People looking to work in tech support or setting up computer networks would do well to undertake a Diploma of Networking at TAFE's Wollongong West campus.
Barring seven students who decided to go on to university study, the 15 other students who graduated with the Diploma last year secured a job.
Head teacher Terry Kofod said there were so many entry-level jobs in networking, they couldn't keep up with demand.
Mr Kofod is actually getting employers phoning him asking to employ students who haven’t even graduated yet from this year’s cohort.
"We are having an incredible success rate at the moment, even with Certificate 4 graduates," he said.
"Usually they come through and do the Certificate 4 and then the diploma. But there is so many jobs out there, employers are snapping them up as soon as they do the Certificate 4."
He said a student can do the Diploma in 12 months and pretty much walk into a job in the Illawarra.
Regional Australia Institute forecasts by 2021 up to 600 businesses and 7620 digital jobs will be created in Wollongong as a result of access to the NBN.
"They won't get paid much at the entry level but in four or five years it becomes a really well paid job. And another big plus is that a lot of networking jobs at the moment are local, so you don't have to travel to Sydney."
