You would need to research if the data analytics jobs are on the high-skilled immigrants list of Australia. However, in order to have better chance I would recommend acquiring the following knowledge and expertise before applying to migrate to Australia:
- Phyton - Python is currently one of the most commonly used programming languages. Having a solid understanding of how to use Python for data analytics will probably be required for many roles. Even if it’s not a required skill, knowing and understanding Python will give you an upper hand when showing future employers the value that you can bring to their companies.(here you can find some online courses: https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?q=python%20for%20beginners&src=sac&kw=python%20for%20beginners )
- SQL - Early in your career, you’ll need at least a basic understanding of SQL. SQL is often a major component of these positions. Working with data sources is a necessary aspect of data analytics.
- Data Visualisation Skills - Knowing how to visualise data and communicate results is a huge competitive edge for job seekers.
I hope you will have a great success in the data analytics world - please do reach out if you have any further questions. I would love to hear how it goes!
Best of luck,
