other hand, the sectors such as Banking, Human Resources and Accounting receive a lot of applicants even though there are fewer openings.
Selecting a thriving industry in which you can flourish will expand your opportunities and provide greater job security.
Understanding the world of work and how it applies to the local labour market will prepare you for successful career development and provide a greater pay off in the long run.
