CONTENTS

Using data from the ABS Labour Force supplementary surveys, the following articles explore the interaction of migrants with the Australian labour market.


JOB SEARCH EXPERIENCE OF MIGRANTS

This article looks at the job search related experiences of migrants, broadly defined by their country of birth and year of arrival to Australia. The discussion is presented for two groups in the labour force; unemployed migrants (those seeking work) and recently employed migrants (those who started their current job in the last 12 months). The article explores various aspects including; previous work experience, occupations and levels of qualifications, the duration of current unemployment or time looking for work, the steps taken to attain work and also the difficulties faced in finding work.

FORMS OF EMPLOYMENT - A COMPARISON OF AUSTRALIAN AND OVERSEAS BORN PERSONS

This article examines the types of employment in the Australian labour market for both Australian and overseas born people. Of particular interest is the type of employment migrants obtain once they become settled in the community and how this compares to that of the Australian born people in the workforce. The article focuses on the three broad types of employment; employees, independent contractors and business operators.
