Australia faces a major supply crisis with professional IT workers. Industry representatives argue that there should be an increase in the supply of both local IT graduates and immigration IT professionals.

Additions from this source are a good thing but there is an urgent need for additional earmarked funds for the training of local students. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
