It is widely identified that there is a shortage of trained professionals and tradesman across a wide spectrum of occupations in Australia. The surveying profession is just one of those identified by the federal government. The current status quo in the surveying employment market ensures that demand for professional land surveyors far outstrips supply. Many organisations are headhunting overseas or looking towards their current semi-skilled employees and encouraging those employees to obtain qualifications by either providing a support structure or offering a cadetship.

This article will examine the financial implications of a mix of study and employment options faced by students/employees.
